Whether you are planning to sell your home this spring or not, it’s time to get organized! Bring order, calm, and control to your home through organization. An organized home is one where there’s a place for everything…and that place is not jammed full!
The first step for getting organized is to purge. The goal for purging is to get rid of everything you don’t want or need. An honest friend or professional organizer can challenge you to part with items which have always been around, but that you’ll never miss.
- Pick a small, manageable area to work through; under your sink is a great place to start.
- Remove everything and throw away whatever is expired, or hasn’t been used in a year.
- Clean what remains and group like items together. Clean empty under sink area.
- Add new shelf liner, and bins to contain like items. Place frequently used items in the front.
Now that you’ve successfully started and finished one area, move onto another. With regular purging, you will put your house in order so you can find what you need—and need what you find!
