Live Like You’re Moving Next Month
The optimal way to live in your space is as though you will be moving soon. In other words, everything you have in your cabinets, drawers and closets is exactly what you want and currently use. Does this hold true for you? If not, here are some tips to help streamline and simplify:
Storage Space: Are your closets, basement, attic and/or other storage areas bursting at the seams? When was the last time you did a thorough once-over? Seize the moment—pretend you’re moving and get started now.
Paper: Are you drowning in a sea of papers? If you were to move next month, how much would you purge? While the weather is still cool, toss them in the fire—it’s quicker than shredding!
Kid Chaos: Before summer break begins, pare down and simplify what the kids are and are not using. Get outgrown clothes, equipment and toys removed from closets and play space. Make room for the incoming, there will always be more to add while the kids are around!
Cluttered Kitchen: Your kitchen should operate like a well-oiled machine. With items constantly coming and going, make every inch of space organized and efficient. This will help make meal planning and prep easier, allowing for more enjoyable time around the table.
Mudroom Mayhem: If you have a mudroom or entryway that gets clogged up with shoes, coats, bags and backpacks, consider performing a purge to make space for the coming season. Get winter out and summer in.
