As we get ready to ring in the New Year, you may be thinking about how you can make this coming year better than the one coming to an end. Resolutions are great things to have, but they often fizzle out after the first couple weeks or months. Setting realistic goals for your home and figuring out how to stick to them is something many homeowners in the Las Vegas and Henderson areas struggle with. As your local storage and organization experts, Closet & Storage Concepts of Nevada has come up with a list of some New Year’s resolutions to help you maintain a more organized home in 2018.
From papers and receipts to clothing and trinkets, clutter comes in many forms. It’s one of the biggest factors that keep a home from maintaining an organized state. This year, make it a point to do what you can to avoid bringing more clutter into your home. Keep on top of your mail and other documents. File away important things you need, and immediately dispose of or recycle what you don’t. Letting things accumulate is a quick way to collect clutter. Another way to prevent clutter is to avoid taking free things at events. It can be tempting to grab one of those stickers or key chains from the free table at the game or festival, but before you know it, you end up with a junk drawer full of things you don’t use.
Clean Out Your Closet
Maybe you’ve been putting this off for a long time. Doing a full closet cleanout isn’t always fun, but it’s always worth it after you’re done. Getting rid of things you don’t like or wear anymore can feel like a weight has been lifted from your bedroom. When purging your closet, separate your things into three different piles. If there are clothes in good condition but you just don’t want them anymore, donate them to a local charity. Things that are too worn to pass on should go in the throw-out pile. The third pile is for things you want to keep. It can be hard to part with various piece of your wardrobe, but make a point to be smart about what you keep. If there’s anything you haven’t worn in the past year, let it go. Once you’ve cleaned out your closet, the trick is to maintain its organization. A good trick to avoid accumulating more clutter in your closet is to use the “one in one out” rule. If you buy a new piece of clothing, get rid of an existing one.
