With spring in our hopefully somewhat near future it is time to spring clean your home, get organized and dust off your shorts and flip flops. There are certain areas of the home where organization makes life a whole lot easier. We have for you the ways you can prepare for spring and summer now rather than when the sun is out. Two places in the home, which can use the most organization, are your closet and your garage, so get organizing!
The closet can be one of the most stressful areas of the home to organize. If you are a hoarder like me, it can be hard to part with pretty much anything that you’ve worn in the past 10 years. A good rule of thumb is if you haven’t worn something in the past two years, than you probably won’t wear it. Nothing says spring like a nice purge. Go through your closet and donate any clothes or shoes that you are no longer wearing. Once you figure out what you need and don’t need, think about investing in a closet organization system. Closet organization systems (http://www.closetamerica.com/closet-organizers) are great because they are custom to your closet needs and keep you impeccably organized. Although DIY closet organizers are a cheaper option, custom closet organization systems are made to last, which is worth the money.
Once the weather starts to get warm there are a lot more physical activities you can do. Whether you want to golf, bike, rollerblade, hula-hoop or play soccer it all comes with equipment or as my mother would say, “baggage.” It is important to keep all of your family’s sports and outdoor equipment organized. This way when it’s time to ride your bike, you know where your helmet and bike are. One thing you can do to organize your garage is buy different organizational bins. In one of the bins you can place different sports balls; in another bin you can place helmets, and any other loose needs. Another suggestion is to build cabinets in your closet or have a closet company do this for you, so that you can keep everything from hammer and nails to golf and tennis balls organized!
