One Truth about your home is clear: clutter can silently sneak up on you. You may clean your home spotless, but before you know it, your space can magically and mysteriously become chaotic and disorganized once again.
Unfortunately, organizing isn’t a one-and-done situation — you have to clean and clear your home frequently to keep it neat and tidy.
This can be particularly important around holidays when family comes for a visit or stays for an extended period of time.
Whether you’re in the weeds of spring cleaning, planning for a change of the seasons, preparing for the holidays, or just want to get a jump start on your New Year’s resolutions, now is the perfect time to consider your “plan of attack.”
Check back each day this week to reveal 7 room-by-room tips to get your space organized, from the front door to the attic!
The Entry Way
The entry way, foyer, mudroom — whatever you claim as the main point of entry for your home — is one of the most difficult places to keep clean and organized for your family and visitors.
Follow these organization tips for this area of your home:
- Strive to keep this space as minimalistic as possible. Less is always more here.
- Consider your family’s daily routines. If there’s something like an umbrella stand that isn’t used frequently, get rid of it or move it to a different space.
- If you have anything out of season, it’s time to put it away so they're not cluttering the space.
- Move Spring sweaters to a closet shelf, dresser drawer, or under-bed storage bin.
- Tuck away backpacks when the school year has ended. Packing them into travel luggage is a great way to save space.
- Move decorations to storage after the holidays - you won't be needing them for another year!
Repeat these organization tips each season to make sure this front part of your home stays decluttered and up-to-date.
