Happy first day of spring, everybody! As you begin the process of spring cleaning this year, I would encourage you to take on an organizing project or two as well. While this may initially seem like a daunting task, I can assure you that once you get started (which is undoubtedly the most difficult step), organizing is very straightforward. If you are a neat freak like me, you may even find yourself having fun (gasp)! Check out these tips
from Modern Montana Real Estate for help getting started.
As a society, we tend to prioritize cleaning, while organizing takes a seat on the backburner. After all, it can be a time-consuming process and for most of us, the housework already seems endless. However, cleaning and organizing go hand-in-hand and that extra step can make all the difference in the look and feel of your home. Not to mention, taking the time to organize makes cleaning so much easier (for instance, it is much quicker to wipe down counters and shelves that are free of clutter)!
While you can start organizing anywhere, let me offer two simple suggestions for making the experience more enjoyable:
Spring is the ideal time to organize outdoor spaces such as your garage or shed. For most of the year, especially here in Montana, the weather is either too hot or too cold to comfortably work in these areas. Take advantage of your next beautiful spring day - grab a cool drink, add alcohol to it if you need to, get outside and organize!
On the contrary, working inside on a nice day can leave you feeling cooped up. Combat this by opening up some windows around your house to let in the fresh spring air. This will refresh both your home and your mindset!
Are you sold on organizing, but simply don't have the time and/or energy to get it done yourself? You aren't alone - life is busy. I would be happy to help you achieve your organization goals! All services are 20% off now through 03/31/2022. Contact me for a free consultation.
