Just store It | Dec 31, 2019

During this time of year, it is common to make New Year’s resolutions. Some of the most common New Year’s resolutions every year are to get in shape, save more money and get organized. When it comes to getting your home organized, we are your organization expert! Read below for the best organizing tips for a clutter free New Year.

New Year Organization Tips

1. Declutter

The first step is to declutter your home. Go through each room and look for items you no longer need, are too worn or damaged, or are duplicates. Items that are duplicate or are no longer needed can be donated or sold. If the item is too worn down or damaged, it can be discarded.

2. Create a Time Frame

How soon do you want this organization project to be completed? More than likely, you do not want to spend all of your New Year organizing. It is also important to break your big project into small projects. For example, maybe you want your living room to be organized by the end of the month. Breaking the project into smaller goals and setting a time frame for each goal will help to hold you accountable.

3. Get the Whole Family Involved

The best way to keep your house organized after your project is complete is to get the entire family involved. When only one person is making the effort, it can be difficult to keep the entire house organized. If the full family is involved with the project, there is a greater chance of your home getting organized and staying organized.

Re-evaluate

As time goes on, you may start to notice the clutter creeping back into your home. To keep the clutter from getting too out of hand, re-evaluate your organization project as you see fit. If after a few months, you notice clutter creeping back into your living room, declutter that room again.
