It's Resolution Check-in Time!
Updated: Jul 13, 2019
It's almost February! So let’s make your New Year's resolution of getting organized a reality with these three easy steps!
Start with the room or space that is going to yield a high impact return once it’s been organized. In order to not get overwhelmed, divide the room into 4 sections and focus on one section at a time.
MAKE THE CALL
Purge each section of anything that you either no longer need or doesn’t belong. If you’re having a hard time parting with items find a local donation center that supports a cause close to your heart. Then looking at the room as a whole, place like items with like items.
Only after these important steps should you decide on storage solutions (like bins, baskets and containers). Make sure to take measurements (create a simple room map to take shopping with you) and take into consideration things like lids, materials and construction. Don’t forget the labels that will serve as a gentle reminder to you and your family where things belong.
And lastly, enjoy your new space: you deserve it!
