8 Tips For Spring Organizing From The Omaha Real Estate Pros
The weather this weekend was gorgeous! When we weren’t busy talking about Omaha real estate, we were out and about doing things and checking off our to-do and honey-do lists in our own homes. We opened up the windows to let the fresh air in, and started ORGANIZING! Today on the blog, we’re sharing some of our favorite Spring Cleaning / Home Organizing tips for Spring 2018.
Tip # 1 - Find Some Music That Works For You
Because nothing is more boring than organizing or cleaning in silence! Put on some great music that gets you moving and energized.
Tip # 2 - Organize Your Shed/Garage For The Tools You’ll Need This Season
If you’re getting ready to start attacking your yard and getting it into tip-top shape, you need to make sure that you can get to the tools you will need the most. Hide those snow shovels and the snow blower away for the season. Get out your mower and gardening tools!
Tip # 3 - Create Your Own Spring Cleaning Bucket
Gather all of your most frequently used cleaning solutions and tools in one bucket for easier use. Then start attacking the dirt!
Tip # 4 - Tackle Yard Clean-Up
Getting rid of the winter debris will give your yard a much-needed facelift for spring and summer. Make sure to compost what you can, then get the rest ready for the garbage men!
Tip # 5 - Attack Those Closets
Get rid of any clothing that doesn’t fit or isn’t going to be worn again. Our basic rule of thumb: if it hasn’t been worn in a year, get rid of it! (Unless it’s a very formal outfit that you know isn’t going to get much use.)
Tip # 6 - Take A Trash Bag And Attack Clutter Piles
Scan important documents or bills to create digital copies, then pitch the paperwork. If a paper copy needs to be saved, make sure it gets filed in the right way.
Always follow one rule when it comes to clutter: If in doubt, throw it out!
Tip # 7 - Wash Those Windows
Letting natural sunlight in will not only help with your mood - it can also show you the other places in your home that may need some extra TLC!
And while you’re working on the windows, take the time to clean or dust your light fixtures, too.
Tip # 8 - Organize The Junk Drawer
...er, drawers? If junk is piling up in the drawers of your desk, kitchen, bathroom, or anywhere else, attack those drawers with gusto and get them organized!
These 8 tips that we’ve shared today aren’t an exhaustive list by any means, nor are they only meant for spring house hunters or those listing their house this spring. To keep your home “spring” clean year-round, be sure to tidy up weekly or monthly to avoid the buildup of dirt, dust, and disorganization!
