It’s time to get started with organizing and decluttering your home once the busyness of holiday season dies down. This is the perfect opportunity to start the year right and make your home more neat and orderly. In this article, Handyman Connection® of Boise gives you a checklist to help you organize your home after the holidays.
- Pack Up Your Holiday Decorations – Consider color-labeling your boxes when storing your holiday decorations. This will allow you to find your decorations more easily next year. Consider using colors to indicate whether to use the decorations inside or outside or to indicate priorities of importance.
- Remove Your Clutter – Use this opportunity to clear out your closet and identify items that you don’t need anymore. Donate or sell these items to make space for your holiday gifts. If there’s an item in your closet that you have not used in the last 6-12 months, then chances are you don’t need it.
- Plan Your Home Maintenance Activities – It’s the beginning of a new year, so you need to start planning your home maintenance and home improvement projects. Review your warranties and product manuals and look for recommended maintenance schedules. Mark your calendar to track the scheduled upkeep of your home.
- Consider Adding More Shelving – Bins and other storage containers can help you stay organized, but they need to be stored somewhere. Consider adding shelving to your garage or basement. If your garage is tall enough, then it’s a good idea to add a ceiling shelf. You can store the bins containing your holiday decor and keep them out of the way.
