Organizing for a Fresh Start

April 25, 2024

When you’re looking for a fresh start, de-cluttering your home is a great place to start.

Whether your fresh start includes starting to to get in shape, eat healthier, or even stay on budget, it’s going to be much easier to accomplish those things if your home is neat and tidy. And when you want tips for better organization, Hamptons Organizers is your go-to expert!

Here are some tips for better organization, by room of your home:

Better Organization By Room

1. Bathroom

Ditch old makeup and toiletries. Most toiletries have a shelf life not longer than 18 months so if you don’t remember how long you have had something it is probably past its expiration date.

2. Kitchen

Chuck the plasticware that has no lid. You really won’t ever find the missing match.

Additionally, inspect plates and glasses for chips. Why wait until they completely break?

3. Bedroom

Free up space in your closet or dressers by parting ways with the clothes that no longer fit or those you simply don’t like anymore. Give away gently-used items to thrift shops (there are many on the East End).

Also, don’t forget about those lonely socks. The partner is likely gone forever. Time to give it up.

4. Home Office

Time to cut the cord with old chargers and cables, and give dried up pens and markers the boot.

5. Garage

Old, dried up paint can be hard to get rid of, but at least pile it together and look out for your local STOP day when recycling centers allow residents to drop off household waste, like paints, stains, varnishes and more. Broken sports equipment needs to go too.

6. All Other Rooms

Don’t forget to toss old batteries, old newspapers and magazines. These can pile up quickly!
