Here’s where you should focus your home organization energy this season:
Clean Out Your Closets
We all get into the bad habit of shoving clutter into closets to have them out of the way, but “out of sight, out of mind” ends now! Get rid of unused clothes and accessories or put all of your winter clothing into storage to get it out of the way.
Get Your Carpets Cleaned
If the only thing you change in a room is vacuuming the floor, even the most cluttered of rooms will seem significantly cleaner by comparison. Getting your carpets cleaned takes that effect up a notch by getting rid of built up dirt and will help your home look and smell clean and fresh!
Channel Your Inner Cinderella
We’re talking about Cinderella before she finds her prince. Grab a bucket of soapy water and wash your walls, baseboards, chair rails, and woodwork, which have probably built up a nice layer of dust or grime. You’ll be amazed at how much of a difference this can make!
Get Out the Duster
When was the last time you cleaned your ceiling fans and light fixtures? It’s probably been a while. Get out the duster and a damp cleaning cloth and clear out the cob webs and grime that’s been building up over the past year. Your home will thank you!
Give Your Home a Mini Makeover
Switching out blankets, pillows, and throws for lighter fabrics and brighter colors is key. Find a duvet cover with a fun new print or new throw pillows to brighten up the room and make everything feel new and exciting again. If you want to invest a little more time and effort, consider a new wall color for a room that’s in need of a fresh coat of paint.
