Does the sight of your cluttered closets or disorganized pantry give you the urge to kick back and watch every show on your DVR list, much like Joey and Chandler from Friends? Don’t get overwhelmed, conquer that mess and create an inviting living space with Morgenson’s 3 Steps to Declutter your Apartment for Spring!

1. SET GOALS

Winter in South Eastern Wisconsin makes tossing things around, creating a chaotic mess in your apartment, SO easy to do! Before you get started reorganizing, make a plan. Here are a few things to keep in mind as you get started decluttering your home:

  • Set completion dates for each phase of your cleanup. Be sure to pick dates that are attainable so you don’t get frustrated.
  • Plan time to work on how you’ll reorganize your spaces after you’ve completed the decluttering aspect
  • Make ridding yourself of certain belongings something to be excited about! Instead of throwing away unwanted things, donate them to Goodwill and let another family enjoy them as much as you did. Click here to locate your nearest Goodwill store! 

2. CREATE DECLUTTER ZONES

Trying to take on too much at once can be paralyzing. Instead of going from room to room, sort through like-things and group your belongings:

  • Clothes
  • Shoes
  • Jewelry
  • Important documents/keepsakes/photos
  • Items to be stored in garage/storage unit

3. A PLACE FOR EVERYTHING

Once you’ve scrapped the unnecessary and finally made peace with donating your 5th pair of black boots that you “got such a good deal on” during Black Friday 10 years ago. (maybe that’s just me?) Make sure you’ve designated specific places to put the things you’ve decided to keep. This is a key component to preventing clutter relapse in the future.

Luckily you’ll never have a problem organizing your belongings at our beautiful properties! Walk-in closets, storage units and ingeniously built spaces provide our tenants with endless options to help keep their homes organized and inviting.
