We all are guilty of it….. throw this sweater there, or stuff that toy there… it’s shoved in a closet so no one will know. As you know, not being able to find things or see what all you have can be frustrating and stressful at times. During the holidays it can be so busy that you seldom have time to keep things tidied up around the home, but don’t worry, we are going to focus our next several posts on how to help you get the order back in your home. This is particularly important if you are looking to sell this spring or in the next several months. So settle in and let’s get to purging these unwanted items so we can have our space back, and maybe even make a little money along the way!!!
Do you have a closet that looks like this????
Keep hangers and safety pins in an extra closet so you are able to hang up any unwanted clothing items you plan on selling. Move the clothes to another closet, straight from yours, or the kids, closets instead of placing them in bins. This keeps the closets neat, the clothes unwrinkled and saves you a step before you sell them!
Use bins and baskets you can easily label to keep less used items organized on the top shelves. That way everything has a place and you can find these items when you need them!!
Spend some time going through old Christmas or winter decorations you’ve used in the past but maybe didn’t this year. Styles change, and if you switched things out, don’t repack your unused items. Sell or donate them!
For all you moms, consignment sale season is right around the corner. Now that the kids are back in school, it’s a perfect time to go through and purge all those old toys you are ready to get out of the house. Just make sure your kids don’t see you or you may wind up getting rid of nothing!
Organizing a closet is not a quick task, so spend some time during the day or on a weekend to really achieve a clean, organized space. The weather is cold, everyone is dieting, so now’s the perfect time to hole up and get to organizing. You will thank yourself come spring!
