Moving can take a lot out of you. The packing, the unpacking and everything that comes with it. But when it’s finally over and everything is set up, it’s a wonderful feeling. Your home is uncluttered and clean. You might think it can’t possibly stay that way, but it can!
Advantages of Small Organizational Changes
If your home is typically a little messy, you can’t expect your new, neat and tidy home to stay that way. Rather than trying to keep it clean for top to bottom, try adopting simple habits first. For example, start by making sure the dinner dishes are taken care of before sitting down to relax. Eventually, you can make other changes and realize that a clean and organized home is more motivating than ever.
Things to Do Before Moving into a New House
Making your bed as soon as you wake up is a great way to feel more organized and it only takes a few minutes. Your bedroom will feel like a sanctuary at the end of a long day, making you feel more relaxed and inspired to keep it that way.
Leave Shoes Outside the Front Door
Keeping your home clean can start at the front door. Leave your shoes there and you’ll soon see that you’ll have less dirt throughout your home. If your family loves shoes, make sure there’s enough storage. You can place a padded bench with a lid at the entrance or design a built-in shoe closet.
Organizing & Decluttering Before Moving
Many Americans have clutter problems. Clutter makes your space smaller, stuffier and more overwhelming. Worse than that, it’s leaving less money in your wallet. Put more money in your wallet by selling off items you don’t need anymore. The best way to declutter your home is to start with one room before moving on to the next. Sell or donate any items you have not used in the last year.
Clean as You Go
Don’t ignore cluttered areas in your home. Rather than passing by a blanket on the floor or magazines tossed on the coffee table, pick the blanket up and tidy the magazines. Dealing with clutter right away saves you the trouble of having to deal with it later- after it’s piled up.
Think About What You’re Breathing
When homeowners clean, they don’t think too much about the quality of the indoor air. All that dusting, mopping, scrubbing and vacuuming can pose a serious problem for your health and the general atmosphere in your home. Thankfully, there are ways to mitigate or eliminate this problem. The HVAC system in your home needs to be effective and efficient. If you feel like your home can benefit from some fresh air, you should have a professional inspect your system to make sure it’s working properly.
