Thanks to COVID, many of us are spending a lot more time with our families and learning to share our space for the majority of the day instead of just during morning and evening mealtimes. One way to make your home feel less cluttered and cramped is to organize your home to help free up more room for household members. Check out our top ideas below to get you started!
Our garages rarely hold just our vehicles. Oftentimes, we use this convenient space to hold onto the remnants of unfinished projects we never got around to finishing, sporting equipment, and other belongings just shoved away in a corner. Freeing up this space can open a much-need area for other activities like a small workout area or a safe zone for your child’s school science project.
Since this part of a home tends to get very dirty, dusty, and have a lot of leftover stuff we don’t need anymore, you may need a dumpster to break free from all the extra things you’ve been holding onto all these years.
Like many parents, you may not only have to work from your home, but your children may be learning from there, as well! This requires a careful balance between your working space and that of where your children will be doing their homework, testing, and studying. Using vertical space to create storage areas will also help take advantage of areas with limited availability for expansion. Consider minimizing what is stored on your desk by using wall pockets for filing.
You may have discovered very quickly how much easier it is if everyone can easily find what food items they want without having to come and ask you all day. Reorganizing your pantry to clearly display the more popular snack items versus meal prep staples is a step in the right direction to make this area more family-friendly.
You should also double-check the expiration dates on boxes and cans. Be sure to inspect hard to reach areas for any forgotten food item from a while ago that is likely not fresh or safe to eat anymore. Finally, be sure to rotate your food stores by keeping anything near its expiration date to the front so that they get used first.
While working from home has its perks, it can still leave you feeling isolated or cramped up in your home a lot. One way to encourage a more positive mental state is to keep shared living spaces clutter-free and rearrange the layout to keep it feeling fresh to your senses. When doing this, also think about what activities you and your family could do together in these areas, like a game night or yoga practice.
You may decide it’s time to go ahead and invest in that new sofa set or get rid of excess furniture, rugs, and electronics. Make sure to schedule a compact dumpster to make it easy to haul away.
From games and movies to books and toys, the entertainment items your family relies on can pile up fast. Create a better way to sort these items while rediscovering some that you may have forgotten.
