Organization Plays an Important Role in Your Spring Cleaning

spring cleaningThe easiest way to tackle spring cleaning is to make a plan and stick to it. The online resource, The Spruce, offers tips on how to spring clean and organize over a 30-day time period. This way, the process seems a bit less daunting and your spring cleaning plans may seem more achievable. Your checklist may be different than your neighbor’s checklist, so it makes sense to think about your ultimate goal for organizing your home and just get started. Fortunately, you can depend on Garage Décor and More for the products and services required to get your spring cleaning job done!

Before you begin spring cleaning. Keep the running list of what you are trying to achieve either on a master notepad or on your home computer. Borrow or buy some boxes so when you are in the process of organizing, you can distribute items to either donate or consign. When you go through the process it’s also important to repair anything you may be wanting to keep. If you don’t have time to repair during the de-cluttering process, store in a box or a pile the items and keep a running list of what you find needing a bit more “TLC”.

Spring is here. Time to switch out your clothing! If changing out your clothing each season is one of your least favorite things to do, it may be time to have Garage Décor and More redesign your closet spaces. Wouldn’t it be great to have a closet that can accommodate all of your clothing (or at least most of it)? We offer free consultations and can visit your home to see if you are currently making the most out of your existing closet space. It’s likely that one of our closet systems by Redline will easily offer more usable space and look beautiful, too.

When we visit homes, we sometimes notice that a spot for shoes in a closet is often overlooked. If you have more shoes than space, we can offer ideal solutions for your closet so that it’s easier to find each and every pair, no matter if it’s a strappy sandal or leather boot.

Clean linen closets and pantry spaces. Linen closets and pantries are used on a regular basis and are often overlooked and messy! Garage Décor and More has closet systems that work great in all rooms, home offices, laundry rooms and more. With 16 shelf and cabinet depths to choose from, we can work with your linen or pantry space and accommodate items of any size.

As with any re-organization project, it makes sense to first to get rid of or donate any items that you are not using anymore. Looking through the pantry? Throw out any food, snacks or beverages that may have expired. Some pantries are a “catch-all”, so this may take a lot of time. Make sure you know exactly what you want to be using your pantry for and that will help organize it.

Declutter your basement space. Shelves and closets downstairs, too? Don’t forget about organizing your basement spaces. It may be tough, but The Spruce article states to resist the urge to organize the entirebasement. That’s quite the undertaking! It’s too hard to do that and spring clean. That may be a chore for a different day…or series of days. If you focus on cleaning out the shelves and storage areas, throwing away the items you don’t need, you’ll be able to better determine the next steps to get organized. Is it time to update your basement shelving? We offer heavy-duty Workbench cabinets and StoreWALL organization systems. Schedule a consultation with us and we will figure out the best solution for your unique organizational needs.
