January 14th is Organize Your Home Day!
Do you often feel like you’re going a million miles a minute and you have no time to clean, organize, or even declutter your home? As you declutter around your home, ask yourself these questions about your items: Do I use it? Do I love it? Do I need it?
Schedule decluttering sessions that work for your schedule. Tackle areas of your home one at a time, such as:
Day 1: Organize your fridge, kitchen pantry and kitchen cabinets
Day 2: Complete your laundry, fold it, and then put it away where it belongs.
Day 3: Go through your closet. If you haven’t worn it in a year, it might be a good idea to remove it from your closet.
Here are some helpful tips to maintain the clutter as you go.
- Clean the kitchen after every meal.
- Fold blankets and put them away after using them.
- Hang up your coats and scarves after walking through the door.
- Go through papers on your counters and separate important items while getting rid of not-so-important items.
