Back-to-school is an exciting time of year – albeit a somewhat stressful one. Navigating new schedules requires organization. Maintaining order in the home helps ease everyone’s tensions. To help kick off the school year right, Junk King Austin is sharing 6 tips for decluttering:
1. Part Ways With The Broken and Unused
Don’t hang on to broken objects. Throw them out and free up more space. If you have items in your home that haven’t been used in the last year, donate them – they won’t be missed.
2. Utilize Your Garage
Designate an area in your garage specifically for seasonal storage. This will make the transitions in wardrobes and seasonal decorating much simpler and faster.
3. Keep Important Things Close
When assigning ‘homes’ for your objects, be sure to logically arrange them, making frequently used objects easily accessible.
4. Use It Or Lose It
It’s tempting to keep certain objects around for special occasions, but it’s not practical. So use the fancy soaps – there’s no sense keeping something around for a mythical ‘someday’.
5. Consider Space Organizers
Take a good look at the things you need to store and think about how best to store them. Shelves are very helpful, as are tubs, trunks, and inserts for drawers.
6. Move Methodically
In a burst of well-intentioned enthusiasm, it can be easy to begin multiple projects at once. Resist this urge and move forward one room at a time, always working clockwise around the space.
