Getting Organized in 2017
It’s hard to believe it’s already 2017!
Need some help with those New Year’s Resolutions to become organized? Are you thinking about listing your house this year, but you just can’t seem to tackle the list of to-dos around the home? Leaky faucets? Need to pressure wash the driveway?
Houselogic recently shared a few ideas that are key to becoming a little bit more organized around the house. If you follow their full list, they guarantee that you can organize your home by February 1st in less than an hour a day! Here are a few takeaways from this article that Hodnett Cooper believes will help you get your home list-ready in 2017!
Do that Project
“What about your space is making you feel uncomfortable or overwhelmed?” asks Amy Trager, a professional organizer in Chicago. Is it the paperwork disaster in your office? The pile of clothes teetering on your dresser? Or that mess that surrounds your doorway? Start with what’s annoying you, she says. One hour on that task will get your organizing engine revving.
Reassess Your Display Shelves
Shelves crammed with knickknacks, books you’ll never read, and stuff you somehow accumulated are just a waste of space. Donate books to the library, discard the junk, and arrange what’s left in a way that pleases you
Declutter Your Desk
When your workspace is swimming with collectibles, staplers, Post-its, and more, paring down can keep you focused when it’s time to hunker down
Hang a Shelf
Wall storage is so often overlooked. Find a spot in your home where a shelf would solve a problem, and hang it. Maybe it’s for some toiletries in the bathroom, or laundry supplies, or for your kid’s stuffed toys.
In addition to the above ideas, Hodnett Cooper has a full market preparation guide that our licensed REALTORS are happy to discuss with you.
