Are There Skeletons Hiding in Your Closets?

Fall marks the beginning of the holiday season. Halloween is just around the corner, so decorate the house, get the candy ready and prepare for the onslaught of kiddies. But remember: hoarding holiday decorations can be a major source of clutter in your home.

That’s right. You may find, buried deep in a closet, skeletons or monsters or other ghouls — outdated and forgotten decorations of holidays past. Now is a good time to clear out what you don’t need. If this is a task you’ve put off for far too long, call a home organizing service like Art of Downsizing for help. The job is always easier when someone else does the work or helps you do it. So this Halloween, sip some cider and sit by the fire as your handy home organizing service makes sure there are no skeletons lurking  in your closets.

Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice

When All Hallows Eve rolls around this year, use it as an opportunity to clear some of your home’s clutter in preparation for Christmas. As a home organizing service, we like to focus on the big picture. On Halloween, as well as year-round, the devil truly is in the details. We suggest placing a festive trinket or bouquet on side tables and other open spaces to help you avoid the temptation of using those spots for clutter. Then put the stacks of paper you’re replacing next to your scanner to either be scanned or tossed while you watch tv.

A pile of packages is festive once a year. Period. Make an effort to use every open space in your home as a way to display your keen eye for decoration, not for extra storage. Create an ambiance of an organized life to bring you and your guests peace of mind. As you clear out your closets to make way for new gifts and purchases, keep your open spaces sacrosanct and free from closet-clutter. You’ll find that opening up space in your home actually improves your sense of well being.
