If you look around your home, attic, basement or garage and feel overwhelmed by the disorganization of everything or the thought that you have no idea what exactly sits inside of those boxes that are on the shelves, you have yourself a clutter problem. Clutter can make life difficult if you are attempting a thorough spring cleaning, looking for a specific item or trying to find additional storage space.
De-Cluttering Kids Rooms
U.S. consumers purchase 40% of the world’s toys but only have 3% of the world’s children. There are a couple of good places in your home to start when the decision is made to de-clutter and the first is your children’s toy bin or trunk! Every year brings yet another set of birthdays, maybe a fun reward for special accomplishments and of course there is always the huge influx of toys at Christmas time. A significant amount of toys and games are accumulated over just one year of gift giving. How often do we clean out and trim down our toy inventory? Probably not every year, so the buildup and congestion of all these gifts can grow to become a giant filled bin in your child’s closet or bedroom. Most of the time, you will discover that your children only have a handful of toys or games that they enjoy playing with. De-cluttering your kid’s toy supply can free up a surprisingly large amount of space, giving your home a more open and clean feeling or even giving you storage space for things that you still actually use.
Clearing out the Garage
Another area of your home to re-evaluate is your garage space. The U.S Department of Energy has reported that only 32% of American’s with a two-car garage have room to only park one car in there! There may be necessary items we store in our garage, but only use once a year, such as holiday decorations, camping equipment or sporting equipment. Normally the boxes that sit on our garage shelves have not been opened for years and we have no idea what they contain. Often times you’ll find most of it is old out dated documents that you no longer need. The majority of many boxes can be reduced and combined with others, allowing more shelf space and potentially an actual parking space. Old and broken furniture, tools and bicycles are sometimes difficult for people to part with, but once the clutter is gone, you will be thrilled with the clean and organized look of your garage.
