Are you someone who thrives on home organization? If you are like me, you can get overwhelmed by stuff lying around in piles throughout your home. I take advantage of spring cleaning each year to also declutter and organize our home.
Organizing a home is a matter of personal preference. The way I might organize might not be the same way that you would. For example, you might organize the clothes in your closet by length, where I might organize my clothes by color.
Therefore, researching ideas before starting a decluttering project is key. As you make plans to organize and declutter your home, you will probably want to do as much research as possible in order to get an idea of what you like. By looking at several different places for inspiration, you will get clear ideas of what you do and do not like.
By looking extensively and collecting ideas, you will have enough information to decide on an appropriate way to manage the mess in your home, and create a new space you love.
