How to Have Less Clutter

Tuesday, 25 July 2017

Did you just move into an apartment and quickly learn you have way too much stuff? Use these tips to declutter your apartment! article at: https://www.homeproperties.com/blog/february-2016/three-tips-for-living-with-less-in-an-apartment

 

1. Declutter Your Closet
Clothes you haven't worn in years are lurking in the back of your closet. Are you likely to wear them again? Do they even still fit? Set aside an afternoon to try on all of your forgotten clothing. Donate any pieces that no longer fit you or your style. Divide the rest of your clothes into a "definitely keep" and a "maybe" pile. Over the next few months, move clothes from the "maybe" pile to the "keep" pile as you wear them. After six months, get rid of any clothes that are still languishing unworn in the "maybe" section.

2. Sell Your Gadgets
Are you holding onto electronic gadgets, such as printers, speakers or old cell phones, simply because it seems wrong to throw out something valuable that still works? Earn some extra cash by selling electronics that you don't use on eBay or Craigslist. You can also use Amazon's Trade-In Program to swap your unwanted gadgets for spending credit on the site, but think carefully before you spend it on items that will cause more clutter!

3. Digitize Your Media
At one time, possessing an extensive media collection meant having an entire wall of your home filled with books, DVDs, photo albums, and CDs. You can now store all of your music, video content, and photographs on a single hard drive that takes up as much space as a single CD does. Buy a 1TB hard drive and devote a few hours to scanning your photos, so you can get rid of the old photo albums that sit on your shelves gathering dust.

What You're Not Cleaning

Monday, 17 July 2017

I know I know, you don't want to be cleaning more. But these are some areas that need some TLC once in a while!  https://www.amli.com/blog/often-missed-spots-when-cleaning/

 

1.Air vents

Living in a rental apartment, you may not be responsible for changing your air filters. You should, however, wipe the vents clean with a dust rag from time to time. This prevents dust from dispersing throughout your apartment whenever your heating or cooling unit turns on. It should also help you breathe easier.

2. Baseboards

Sweeping, vacuuming, and mopping floors is an integral part of any apartment cleaning routine. Baseboards, door frames, and other molding in your home should be as well. Clean residue from spills and splashes using a Magic Eraser, vinegar, and warm water.

3.Ceiling fans

Dust loves to accumulate on the top side of ceiling fans, where it is easy to ignore. Use a microfiber cloth, dust rag, or old pillowcase to clean the blades of your fans. This is best accomplished when you haven’t used your fan in a while.

4.Curtains

Depending on the material and color of your curtains, dust can accumulate on them for months without your knowing. Some curtains can be cleaned in the dishwasher. Others need to be dry-cleaned. Care is material-specific, so do some research before cleaning.

5.Inside the couch

Keep your furniture clean by vacuuming both the furniture and the floor beneath it. For a thorough cleaning, be sure to remove or pull back cushions. Collect loose change and other random items most likely originating from your pockets, and then vacuum crumbs and debris.

6.Behind toilet

When is the last time you cleaned behind or underneath your toilet? If it’s been a while, use a cobweb catcher or Swiffer-style sweeper to rid these areas of dust and debris the next time you clean the top and inside of your toilet.

7.Washing machine

Washing machines are designed to help you with cleaning, so it’s understandable to forget you should clean them on occasion yourself. If your washing machine smells or the clothes you’ve washed smell funky after a completed cycle, it’s time to clean the machine. A dash of baking soda and some vinegar is typically all it takes to return a washing machine to its clean and odorless state.
