How To Declutter & Get Organized At Home With Self Storage
Having a decluttered and organized home can add to your peace of mind and make the time you spend at home more relaxing and enjoyable.
Tackling your entire home at once can seam like an impossible task. Instead, do one room at a time and one room a day.
Renting a self storage unit to help with this will be a great asset. Follow these organization tips to help with your home organization project:
Decluttering Your Kitchen
The kitchen is probably one of the easiest rooms in your house to accumulate clutter and other items that do not belong.
Start by going through your pantry. Throw out anything that has expired immediately. For anything else you find that you don’t use, but is still good, consider donating it to a foodbank.
When putting your items back into the pantry, group your items in categories, such as, snacks, spices, soups, etc. This will make it much easier to keep track of what you have and will prevent you from spending money on duplicates.
Empty all of your cabinets. Sort through your items and put aside anything that is rarely used, such as holiday items. These are perfect to pack up and put into a storage unit, along with any fancy china.
Try to make sure you have room for everything you are keeping in your cabinets. Your countertops should be clean and clear so you have room for all of your cooking and baking.
Clutter Free Living Room
Having a clean and clutter free living room gives you a place to relax after a long day at work. This is also the place in the house where most of the congregating happens.
Empty out all of your bookcases, entertainment units and cabinets. Go through everything and get rid of anything that you no longer use.
When putting your items back, try to group like items, such as books and movies, to keep things organized and easy to find in the future.
Look at investing in creative storage options, like ottomans and tables with hidden storage. This gives you more room to play with and keeps things out of site.
Cleaning & Organizing Your Bedroom
When decluttering your bedroom, start with the closets first. Go through all of your clothing and donate or toss anything you no longer wear, doesn’t fit or is in rough shape. Go through all of your dressers and do the same.
Clean out all drawers in bedside tables and clear them off from top to bottom. These can also become a catch all so make sure to put away anything that belongs in other rooms.
Wardrobe boxes are a great way to keep your seasonal items clean and dry while away in a storage unit.
Decluttering Your Closets
Start by pulling everything out and getting rid of old towels and sheets that are no longer used or in good condition. When putting everything back, make sure to group your towels, sheets, etc., to keep it neat and organized.
For entry closets, go through everything, once again, and get rid of anything that is no longer used or that is in bad shape. Invest in some plastic storage bins to house any seasonal items that are not currently in use.
Start by emptying every cabinet you have in your bathroom, both above and below the sink. Go through everything and toss any expired make up or medications.
If you have a lot of counter space, look at getting some storage options for your make up and daily used items. This will keep them accessible and easy to find.
