How To Conquer Clutter In A Month

How To Conquer Clutter In A Month

Of course you want to live in a clean and well-kept place, right? But with all the things that occupy us everyday, sometimes we are forced to put up with things in disarray. However, we can beat clutter if we want to. Let’s set a goal to conquer clutter in one month then.

I know this can be overwhelming; however, with a  good plan it can be done. The best way is to declutter one room per week.

1st week – Living Room

Use basic furniture only: Sofa, coffee table, bookshelf, and end table. Have a storage system that works. Keep toys in decorative boxes and trunks since they can be used as side tables too. Now, let’s focus on the coffee table; a clutter hotspot, usually littered with remote controls and magazines. The solution? Organize items with decorative bowls, bins or trays.

2nd week – The Kitchen

Throw out items you don’t use anymore — old pots and pans, blunt knives and the like. Here, the junk drawer is a clutter hotspot so get rid of all items that don’t belong there. Clutter solved.

3rd Week – The Entry Way

Put hooks on the wall. They will keep your floor from being a dumping place for bags and coats. In this area, the shoe rack is a clutter hotspot. And the solution? Tuck shoes and other items in a storage bench. That way prying eyes won’t spot them.

4th Week –  The Bathroom

Clean up cabinets by throwing away these items: Out-of-date medicines, old make-up, unused lotions, and empty hotel shampoo bottles. Counters are a clutter hotspot in this room. Here’s the reasons: for accessibility, we put beauty products on the counter. Unfortunately, this adds up to the clutter and so what’s the solution? Put beauty products in a decorative basket. It’s a beauty and helps make cleaning super easy.

    8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

    8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

    We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

    On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

    Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

    1. Smart Door Locks

    A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

    2. Smart Kitchen Tools

    Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

    3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

    If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

    4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

    These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

    5. Nest Thermostat

    This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

    6. Smart Lighting

    Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

    7. Google Chromecast Ultra

    Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

    8. Canary

    This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
