De-Clutter Your Home.
Tuesday, 25 November 2014
This is probably the busiest time of the year for most people. Everyone getting ready for Christmas but also some people are getting their houses ready for Christmas too! I am one of them, i like to make sure everything is sorted and freshened up before we head into the New Year! The last thing i want to do Christmas Day is a load of washing, dishes and sorting toys out. Honestly my girls have too much toys and its taking up way too much space. Since we've not been in our home for a year yet we're still trying to find spaces to keep most things. We are in need for storage boxes, shelves and anything really to de-clutter each room!
There are a lot of ways you can de-clutter your home. Us parents most probably have the same problem with toys and probably other stuff around the house too. I'm thinking of opting for the service by Warehouse Storage Solutions, who have great accessories to help you out with your clutter and keeping your things save. There are many ways to de-clutter your house.
1. Storage Boxes.
There are many places you can buy storage boxes. There are quite a few choices here at reasonable prices. There are many shapes and sizes so you can stick them in your wardrobes, cupboards and even under your bed! Anywhere out of sight which is a plus as it makes your house seem much tidier! Storage boxes are ideal for toys. You can get child-friendly looking storage boxes which are great for bedrooms or playrooms.
One thing I desperately need in my home is shelves. I think they're a great feature in a home, I would like some shelves in every room. They keep things out of reach from the children which is ideal. What I hate is I buy some lovely ornaments for show and the children love to play with them! So shelves is a must in our house. Even if you have some wardrobes, shelves are ideal in wardrobes to keep things. There are plenty of affordable choices of shelves on the Ikea website.
3. Sort everything out.
Just in time for Christmas it might be best to sort out through all the children's toys. Throw, sell or giveaway anything they might not play with or haven't noticed in a while! Because when Christmas comes all their new toys need a new space for keeping don't they?
4. Room by room.
The best way to de-clutter your home is do each room one by one. The last thing you want is to stress yourself out by doing half of one room then going straight to the other with out finishing the last room. Plan a child-free day, get your bin bags out and start one room at a time.
5. Wicker Baskets.
Wicker baskets are a great way to keep things out of sight. On the plus side they are nice on show too so you don't need to hide them behind a door or a cupboard. Wicker baskets are great for keeping anything such as Toys, DVD's, papers and such. They go with every single room in the house too. There are plenty of wicker basket choices here. Wicker baskets can be great for keeping clothes in, especially children's or baby's clothes, take a read here.
