A house can quickly become chaotic if it is not well organized, especially when it hosts a large family. The problem is that we tend to accumulate things, which are not always necessary. The first action you should take is to throw away all that is superfluous, or even better, give them to those who need it. After that, it is time to get to work and organize what’s left, from chaos to order.
Create a Storage Space outside Your House
If you have a yard or additional ground on your property, start the task by adding one of the flat pack storage containers, in the size that would fit best. They are the greatest solution that have been thought of, through the last few years. They come in a box, to make them easier to carry. Inside, you will find a kit, that you will have to build at home. It’s also practical since you can remove it and store it easily, if you need the space in your garden, later on. That will provide you with a large storage space, in which you can place anything you would like, from bicycles to winter or summer clothes, depending on the season.
Turn the Garage into a Play Room
One of the things a family accumulates most, are games and other items for physical activities, like weights, elastics and training mats. If the family has become too big, it may be an ideal situation to turn the garage into a play room. By moving all the items into this one space, you will liberate part of the children’s rooms as well as the tv room, where the exercising tools are probably currently residing. The car can always live outside, as it was built for it.
Go through all Your Cupboards
It is very rare that a house has cupboards that are ultimately in order. And yet, this is the most important way to gain some space in your home. Start by the kitchen cupboards, where you will have to reposition the spices, canned foods and other non-perishable items. Buy plastic containers, in which you will deposit each category of products, separately. Spices should all be together, sauces placed separately, and so on. When you are done, you will most probably have gained one full cupboard of space. However, you will need to keep it clean, in the future. Otherwise, that space will disappear again, within a few weeks.
