Thoughts On Getting Your Home in Order

Its always a challenge to get your home in order. This is even more important when you are getting ready to list your home for sale. The last thing you want is for potential buyers to feel is claustrophobic as they wander through the house. Marie Kondo, of YouTube and Netflix fame has some very simple solutions. She suggests focusing on one group of items at a time. Whether books, clothing, or toys she suggests gathering each category separately. So for instance once you have all the books from your home in one place you look at each book and decide whether it makes you joyful. If it doesn’t it’s time to say goodbye.

The old adage “less is more” is particularly relevant when paring down. Wendy Silberstein founder of the Aesthetic Organizer in New York has an excellent suggestion. The one-in, one-out rule which says for every new item you bring in to your home one item gets donated or recycled.

Home organization is always a challenge in our busy lives, but it is especially challenging for those living with children or elderly parents. Units that take advantage of unused vertical wallspace can help a home filled with toys or medical paraphernalia. Everything should have a place to be put away.

Whether you are getting ready to sell your home and want to present it at its best or you just want a calmer more peaceful environment its always a good thing to try and get your home in order.
