Spruce it up! Dust it off! Build it new! Whatever you do to get your house in shape (considering the effort and expense to do so), you’ll want to keep your place looking great longer. One surefire way to always have a great looking home is to keep things organized. Even if “organizational skills” are not in your DNA, these quick and easy tips can help you to keep ahead of the clutter. Tame the “paper monster.” It’s easy to just toss mail onto the pile already on the countertop, especially when you have many other things to take care of. Spend just a few minutes a day to sort through the day’s mail. You’ll save time and hassle later. Also, reduce the amount of paper mail you receive by signing up for online bill pay when available (look for this option on company websites). Brave the closets. There’s never enough closet space in anyone’s home. Often closets are too cluttered to fit anything more, and the overflow ends up in a pile on the floor.A few ground rules for closet organization will help keep things orderly. • Keep only two sets of sheets for each bed in the house. Even when sheets are nicely folded, keeping old sets of linens can take up a lot of storage space. Having one set of sheets on the bed, and another clean set in the closet, keeps the space these items take up to a useful minimum. • Get rid of old pairs of shoes you rarely wear. Shoes take up a ton of valuable storage space. Shake your shoe obsession and toss the ones you no longer wear. This rule also works for old clothes in your drawers and those lone socks that pile up, waiting for their mate to return from the dryer abyss. Use the “tray trick.” Has your bedroom nightstand become a catchall? Stuff accumulates quickly. A small tray used to corral small items like loose change or keys will help to keep your bedside space from getting out of control. If an item doesn’t fit in the tray, find a more suitable place for it. Keeping your bedroom free of clutter will help you relax,
which is essential for a good night’s sleep. Donate old toys. Have your kids help you choose the toys that they’ve outgrown. Sanitize these and donate them to a local charity. Then help your children make labels for storage bins to house their remaining toys and store them there for a clutter-free look. Sniff your spices. Even dried spices get old, so give them the sniff test. If they aren’t fragrant, then probably they are also flavorless. Throw them out and buy new spices as you need them. Check your makeup. Those expiration dates on your containers of makeup are not just a ploy to get you to throw them away and buy new. Old makeup can breed bacteria, which can damage your skin. Also, the active ingredients in cosmetics can degrade and become less effective. A good rule of thumb is to replace mascara every three months, throw out foundation and concealer after one year, and buy new lipstick, eye shadow, and blush every two years. Raid the fridge. Not the inside of the refrigerator, mind you, but the outside. Notices, schedules, and art projects posted on the doors and sides of your refrigerator create a lot of visual clutter in your kitchen. Most likely, these items are ignored while the real goodies lay inside. Instead, consider using a bulletin board or message center prominently displayed for all to see – perhaps on the mudroom door, the door to the garage, or inside the pantry door. Even some wall space at the top of the cellar stairs can be put to good use this way. Reducing the clutter in your surroundings creates a more soothing environment for you and your family, freeing up brain space for more enjoyable pursuits. A few simple rules used regularly makes organizing simple and almost second nature. Your time is valuable, so invest it now instead of wasting it later. There… wasn’t that easy?
