Have you made some New Year’s Resolutions? Perhaps they are some of the same ones you made last year? Do these sound familiar?
This year I am going to eat healthy.
Work out more
Be more organized
Clear out the clutter in my home and garage
What are your New Year’s Resolutions? I will give you hint, not all of these are mine, some are ones I have heard other people resolve to do. The ones I am going to address today are the Be More Organized and Clear out the clutter. First, are you one who piles up the mail on your kitchen counter. That is not what that lovely kitchen island was intended for. And it’s a bear for my crew to clean around all of that clutter. So,it’s time, this year you can keep that New Year’s Resolution to clear the clutter, and don’t let it come back. When you walk in from the mail box, quickly leaf through the pile of mail, if it’s not a greeting card, a letter or a bill, or notice, put it in the trash. If it may have some value, like coupons or such, then put it in another basket, but not in the same one as your bills. Then, in the evening, after dinner, look through them and then chuck anything you don’t need.
One of the worst areas of clutter are kids bedrooms and garages. If you are taking something out to your garage because it’s not longer useful or needed in your home, then why is it in your garage? Give it to good will, or if its raggedy and dirty, throw it away! Do your children have a gazillion toys scattered all over their rooms? How bout a bench like this with storage baskets? Anything which doesn’t fit in those baskets should go away as well.
If you need help getting organized, we can do that with you. We don’t have the same emotional attachments to your clutter as you do, it’s easier for us to help you be objective. Just give us a call!!
Happy New Year
