They say that a lot can be said about a person based on their personal space. How organized or messy your home is can give your visitors a glimpse into your lifestyle and personality. Having a clean and tidy home also contributes to your well-being and how you view your day-to-day life. So whether you always receive visitors at home or not, it’s important to keep every room of your house clean and organized.
Of course, no one really enjoys doing household chores. It’s time-consuming, tiring, and stressful. This is why many of us put off housework for days and weeks, and end up having a lot more to deal with than before. We have gathered a few tips on how to organize your house the easy way, no matter how messy it might be right now. All you need to do is find an affordable self-storage in Montreal, and use it to temporarily store the things you will have collected in the process of cleaning. Are you ready? Let’s get started!
Collect excess clutter
The living room and the bedroom are the rooms that you most frequent, so chances are, there will be a lot of excess clutter that has accumulated over time. To be able to effectively clean your house, you should clear it of clutter first. Get a basket or a box and collect papers, letters, magazines, and old newspapers. Keep them in the box and store them temporarily in your self-storage unit.
Forget sentimental value
You don’t have to keep something in your house just because it has sentimental value. Personal letters, old photos, and ruined objects that you still refuse to get rid of because of emotional attachment need not be thrown in the garbage. You can always store them in the self-storage unit so they’re not in your house contributing to the mess.
Create small storage areas in your house
For your important files and other items that need to stay, you can simply find a small storage space for them like a drawer, where you can easily reach for them when you need them.
Use organization tools
Small tools like S-hooks can go a long way in the kitchen. They may be small, but these hooks will keep your utensils, pots, pans, and other kitchenware organized and your kitchen clean.
If it can be done under 5 minutes, do it
Don’t put off putting your soiled clothes in the laundry bin or placing your shoes in the rack for later when you can do it now. It’s always better to constantly try to keep the house clutter-free instead of letting a whole month’s worth of disarray take over your home before you take action.
