Every once in a while, I sit and dream about what it would be like to have one of those big, spacious, clean bedrooms like in the HGTV Dream Home. In reality, my bedroom is a lot smaller, not as nicely furnished, and can get cluttered from time to time. While I can't increase the size of your room, the following list will get you a lot closer to the feel of your dream bedroom by completing small manageable tasks.
It happens to all of us. We have the best of intentions for an organized pantry. We plan to use things before they expire and keep things rotating. Then one day we look in our pantry and it's a mess. Something has spilled, other things have expired and our organized rows have become a jumble. When you don't have time to really take apart your pantry, here are some quick tips to help it feel more organized.
Have you ever looked at your overloaded closet and thought "I have nothing to wear"? I would love to overhaul my closet. I have been putting this off for a while. A long while. Usually you go through your closet and look at what you haven't worn in a while and use that to help you determine whether or not you should keep it. I couldn't really do that for a while. First I was pregnant, so nothing fit. Then I had to lose the baby weight so only some things fit. Now most things fit but I'm breastfeeding. That means even if they fit, a lot of high neckline shirts aren't being worn.
I hate cleaning. Plus sometimes it just feels like a wasted effort when the mess is back an hour later. And then if that weren't enough to dissuade you, the time it takes can be incredible. Hours to clean what takes my kids 30 seconds to dirty. On the other hand, the peace of mind that comes with a clean and organized home is amazing. You can physically feel the difference when you enter a clean room. It also does wonders for your mindset! So, in order to help you get in and out of cleaning mode more quickly, here are some tips to make cleaning go faster.
