Nnow is the perfect time to take steps towards a clutter-free home, so you can take on the new year with pride! Below are some easy declutter and organization tips for your home:

• Purge: if you can't remember the last time you used something, there's a good chance you don't need it. Purge, and purge often.

• Tackle a little each day: trying to do this one day will leave you overwhelmed. Identify and prioritize the trouble spots in your home, and tackle a little bit each day.

• Use unused space wisely: install hooks, and use labels, shelves, etc. The more tools you can use to organize easier, the better.

• Identify a place for everything: everything needs to have a home, so if you find things that currently don't have a home, create one.

Your home represents a big investment, and also the place you spend a lot of your time. So keeping your home in good repair is not just important for your peace of mind, but also safety and value of your home. There are three main things to keep in mind when caring for your home:

Safety

• Fire: faulty heating and electrical can be a fire hazard in your home
• Structural: damaged foundation or rotting floors, etc
• Indoor air quality: moisture trouble, or fuel-burning appliances which can cause carbon monoxide. Both issues can cause serious health problems, or even death.
• Occupational: loose railings, stairs, etc.

Preventing/Fixing Wear and Tear

• Leaky faucets, upgrades to floors and walls, etc.
• Broken fixtures, chipped paint, etc.
