4 Ways to Ditch the Summer Clutter

Has summer clutter taken control of your home? Fall gives everyone the perfect reason to declutter from summer and prep for the rest of the year. If you have a cluttered home, here are a few tips to help you begin your fall cleaning.

1. Start with the Closets: Closets are the easiest place to begin. You and your kids should try on every piece of clothing. Get rid of anything too small or out of style. Next, move the summer clothes to the back and your fall/winter clothes to the front. Make sure those clothes still fit; if not, they must go.

2. Lose the Summer Garage Chaos: Do you have bikes, gardening supplies, splash pads and summer sports equipment taking over your garage? Take a weekend and give your garage a fall makeover. Donate or sell old toys, bikes, and tools. Map out a storage plan to fit your summer stuff and make your winter tools accessible.

3. Freshen Up the Kitchen: Whether it's for the big game or the upcoming holiday season, fall is the start of hosting season. Take time to declutter, organize and scrub your kitchen. Get rid of the extra little things you don't use and reorganize everything in your cabinets. You might be surprised at the duplicate and unnecessary items you find.

4. Get Rid of Old Toys: ?If you have kids, you most likely have old toys shoved into a closet, drawer, or corner. If they haven't seen the light of day in a while, it's time to pass them on and put them in storage.

Use this as a guide for beginning your fall decluttering. You might be surprised to find that you're less stressed with less clutter. If you're looking for a new home with more space, fall is a great time to buy and sell. Give me a call today!
