For Huntsville AL Home Owners: Ways To Get Organized!

By: Huntsville Real Estate Expert Mike Manosky On April 13, 2013

Getting more organized is often at the top of everyone’s ‘To Do’ list, especially if you’re considering putting your Huntsville AL home on the market in the near future. But most people start out strong and then lose their motivation when they don’t see organizedimmediate results or because they are trying to do too much at once. The trick to getting and staying organized to form good habits, stay with them, and understand that small changes make a big difference.

Almost every organizational challenge is due to the imbalancebetween the amount of “stuff” you bring into your Huntsville AL home and the amount you take out.  If you clean out only once or twice a year, it is hard to know where to start. De-cluttering more frequently makes the work less taxing both emotionally and physically– and keeps your property in “ ready to show” condition for  potential buyers or unexpected guests.

If you’re like most folks attempting to reorganize, you are probably looking around your Huntsville AL home and asking, ”Where do I start?”  Garage? Kitchen? Closets?  Cabinets?  So many spaces; so much to do!  Worry not; practical and helpful tips for dealing with specific locations await you on a wide variety of websites.

Before you access those sites, however, it’s wise to heed the following general advice of organization gurus:

  • A to-do list helps prioritize everything you need to do today, this week, and this month.. Creating a single list that you look at, and revise, daily will help you remember, prioritize, and organize your tasks.  Categorize items into those which will become weekend projects, those at which you can chip away a little at a time, and those which might require assistance.
  • Allocate 10 minutes a day.   Take a quick peek in your refrigerator and toss out all outdated items. While you’re waiting for a pot of water to boil, organize a kitchen drawer or sort one bin of toys or tools.
  • Be prepared with extra boxes, baskets, and bins to sort and store efficiently.
