Nikki Boyd gives us tips on how to transform our spaces, declutter and turn our homes into places we are proud to share with friends and family.
Most of us have spent a lot more time in our homes this past year because of the coronavirus. A lot of folks took the opportunity of more time at home to work on their hobbies or try new ones.
What began as a few weeks, with fun activities such as baking and doing puzzles, became months of being at home seeing all of the stuff that my family and I have accumulated over the past years.
Do I really need all of that stuff? Do I even want it anymore? I decided with my extra time at home I would keep myself occupied with deciding what to keep, donate or toss out of my various possessions.
It actually felt good to purge my various items, from DVDs that I will never watch again to clothes I could never see myself wearing. But I still needed to do more.
I needed to organize the items that I’ve decided to keep so they don’t just look like clutter. I started small, just working on the items in one drawer. When I was done, the drawer was organized and I felt a sense of accomplishment.
I’m not sure how to organize all of my things so I’m going to check out some of these awesome materials from the Library to get some new ideas. If you are interested in getting organized as well, these titles and more are available for you to explore!
