  1. Schedule A Declutter Day

There’s no doubt about it – life can get busy. Between personal endeavors, work, school, kids, family, and everything in between, it can be hard to find time to clean. However, if you make it a part of your schedule, it can seem much more manageable. Start by setting aside one day on your calendar per month that you dedicate time to organizing, cleaning, and decluttering. Plus, knowing ahead of time allows you to plan or buy supplies.


  1. Buy Furniture That Doubles As Storage

A great way to save and create space in your home is by choosing furniture that also doubles as storage. There are so many unique and affordable options including ottomans that also serve as a trunk, coffee tables with storage compartments, or bed frames with pull-out drawers. You can hide and store seasonal clothing or decor, blankets, and books – it’s ideal for living in smaller spaces or you have a lot of belongings.


  1. Use Over-The-Door Hangers For Shoes, Cleaning Supplies, And Jackets To Make The Most Of Every Inch Of Space

Having clutter in your home can cause stress and anxiety – even if you don’t realize it. Make it a habit of keeping your countertops clear and create extra cabinet space by utilizing vertical space. With “things” out of sight, it automatically creates peace of mind and a sense of calm when you walk into the room. To do this, take advantage of over-the-door hangers to organize your shoes, cleaning supplies, beauty supplies, and anything else that you need at an arm’s reach.


  1. Use A Roll-Up Drying Rack Over Sink To Save Kitchen Counter Space

Counter space in the kitchen is coveted real estate and it can quickly become cluttered and overtaken by dishes, especially if you air-dry them. Instead of having wet dishes strewn about the kitchen after washing them, invest in a roll-up drying rack that sits over the sink, allowing the excess water to drip. Then, once the dishes are dry, simply roll up the rack and store it.


  1. Donate The Clothes You Don’t Wear Regularly

Make it a rule of thumb for your dresser and closet – if you haven’t worn it or used it in a year, get rid of it. It’s easy to hold onto clothing or items because of sentimental reasons or some other grounds. However, let’s face it, when is the last time you actually wore that skirt, jacket, or pair of pants? Instead of letting those things take up space in your closet or drawer, why not donate them to someone who could put them to good use?


Take pride in where you live and where you call home. By utilizing these simple tips, you’ll have an organized, decluttered, and beautiful apartment in no time. Stop by Excelsior and Grand today to view our spacious and modern floor plans.
