-3 Steps to Organize Your Home-
One of the most popular New Year’s resolutions is to get organized, which is why it should come as no surprise that January is National Get Organized Month. When it comes to getting your life in order – the best place to start is to organize your home.
Organizing your Tampa Bay area home can help create a calm and relaxing atmosphere. As real estate experts, we can attest that well maintained and organized homes are also much more attractive to homebuyers than a home in disarray.
Organize Your Home for 2021
Whether you are wanting to declutter your space for a peaceful New Year, or you are preparing to sell your home in 2021, here are some ways to celebrate National Get Organized Month.
- Step 1: DISCARD CLUTTER by getting rid of any items that you have not used in several months or years. For example, when was the last time you used that waffle iron? Are you hanging on to old clothing items that do not fit? Do you really need to keep those old sheet sets? Browse your home for unused items and ask yourself those types of questions. Chances are you will end up with a wonderful load of items to donate to one of Tampa Bay’s local charities, which are now in desperate need of donations.
- Step 2: GET CREATIVE with organizing items around your home by adding hooks, shelves, or dividers to keep everything in an accessible place. Don’t just lean your mops and brooms against a closet wall. Add hooks to hang them up on the wall, thus, adding more floor storage areas in your closets. If you have closets overflowing with photos or VHS tapes, now would be the time to convert those into digital formats to free up your precious space. Save the digital files for fun and easy viewing on your smart devices, and then give the printed copies to family members.
- Step 3: SET A SCHEDULE for large organizational projects around your home. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and you will also need more than one day to get your home in tip-top shape. The schedule could include monthly or weekend-warrior goals for getting projects completed. Your projects might include a garage-cleanout day, deep cleanings, a closet reorganizing weekend, a kitchen makeover, or even a garage sale. If you plan to sell your home in 2021, ask our real estate team for a list of specific updates and ROI improvement projects you could do to increase value or attract buyers.
