Home Organization: Lies You Tell Yourself

home organizationEver wonder why you are always looking at a cluttered home and how you can declutter better? There are some lies that most of us tell ourselves that are doing us a disservice.

It’s important when you are trying to change anything in your life that you closely examine your thoughts and feelings, you might not realize it but this is especially true when it comes to home organization.

Common lies that do us harm in terms of home storage:

LIE 1: If I pare down my wardrobe I will have nothing interesting to wear.

TRUTH: By having fewer clothes you can afford to buy better items that you can use to coordinate more exciting outfits.

 

LIE 2: If I put off my home organization and decluttering I will be more motivated to get it all done at once.

TRUTH: If you leave things to the last minute when guests are coming or you just procrastinate in general you are more likely to feel overwhelmed and never get what you want accomplished.

 

LIE 3: If I throw that item out or give it away I will be sorry I did down the road.

TRUTH: The majority of the items you keep around for a rainy day are the ones you don’t really need at all. On top of that fact, if you keep everything, when you need one specific thing chances are good you won’t be able to find it.

 

LIE 4: If I throw those papers out I will lose something important.

TRUTH: These days, with the internet and many records being kept online, bank records for example, most of the papers you have laying around aren’t necessary to keep. The one exception is if you own a business. If that’s the case, talk to your accountant and/or lawyer to find out what you need and what you don’t. It’s almost certain that at least 80 percent of what you have been keeping is unnecessary.

 

LIE 5: I can’t work on home organization until I get special shelves and organization tools and I can’t afford them right now.

TRUTH: You don’t need anything like that to stay organized. Are they nice to have? Sure, but they are far from necessary. You can browse around our blog and find hundreds, no, thousands, of home organization tips you can use to keep your home decluttered and very few of them need anything special.

Home Staging Tips For A Quick Sell

I am so excited to share an interview today that I got to do with Tori Toth, a New York City-based home staging expert! I have always found the process of selling and buying a home fascinating.

When looking online you can usually tell which homes have been staged for sale and which haven’t. My first experience with a stager occurred 3+ years ago when we sold our condo.

My realtor felt so strongly that a stager was integral to the process of selling a home that she personally paid for a stager to come to every one of her client’s homes before they put their home on the market.

I learned a lot from my stager about how to market my home to potential buyers and I’m excited to share Tori’s words of wisdom on the topic…READ MORE HERE…

How to get rid of household clutter:

Donate to local charities

Tons of charities operate thrift stores that allow you to donate anything from old dishes and clothing to kids toys and appliances.

Pass the items off to a friend

Your friends might have use for that garlic press you don’t use or that cookbook that you weren’t the biggest fan of. Just because you didn’t like it, doesn’t mean someone else won’t. The same goes for clothing that is in good condition. This is a good way to score some brownie points and declutter your home at the same time.

Consignment stores

If you have items that are worth some money but you simply don’t want them anymore, why pay to store them or look at the clutter when you can sell them? These stores often take jewelry and clothing that is in good condition. You can literally make hundreds of dollars just for making more space in your home.

Have a yard sale or garage sale

This is another fantastic way to declutter your home and save space in your Toronto storage. You don’t have to set up anything fancy, especially if it’s a garage sale. All you need is some tables.

Ebay and/or Craigslist

It only takes a few moments to list items on Ebay and Craigslist and you can find someone to buy just about anything on them. Take a bit to see what other people are selling their similar items for and just list your belongings. This is a great way to declutter your home and make a few extra bucks at the same time.
