Professional cleaners recommend homeowners should first de-clutter and organize their home. Here is how:
Home Organization 101 – Divide and Conquer!
Each task will become easier to perform and manageable after dividing your home into sections.
This will also let you know how much time each room should be allotted. Decide where you want to start—organize one room at a time!
Label – Are you putting winter clothes away for the year? Do you intend to begin your photo sorting project soon? Labeling boxes will let you know where to find your winter clothes or old photo albums when you are ready to take them out.
Donate – It’s guaranteed that you will come across items you or your kids have no need for anymore. Old toys, gently worn clothes and shoes, books, magazines, etc., are perfect items for donation.
You have no use for such items but somebody else can benefit from them!
Throw Out – It doesn’t make any sense to collect and keep items that aren’t useful to you or anyone else. This type of clutter will only make your home look disorganized and untidy. Discard or recycle items that no longer have a place in your home.
