2 Ways To Keep Your Home Organized

It's hard to believe that Christmas happened almost three months ago and that spring is right around the corner. Kids will be home from school soon and your life will more than likely become very busy. If you've decided to tackle the job of organizing your home before school is out, here are some good tips on getting the job done easily.

Get Rid Of Stuff

One of the easiest ways your home can become unorganized is simply having too much clutter! First, get rid of papers. Between school papers that come home with children almost every day, junk mail you never threw away, and all the other papers you accumulate, you may have piles of papers in different locations. Consider the rule of handling a paper only once. If it's useless, throw it away immediately. If it's a letter you have to answer, vow to answer it the day you receive it. If it's a bill, pay it now! Of course, you'll want to file legal papers in a safe place. Consider setting up a simple system for papers that you simply cannot deal with immediately.

Go through home decorations, clothing, toys, and everything else in your home. Of course, you don't want to throw away something that will be useful to somebody else, so have a stack for that you will give to charity and another that you want to give to friends and family members. Have a yard sale and make some money!

Rent A Storage Unit

If you aren't ready to part with some of the things that are cluttering your house or simply taking up too much space, consider putting them into storage. Renting storage units is very affordable. Usually you pay by the month and you can even establish a system where the money is taken out of your account each month so you won't neglect the payments.

Your things will be very safe. There are security cameras on site and there are guards that monitor the property. If you are storing fur coats or other delicate clothing, look for a climate controlled storage unit. If you have selected self storage, that means you can get to your belongings very easily. You can get your suitcases out for a last minute trip, your fishing gear out any time you need it, and your holiday decorations can be available to you when you're ready to decorate.
