Two of the most stressful parts of moving is packing and unpacking. At National Movers, we have seen it all and one thing we recommend is organization. Unless you are a fan of clutter, throwing everything in several unlabeled boxes can be a pain in the neck when unpacking. You do not have to pay $100 per hour to a professional organizer. In this article, we will go over some inexpensive home organization ideas that will help you during your move and later. If you have any specific questions or concerns, or if you would like to hire professional movers, then call National Movers. Our friendly representatives are always happy to help.
Sell, Donate, Recycle, and Reuse
Do you really need that backup hairdryer from ten years ago? What about that couch that has been sitting in the attic or basement for years? One of the first steps in organizing is getting rid of anything that is taking up space but of very little use. As you start packing or even preparing to move, you will notice some things that you need to get rid of. You can sell, donate, recycle, or reuse junk that is weighing you down.
Selling things that you do not use can churn out some quick cash. This will come in handy when you have to pay for other moving costs such as gas, packaging, and so on. Donating to charities has tax benefits but remember to confirm with a tax professional. Finally recycling and reusing is great for the environment. All of this might also free up some old containers to be repurposed in your new home. If you need new containers, then call National Movers to ask about our options.
Now that you have whittled down the pile of things to the most important and valuable, you are ready to organize. Here are some inexpensive home organization ideas to affordably declutter your area.
TOILET PAPER TUBE
Jumbles of wires, chargers, and cords are not only untidy. They are also dangerous trip hazards and choke hazards for children. Wrap each one and tuck it inside an empty toilet paper roll to keep it tangle free. Empty toilet paper tubes are also the perfect size to fit most hair bands. Snap your hair bands on the tube and store the tube in a cabinet or drawer.
Empty food jars are not only for spices and other foods. Baby food jars are great for holding paper clips, rubber bands, and other small items. Bigger jars can hold pens, pencils, crayons, markers, and so on. You can also keep your craft supplies in these jars.
You can repurpose old muffin tins or ice cube trays into jewelry containers. Decorate the tray and store your necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and rings in the small compartments. This will keep your jewelry together and at your fingertips.
