Top Ways to Reorganize Your Home in the New Year
No matter how chaotic your life has felt for the past year, the start of a new one always presents a new opportunity to reorganize. Your home is the perfect place to start getting things in order. This doesn’t come as a surprise since your things tend to accumulate as the year goes by.
Read below to find some useful tips you can follow to accomplish this task.
- Identify the trouble spot in your home.
The first step in reorganizing your home for the New Year is to determine which part badly needs a makeover. Ask yourself which part of your home is the most cluttered or disorganized. This may be your kid’s closet or the garage. This is where you’ll start working.
- Get rid of the old items.
If you’re already tired of having a disorganized home, the next thing on your to-do list should be a purge. Allot 1 to 2 days of going through your closets, boxes, shelves, and overstuffed drawers to discard the things that you don’t need anymore.
Your mentality should be: “If I don’t use it, I might as well lose it.” You can donate the items to charity or sell it online. You’ll be surprised at how much space is already available once you’re done.
- Schedule your tasks.
Reorganizing can be quite overwhelming especially if you have a lot of items to store. The secret to conquering this herculean task is to break it down into manageable portions.
For example, instead of committing to cleaning the whole laundry room, just settle for 1 to 2 hours of cleaning the cabinets that store the laundry materials. You can deal with the laundry bins a week after. The following week will then be devoted to adding more shelves. By doing little tasks one by one, you will notice that you have already accomplished quite a lot.
- Organize to make things easier to access.
Arrange your items in such a way that the things you regularly use are the easiest ones to grab. They should be located at an arm’s length. The ones that you only use once a year should be stored in places that require a ladder.
- Make the rooms and furniture in your home work for you.
Are you planning to buy new items? Look for things that respond to your needs and provide additional storage space. For instance, a trunk can be used to store clothes, blankets, and supplies. It can also serve as a coffee table or bench in your room.
The items you already own can also be repurposed. The hutch in the dining room can be transformed into a bookshelf. Just apply a new coat of paint to make it look good as new.
