One of the tricks to having a perfectly clean home before the holidays is starting and maintaining an organized home right now. Organization is one of the many keys to keeping your home clean throughout the year, but it seems to become even more important during the holidays. As you pull out decorations and gifts, reassessing your organization throughout your home is a great way to make sure that everything remains clean throughout the entire year.
After pulling out boxes of decorations from your home, now is the perfect time to reassess your home organization before having to put back your holiday decor. Nothing makes your home feel cleaner than having it properly organized. Here are a few ways that you can keep it organized throughout the entire year before putting everything away.
- Keep Your Kitchen Pantry Organized: During the holiday season, many of us spend time cooking for our family and friends. Taking this opportunity to clean a few things out and reorganize your kitchen will be a great stress reliever and a good step to keeping your kitchen clean throughout the entire year to come. Try organizing your kitchen pantry first before tackling the rest of the kitchen.
- Organize Your Storage Areas: Now that your decorations are out, it’s the perfect time to reorganize your storage areas. Try erecting shelves in your garage, basement, or attic where you store your holiday decorations. Then separate your decorations into Rubbermaid boxes by holiday. Masking tape works great for labeling boxes so that you can reuse them for reorganization in the future.
