Keeping your home organized will help you save time, keep you from losing or damaging important items, and keep your home looking clean and tidy at all times. If you aren’t sure how to reach your organizational goals, resolve to do the following to get off to a good start this year. 

Get Rid of Clutter

The New Year is a good time to get rid of anything you didn’t need or use in the past year. It’s also an ideal time to go through your belongings and discard items you won’t need in the coming year. As you and your family declutter, it may be helpful to have some rules in place. Create a list of items that should be immediately added to the trash or donate piles. 

Make a Cleaning Schedule

Make a simple cleaning schedule for yourself in the coming year. Keep it realistic by only listing one or two chores or goals for your day. Doing a couple of simple cleaning tasks each day is easier than trying to transform your entire home once a week. Adapt your cleaning schedule throughout the year to suit your specific needs as you may be busier during some months than others. If you have kids, include them in your cleaning schedule. Start them off with a small task and then give them more responsibilities as time and maturity allow. Mom and son doing dishes together

Finding Lasting Storage Solutions

Now is the perfect time to find storage solutions that will help you stay organized for the year. If you struggle when getting ready in the morning, consider having a custom closet made to suit your needs. Companies such as Closet & Storage Concepts offer customized closets in just about any size, style, and shape. Creating a custom storage area can save you the time and hassle of having to continually organize your things and/or look through all your drawers and shelves for important items that got buried under other items.

Remember as you embark on the New Year that you don’t have to organize everything at once. Start with one small area of your Boston home, work on it and then move on when you’re ready. Look for daily solutions so clutter does not accumulate. As you set organizational tasks for yourself you will be surprised at how easy it is to not only organize your home but also keep it looking clean and tidy.
