Hands up all of you who have cluttered and messy homes that are in drastic need of a good clean? There are thousands of us in this situation, and here are a few methods to keep your home clean and organized.
Most of us have more clothes than we need, although we are loath to admit it. This leads to clothes lying around as our closets are full to bursting. It’s time for a good sort out, be ruthless. There will be stuff in there you haven’t worn for years, I guarantee it. Make space for the good stuff by getting rid of the rubbish.
It doesn’t matter how you do it, just do it. You can give them away to family and friends, pass them onto charity or even sell them. This means that the clothes lying around will have a home, and the appearance of your rooms is instantly improved.
There will be plenty of closet space for your clothes when you have had this sort out, so the ones you do wear will be kept it good condition in your closets.
The next thing you need to do is sort out those loose items that have been hanging around without a home. Clocks, picture frames, books, you know the kind of things I mean.
Now get some very large and strong bin bags and pack all these items into them. Now that all your surfaces are clear, you can place these items around our home to show them off to their best effect. This is also useful as you may find that you much prefer the minimalist approach as opposed to the clutter you had previously.
If after all this your home still doesn’t look that great, its time to get rid of some of your furniture. Bulky, old furniture can make a modern home feel very cramped, so it’s time to treat this in the same way a you did your clothes.
Be ruthless, old and bulky furniture will never create the ambiance you want in your home, and everything else that you’ve done will have been in vain.
