Why do some people think organizing their home is for a must-do only in the spring? With the holiday season approaching, people across the country are preparing their homes for visiting family, holiday parties and cold weather hibernation. All of this makes fall the perfect time to declutter and organize one’s home.
The first step is to purge all the things that aren’t needed, wanted or used anymore – there is no need to organize what you don’t have! For the items that need to stay, think about creating new storage under stairwells or replacing a bed’s box spring with drawers or a lift-up mattress. Also, it is important to utilize your home’s vertical space – consider floor-to-ceiling shelving or peg boards to hang pots and pans. Anything stored on the walls frees up space in the cupboards!
