How to Organize Your Home During Spring Cleaning



Spring is finally here, and what better time to freshen up our homes than with some good old spring cleaning? It's a chance to declutter, reorganize, and give our living spaces a much-needed refresh. Follow along with us this month to learn how to organize those hard-to-tackle areas in your home.


One of the best ways to start is by creating a plan of action. Make a list of all the rooms and areas in your home that need attention, and set aside specific days or weekends to tackle each one.


You will see a common theme in any organization project. There are typically three clear steps. Declutter, reorganize and create a system. Separating a large project into smaller steps removes the overwhelming dread of completing the project.


When decluttering, ask yourself if you need or love each item in your home. If not, consider donating, selling, or tossing it. Remember, the goal is to create a more peaceful and organized atmosphere, so be ruthless in your decision-making.


After decluttering, it's time to reorganize. Invest in storage solutions such as bins, baskets, and shelving units to help keep things in place and out of sight. YellowGate Designs posts our favorite organizers here! If you don't know where to start when it comes to reorganizing call us to help you organize your space!


The last step is to create a system to keep your space organized. Creating a system is the most important step because it keeps you from reorganizing again in a few months. Your system should correlate with your living habits to keep your daily routine simple. For example, if you are someone who leaves their shoes by the door, keep a basket or shelf by the door to organize them. The system you put in place is, once a month remove any shoes you no longer are reaching for every day to keep this area designated for shoes used daily. If you need help creating systems that work for you and your family call YellowGate Designs to learn from our professional organizers!


Don't forget to tackle those forgotten spaces, such as closets, pantries, and garages. These areas can quickly become dumping grounds for things we no longer use or need. Take the time to go through them, organizing and cleaning as you go. You'll be amazed at how much space you can reclaim.

Spring cleaning can be a daunting task, but with a plan in place and some motivation, you'll be amazed at how much you can accomplish. Remember, a clutter-free and organized home can lead to a happier and more peaceful living environment. Happy cleaning!
