The cooler, rainy days of fall are the perfect time to tackle larger home organizing projects. Remember to take your time and set reasonable expectations, so you don’t get overwhelmed.
1. Create a Home Inventory
A home inventory is documented proof of what you own in case of disaster. Insurance companies encourage even a basic inventory because “what they can see, they can replace.” We’ve got a great tool to help you get started.
2. Go Paperless
Going paperless isn’t just better for the environment; it reduces clutter and increases productivity as well. Use digital notes tools like Simple Note to keep track of things like your grocery list. You can share the list with family members as well. Learn more about digital organizing here.
3. Organize Photos
Whether you’ve got boxes of printed photos, more digital photos than you can count, or both, fall is the perfect time to bring order to that chaos. Get all the tips you need to get started.
4. Organize Your Collection
From Precious Moments figurines to model cars and everything in between, if you’ve got a collection, you know how out of hand they can get. This fall, take some time to go through it all, organize it, and create a digital inventory of what you have. This makes it easier to find that particular piece and ensure you don’t buy something twice. Plus, it acts as part of your home inventory.
