It's starting to feel like it's getting cold out here in Mainland Vancouver. Are you getting ready to swap your summer clothing to sweaters, jackets and rain boots? Well, this could very well be a great time for you to declutter your home. If you are planning to declutter your space and your closet, these important tips could give you a head-start!
Do more with less
It's a great start to ask these questions: “Why do I want this? Will I use this? Do I still like this?” Let's answer these questions honesty and start piling up the things that you haven't used for years. Find a local charity, and get them a new home! Now that you have the essentials only in your home, you're more likely to use those things.
Think about your space
Not everyone has a space for a giant drawer but everyone needs some sort of storage. Browse through Ikea catalogue and see how you can make your small space work with the furnitures. If you have kiddos, choose wisely your furniture and think of ways to help them help you. What we mean is this, if you plan to have your kiddos help you with cleaning their mess, don't have furnitures with drawers that are too high for them. Opt for something like Ikea trofast so the kids can help you clean the mess, ofcourse if or when they are willing to do that.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
