Every time when the year is nearing the end, time passes rather quickly. We go from Halloween and before we even know it, we are at Thanksgiving, and then boom, Christmas! All happening on the brink of an eye. I guess we can call it an ‘onslaught of festivity’ which sometimes finds us totally unprepared. So, what can you do to be well prepared? Ok, there are so many things to prepare, but one of the most important is organizing your home with a good old-fashioned de-cluttering. Because let’s be honest, it will be far more relaxing spending your holiday at home without too much clutter hanging around.
Living areas – let’s start with the living room; would you like your living area to resemble an over-the-top festive extravaganza come the holiday season? Well, you will need to make some room. Maybe you can begin by clearing your bookshelves, removing everything that really doesn’t serve a purpose, plus everything else that might have been lying around in the living room and is not necessary.
Kitchen and pantry cupboards – let’s face it, no matter how everyone decides to celebrate the festive season, there is one thing that common and doesn’t change; food. So, you need to clear your pantry – by using what you have in there before buying anything new, and also checking the expiration date on the canned foods as well as other staples. This will of course help you create some space for your festive delicacies. As for your kitchen, get rid of all the unnecessary items, because the less you own, the less stressful it will be when you decide to clean.
Clothing – you know, the festive season is a great time to review your closet. You need to ensure that you love everything that’s in there. If there is something you haven’t worn for a long time, and are not intending to wear it, get rid of it. I know you may find it tough to do this but trust me, it will be much easier to wear your favorite pieces when the closet isn’t filled with unworn impulse buys that drown them out. Do the same for your kids; if there is anything that they have outgrown, or don’t wear, get rid of it! You will be surprised by the amount of space you will free up.
