FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The home buying process goes far beyond the initial sale and with the fast paced lifestyle that most of us lead, we sometimes find it impossible to clean. And when we do clean, it is only a matter of days, sometimes hours, before the clutter piles up again. Lombardo Homes is a home builder and home seller, but we don’t just sell you your new home and send you on your way. We want to help you through the obstacles that come with owning a home, maintaining a job, and keeping a healthy and happy family. This is why we have put together this piece about de-cluttering your home.
Let’s start in the kitchen. We all know that it is a necessity for the kitchen to stay clean. It’s where our food comes from after all. A clean, healthy kitchen makes for a happier dining experience. You need to pick a day when you will dedicate 1 hour to cleaning up the mess.
Start with 3 boxes and label them “Put away”, “Sell/Donate” and “Trash”. It’s simple enough. Go through each cupboard and counter and sort accordingly. If you haven’t used the item in over a year and it is not a seasonal accessory, trash it. If you’ve used it in the last month, keep it. If it is a canned or non-perishable item that has been sitting for a year donate it. While the items are boxed, wipe down those counters and clean up those crumbs.
Then, take the seasonal items and put them in a special place together. Put away the monthly accessories next and the important daily accessories last – exactly where you found them. Don’t quit in the middle, you’ll feel good when the job is done. Take those extra 5 minutes every day to utilize the new space that you made and keep that kitchen clean and organized.
