How Can Being Organized Change Your Life?

Are you longing to be an organized person? For some, home organizing comes naturally. But don’t worry. It’s a skill that you can learn. You just need to be motivated. One good way to spark your interest is to think about its many benefits.

Benefits of Home Organizing

Reduce Stress

You will feel less stressed if your home is not cluttered. A study revealed that individuals who live in a cluttered house are prone to depression and stress. Those who describe their home as very chaotic or not fun were more at risk of experiencing high cortisol levels, depression, and fatigue. Meanwhile, those who describe their homes as tidy, restorative, and restful had lower stress levels.

Boost Productivity

If you feel depressed or stressed, it also follows that you can’t focus on anything. When you are in a disorganized setting, your brain will also get distracted. This lack of concentration means you take longer to accomplish your tasks. By improving your skills in organizing your home, you also boost your efficiency in completing your tasks.

Downsizing Tips: How To Get Rid of Clutter?

Everyone knows that clutter needs to go but it’s always easier to leave the task of decluttering for another day. If you are moving to a new home, then now is the perfect time to get this done.

Some people think that downsizing is only for retirees. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Even those with children in college or if their adult children have settled into their new lives may consider downsizing.

Deal With Easier Stuff First

Getting rid of clutter can be an overwhelming task and that’s one of the many reasons why many homeowners put off this task. So, to help you get started, you should deal with the things that you can easily part with.

  1. Clothes – get rid of all those that no longer fit you, have not worn in years, or have stains on them.
  2. Paper – get rid of paper clutter like manuals, extra copies, envelopes, or similar items that you no longer use.
  3. Duplicates – Get rid of all the duplicates. Do you have 10 mugs in a house of 2? Do you have 5 black shirts when you only use 2 regularly?
  4. Books – donate, sell, or give some of the books that you own.
  5. Movies and Music – they’re most likely part of the service that you are already subscribed to so there’s no need to keep old music or movie tapes, CDs, or DVDs.

Tips To Declutter and Downsize Your Home

One important thing when it comes to downsizing is to get rid of the things you don’t need in your life. It may seem quite simple but it’s a cumbersome process. You need thoughtful consideration and time. So, if you don’t have that much time or if you are not considering the consequences, you will wind up committing mistakes. You need to be smart when decluttering and downsizing.

Are Your Moving? Downsize The Big Stuff.

If you are moving to a smaller home, there’s no reason for you to bring too much stuff. Hauling big furniture will cost you a lot of money and if you have no place to put it in your new house, you’ll end up paying for a storage unit, which means extra cost. Check the floor plan of your new home. You can also do a walk through using a tape measure so you’ll get a feel of where you can place your sofas, chairs, and tables. You should make these decisions before moving. It will save you money and time.

Downsizing Guide For Seniors

Home Staging

Putting your house on the market is among of the most confusing and stressful events you can face. Especially when you realize that homebuyers aren’t seeing your house; they’re seeing your house.  A homebuyer’s critical eye could be a little offsetting.  Okay, let’s face it… a lot offsetting.  But, remember one thing; you are not alone! Yes, the process can be intimidating, but we’re here to help with the home staging.

 

Reality vs The Dream

 

The first thing to know is that we all live in a house that is much different than the vision of perfection a buyer has when they go house hunting.  Homebuyers are meticulous and have visions of absolute perfection.  These same homebuyers may live with life’s clutter in their own house, but when they go shopping for a new house, they expect neat, tidy, and absolutely uncluttered.

 

However, the truth is that we have hectic and busy lives and we live in our home.  It’s hard to separate our house from our daily life. We wind up with shoe piles in the halls, laundry baskets always perched at the bottom of your home’s stairs, and small appliances lining our kitchen counter-tops like little culinary soldiers. Is this so wrong?  The awful truth is, yes. When you are staging your home to sell, clutter is always a deal-breaker.

 

In order to make your house as salable and appealing as possible, you need to match the buyer’s dream, and a clean slate is the only way a buyer can see their dream.  To you, the seller, this may mean some big changes. So, where do you start?  By learning more about what a buyer wants.

 

To get a sense of just how far apart a buyer’s dream is from your reality, visit a model home or two. Pick a few new home communities and look at the models. Go to open houses in communities where houses are selling.

 

Take a notepad with you.  When you get out of your car, jot down your first impressions:

 

  • What struck you about this house the moment you drove up and got out of the car?
  • Was it the clean driveway?
  • The sparkling windows?
  • The flower beds?
  • Perhaps it was something distracting, like a broken light fixture.

 

Whatever it was, jot it down, good or bad.

 

Now walk in the front door and, again, write down your first thoughts:

 

  • Were you impressed by how spacious the rooms appear?
  • Did you notice how all the rooms are so bright and sunny?
  • Maybe the clean lines and tasteful decor were appealing.

 

Maybe you can even imagine yourself living there!  Does it feel like you just walked into the pages of a home decorating magazine, or are you trying to find a bare spot somewhere, anywhere, to set your purse?

 

Did something just click?  When you look around as a buyer, what impresses you, and what distresses you?  That’s exactly what you need to know when staging your house for sale. Knowledge is power and knowing what a buyer is looking for is exactly what it takes to sell your house.

 

Brunswick Organizing Solutions  can assist you with removing the clutter from your home and getting it ready for sale.  You don’t need an interior designer and lots of money to make your home appealing to a potential buyers.
