Your Organized Home Starts Here.
And it’s not going to take five years.
So you’re ready for a whole home overhaul! Good on ya! Cleaning out clutter liberates the soul, and I want that for you! But let’s be real- there are sooo many closets, drawers, nooks, and crannies that need attention. The overwhelming thought of where to begin stifles any motion forward… I think I can help!
After we built our first home and moved in, I wanted each room’s design to be completed in an instant. Jon would periodically remind me that Rome wasn’t built in a day, and he was right. We were going to have to pace ourselves. So I did what any chica with OCD tendencies would do: I created a five-year plan for styling our home!
Doesn’t it relieve a bit of mental load when you know something that desperately needs your attention is on your schedule? We do this with work projects all the time, so of course we can anticipate the same release from scheduling out our home projects as well.
Here’s a sample plan of how to use the remaining months of 2019 to tackle the goal of an organized home.
Declutter the MBR Closet. Click here to read my post about it.
Organize the Mudroom. It’s okay if you put this one off. There’s a long holiday weekend waiting for you.
Clean out the Garage. The best way to tackle this project is to empty everything out. Reassure those trying to shop your driveway display that your yard sale will take place in the near future, or perhaps they’ll find your discards at the local charity store.
You may want to hose down the interior of the garage or just sweep it out well. Wash your car too, because she’s going to look good parked in your newly organized space!
Declutter the Kitchen.
Clean out the Bedrooms. All hands on deck for this one! The first step is to ask each child to go through their clothes and bag up what they no longer wear.
Declutter the Playroom.
Organize the Home Office.
Declutter the Master Bedroom.
Organize the Entryway.
Clean out the Bathrooms.
Declutter the Living Room.
