Valentine’s Day typically consists of gifts like sweets or jewelry. But if you’re considering an alternative gift for your sweetheart this year, why not try gifting them an organized home? Here are a few tips to help you get started.
Organization can be a mammoth task, and it always helps to start by getting everything cleaned first. If you’re starting with your kitchen, for instance, you might want to make sure the oven, stovetop and other appliances and surfaces are deep cleaned before you start to tackle anything else. Not only can this alert you to cluttered areas, it can help incentivize you to keep them organized later.
Pick a Problem Area
We all have that one closet, room or corner of the house that just doesn’t seem to stay organized, no matter what we do. With the amount of stuff there, you could probably fill multiple storage rentals. If you’re unsure which area of your home is the most problematic, ask your significant other which area of the house bothers them the most. Once you have a solid idea of where the problem lies, you can start organizing without a doubt in your mind.
Tackle the Closet
One of the most easily cluttered places in your home is probably your closet. Whether you already rent storage space at a self storage company or not, it seems that this area always gets messiest the fastest. Consider planning a day with your loved one to declutter the closet together. This is especially useful when you’re purging clothing. A second opinion is always useful when determining what needs to go into winter storage, what can be donated, and what items of clothing are simply beyond repair. Building storage space, such as shelves, shoe racks and wall hooks in your closet can also be a great organizational project.
Rent a Storage Unit
When your home is just too cluttered, one of the best things you can do is rent a storage unit. Not only does this give you the added storage space you need, it also provides an opportunity for you and your loved one to make continual decisions about how to organize your home.
Say your basement is due for an upgrade, but you just don’t have the storage space you need to make room for all of the work that needs to be done. Surprising your loved one with a storage unit to kickstart the construction on your home could be one of the best Valentine’s Day gifts you’ve ever given.
Already have a storage unit? Maybe it’s time to clean that out as well. It’s recommended you visit your self storage company every now and again anyway to organize your belongings and check for damage. A cluttered storage unit might be causing your loved one stress, and giving the gift of organization could take a load off of their mind.
