It’s a new year. The time we take stock of our lives and make a fresh start in a new Atlantic Builders home. A great way to get moving to your new home and shed some of that old stuff is by de-cluttering. The systematic discarding of years of junk is vital and cathartic. Plus, you can then put the stuff you keep in some kind of order.
One of the easiest ways to de-clutter is to create an organization plan. Figure out how you’re going to sort things – By room? By category? Or simply “Keep”, “Toss” or “Donate”? Make sure to include everyone in the family so that there are no hurt feelings.
Some de-cluttering guidelines:
Once you have everything de-cluttered and organized, make a concerted effort to keep it that way. Teach the kids to use their cubbies or hooks for their stuff instead of leaving it all over the floor. Have designated spaces for everything, and be consistent about putting things where they belong.
