Organize Your Basement During The Hot Days Of Summer
Is your basement filled with clutter? The hot days of summer are the perfect time to get down into your cool basement and organize. Don’t get overwhelmed by a basement filled with clutter, you’ve got to start somewhere. Make a plan: If you don’t start with a plan, you may get down into that basement and just push piles from one place to another. How much of grandmother’s furniture are you going to save? How long have you been saving all that stuff for the upcoming yard sale you never had? Do you get lost in a sea of keepsakes and mementos? Remember, if you keep too much, you can’t find what’s truly important. Make some executive decisions about how much you can realistically keep.
Weed out: When the space is stuffed, the only way to make improvements is to eliminate. Get rid of what you can, then organize and contain the rest. First determine what you can toss, then decide if you want to sell online or donate to a family member, friend or charitable organization.
Organize: Once you’ve eliminated what you don’t need in the space, it’s time to organize. Sort and place like items together. Plastic bins with lids and labels are perfect for organizing the stuff you want to keep in your basement. Make sure you don’t go out and buy the bins first, you’ll end up with container clutter!
