Over the winter, we all collect gifts vis a vis Christmas and Valentine’s Day, we buy new dishes for hosting people during the holidays and we inevitably end up with a cluttered house. Spring is here to save you from your own disorganization. We want to save you from the side eye your mom will give when she doesn’t see an immaculate house upon her next visit. Take the tips below and start some spring cleaning!
Organize your closet: No matter the budget you have, there are so many options for updating your closet. Install some shelves, add a shoe organizer or even purchase item specific hangers. As BSBs we all have more clothes than we need but you don’t have to get rid of them, just organize them even if you never wear them 🙂
Rearrange your Dishes: Spring time is hosting time in the South. The weather is warmer and you will have more guests so it is time to get your dishware in order! Start by labeling your cabinets and putting assigned places for each item. Maybe you assign them by collection or maybe by their purpose, no matter what you choose, make sure the system would make your mom proud.
Put a storage unit in your garage: Garages are often times not filled with cars, mine included. It is not bad to use your garage for storage but don’t let the storage take over your garage. Install a bright red storage shelf in your close to organize all of those tools, cleaning products and leftover paint cans.
Install a Craft Organizer: For those BSBs who are addicted to Pinterest and keep compiling more and more DIY tools but don’t want to look like a hoarder, the Craft Organizer is the gift of life. If you have more space, you can install a full on craft desk and if you are limited on room, try a rolling craft shelf, maybe even one that can fit under a bed for really small spaces.
Update Your File Cabinet: Although most things are available online, many things such as real estate, taxes and identification tools are still good to have hard copies of. Spring is the perfect time to buy a new file cabinet and organize all those papers you have collected over the past year or so.
