You may have heard about the recent decluttering trend in homes, but have you put a plan of your own into motion? If 2019 brought an abundance of extra items into your living space, then 2020 is all about getting rid of what you don’t need — and keeping the things that serve a purpose in your life.
At Stone Martin Builders, we believe that 2020 is your year to enjoy the little moments without the stress of unnecessary clutter. Finally, with a new home that’s as clean as you need it to be, you can sit back, relax, and take in the best things that life has to offer. Take a look at our favorite tips and tricks to declutter your stuff:
Decide What To Store:Before you start, it’s a good idea to “assess your mess” and make a smart decision about how much storage you may want to buy. Go through each room and envision the bins you’ll need to keep everything clean and tidy, whether it’s fabric bins for a playroom or plastic bins for a food pantry.
Use Your Doors:Don’t underestimate the versatility of doors! The back of a door can be a life-saver. For instance, if your child’s room is becoming tight, an over-the-door shoe organizer will free up space that can be used for other things like sports or activities bags, hobby equipment, and more.
Clean Your Closet:First things first, ask yourself: “do I really need it?” Donate items you don’t wear or don’t make you feel great, and keep the ones you love. You’ll be amazed at how much easier (and more enjoyable) it is to step into a clean, organized closet that only holds the things you love.
Free Up Your Fridge:It’s so easy for a refrigerator to become cluttered with food, no matter how big or small your family is. Because boxes, containers, and bags that hold leftovers take up so much space, put your food in your own tupperware and label them with the date you took the food home.
Stay Trendy:A beautiful storage ottoman is not only a comfortable seat in your master bedroom, it’s a great way to keep items off the floor. Similarly, functional and stylish ladder shelves are perfect for picture frames, candles, succulents, watches and jewelry, books, and so much more.
Organize Recipes:We all grow attached to our favorite recipes, but that doesn’t mean we need the whole cookbook. One way to free up extra space in your kitchen is to scan the recipes you use and love from cookbooks, cut out your favorites from magazines, and organize them into clear pages in a binder.
Start Small:If you’re ever feeling overwhelmed, a great way to destress is to do simple tasks like making your bed. A few quick ways to clear your home (and your head) are to fluff up and organize the pillows on your couch, straighten up your rugs, dust off counters and windows, and wipe down tables.
At Stone Martin Builders, we have a good feeling that 2020 is going to be your best year yet. With a little decluttering in your spacious and comfortable home, you have the chance to start off every day with a breath of fresh air. We hope you have a wonderful start to the new year!
