today's busy life style it is very difficult to give
time to your home and keep it neat and clean. With hectic
lifestyle, work, kids today we are short of time to
actually find time to keep our house free from clutter
and tidy our rooms. We have brought for you tips that
will help you deal with this problem.
Tips for a tidier home:
you have a few minutes to spare put away five or
ten items that are not in their correct place. These
could be toys that the kids have left somewhere;
letters that need filing away or odd socks that
need putting in a drawer or magazines/newspaper
lying here and there.
Dump junk mail the moment you receive it. Deal with
other mail at least once a week filing away what
you need to keep in proper file especially for storing
the "five boxes" method. This will clear clutter
from any room or area of the house, but can look
awful while in progress. So first thing is to set
aside some time when you won't be disturbed, put
on your favourite music and start. First job is
to label the boxes - Rubbish, Give Away/Sell, Keep,
Private and Miscellaneous. You then go through everything
in the area consigning each item to one of the boxes.
Theoretically, by the time you have got rid of the
Rubbish and Give Away/Sell boxes, you should have
enough space to store the Private and put the Keep
items back in an orderly way. The Miscellaneous
box should be sealed up, stored in basement or attic
and if not needed after six months or one year,
given away unopened, so that you're not tempted
to keep the contents all over again.
ruthless. If you haven't used an item in the last
two years you are not likely to need it again. So
just dispose them of.
the job. Start dealing with one room at a time.
This way you will not feel exhausted and you will
also find time to do other things like giving yourself
yourself to items that make staying tidy easier.
Cardboard storage boxes are great for sewing and
craft items, storing files and paper items and large
toys. Plastic or fabric hanging shoe bags are perfect
for storing small toys and dolls or for hairbrushes,
clips, cosmetics and toiletries. Invest in some
of those drawer dividers that separate drawers into
a dozen little compartments - but don't fill them
and put away fifty per cent of your ornaments. This
really will save lot of your time since if you keep
it away at one place you will not waste time searching
for any particular ornament and it will also make
keep buying things at random. Stop and think, do
I really need this and have I got somewhere to keep
this? If it is essential then only buy it or else
you can live without it.
