It's time to clean & organize for Sumer
Summer is officially here! The kids are out of school, the pool is calling, and your home has become an epicenter of activity. As a professional organizer and space optimizer, I can help you create the perfect summer space in and around your home.
Here are 3 tips to help you take on the buzz of summer like a boss:
Summer is the perfect time to recruit your family to freshen your living spaces. Give each family member a box to fill with toys, clothes, knick-knacks, etc that they no longer use and can be donated. This will open up your home and reduce the chaos that can cause stress in a home.
Here are some quick tips to declutter your home:
Set clear goals.
Start small and tackle one area at a time.
Sort items into keep, donate, sell, or discard piles.
Follow the one-in-one-out rule for new items.
Maximize storage space with bins and organizers.
Develop daily habits to prevent clutter buildup.
Digitize important paperwork to reduce paper clutter.
Let go of sentimental items selectively.
Stay consistent by decluttering regularly.
Remember, decluttering is an ongoing process to create a more organized and peaceful living space.
Refresh your home for the summer with a splash of summer style. Revitalize your home to create a fresh feeling for the summer season. Creating spaces inside and outside that welcome the activities and gatherings of summer is a great way for everyone to connect.
Here are quick tips to improve your home with summer decor:
Embrace natural light and keep curtains open.
Add pops of summer colors through accessories.
Bring in fresh flowers and plants for a lively atmosphere.
Create a coastal vibe with beach-inspired elements.
Refresh outdoor spaces with comfortable seating and lighting.
Swap out heavy winter textiles for lightweight fabrics.
Set up an outdoor dining area for al fresco meals.
Use scented candles or diffusers with refreshing summer fragrances.
With these tips, your home will exude a vibrant and summery feel in no time.
If you're planning a summer adventure, near or far, staying organized before a trip makes planning and returning a lot easier. If you can have your home organized and cleaned before you leave, you will come home to a clean house and you're less likely to forget to pack something when you head out.
