In honour of Halloween, let’s talk about that SCARY Spare Bedroom. You know the space, everyone has one and it is where we dump all those items that we may want but don’t know where to put. Don’t PANIC, it is an easy fix and not a very scary task to complete! Set aside the time to complete this project or just set aside a few hours to purge and hire a Professional Organizer to do the rest for you. www.organizeonce.com
First … Purge the room. Get rid of all those items that are no longer of use to you. Donate, give to friends/family, sell on Kijiji or just throw it away. If you find items that belong somewhere else in the house, get them to that space.
Second … Decide what you want that room to be used for. Perhaps a Guest Room, Craft Room, Extra Closet or Home Office. Your home is your castle so make the most of the space you have.
Third … Purchase (or rescue from the basement) what you need to keep the room organized and tidy. This will change depending on what you want the room to be so make sure you decide that first. Is it bins and baskets, a closet system or desks and drawers?
Lastly, install those new items you need to keep the room organized and put everything away. Enjoy! You have just added Real Estate to your home!
