Spring cleaning is a task many of us dread each year, but, it’s something that must be done. Even after you’ve finished your spring cleaning, it’s possible that your home still feels cluttered. Continue reading for 4 tips to declutter your home this season!
Becoming Decluttered In 4 Ways
1. Winter Décor: We’ve passed the time frame when it’s still okay to have winter décor around the home, unless it serves a purpose, put it away. Our residents have the luxury to enjoy oversized closets which they can use to store their seasonal décor!2. Cut Back on the Blankets: Each year we tend to accumulate more and more blankets, maybe they were on sale, given as a gift, or it as a print you couldn’t say “no” to. Whichever the reason, consider how much they will be used during the warmer months and put a few away or find a few that haven’t been used recently and donate them!3. Collections: Whether you’re an avid book collector, records, DVDs, magnets or any other collectable, it can take up space and make your home look cluttered. DVDs or books, for example, aren’t used all the time. Consider storing some that you don’t use on a regular basis.4. Catch-All: Dressers, desks, and countertops tend to act as catch-alls for homes and the clutter can become quite unsightly. Sort through all the papers and decide what needs to stay and what can be tossed. If it doesn’t serve a purpose and isn’t essential, recycle it.
If you’ve done all of this and find that your home still feels cluttered, consider renting a spacious apartment from Stonegate! We offer one, two, and three bedroom apartments with amazing closet space that will make you feel comfortable while you’re our resident. If you desire more storage space or an enclosed space for your car, we also have heated garages with elevator service available!
