New Year... New Decade... New Resolutions/Tips For An Organized Home

Real Estate Agent with Front Gate Real Estate Broker 11085

Hello 2020! I'm not much for New Years Resolutions, but if I were, an item high on my list would be to declutter. Real estate contributor Nina Hollander shared this fantastic post about decluttering in the new decade and I found it important enough to share with you. I hope her lists are helpful for you; I'm sure they will be useful to me.

New Year... New Decade... New Resolutions/Tips For A More Organized Home In 2020


If you're like me... you know how it feels when there's too much clutter in your home... it feels like your brain is cluttered.  Whenever I clean out my closets, pantry, office, storage room, etc. I end up feeling much lighter mentally and my energy level soars. (I also feel five pounds lighter!) And what could be better than starting off a new decade with some serious decluttering?

No doubt for many homeowners the process of decluttering and throwing things out can be challenging, both in terms of making the time to do so and often just in terms of throwing something out. And many homeowners don't do it until they get ready to sell their homes. But decluttering and organizing isn't only for when you are getting ready to sell your home. (But if you do decide to sell your home in 2020, think how much futher ahead you'll be by starting to organize now!)

A lot of great lists. You must have sent this to my husband! He cleaned out the junk drawer yesterday (to my dismay) and worked on declutterign his closet this morning!

I have plans to declutter a few things, but I spent yesterday just relaxing, putting away Christmas decorations and cooking some meals for the freezer. Maybe today I'll get a little more motivated!
