Storage Corner | November 1, 2023 @ 12:00 AM

Organizing your house during the summer is a great idea! You can also get rid of some excess stuff that has accumulated over the school year by clearing out your space.

Throughout this blog post, we will be sharing with you all the best tips and a summer decluttering checklist so that you can get started now!

Summer Organizing: what should I do? Here are some suggestions to begin with. You can start small. Think of the following:

  • Is there a toy that your kids no longer play with?
  • A piece of clothing that is no longer in style or fits properly
  • The electronics are outdated and need to be replaced
  • There are expired foods in the pantry that need to be disposed of
  • Books and magazines from your school days and old magazines

Step 1. Identify your areas to organize and set a goal. What's the most you want to throw out? You could aim for about 20% purging.

Step 2. Put those plastic bins to good use in creating a sorting system! Sort your things into these three categories while you are going through them: "Store," "Donate," and "Trash."

Step 3. Getting organized is a process that takes one step at a time. You'll be surprised how much can be accomplished if you spend 15-30 minutes each day decluttering!

Step 4. Defining a deadline for yourself is the perfect way to motivate yourself to work on this. Setting a timeline for your goals can be helpful, no matter if it's the end of summer break or before any guests arrive.
