Spring is generally touted as the perfect month for cleaning and resetting your home. But summer is usually when we’re using our spaces most — whether we’re off from work and enjoying a staycation or having friends over for parties or outdoor barbecues. That makes summer the perfect time to finally declutter and downsize your space.
If you struggle to keep your home clean, the problem might not be your habits — it may be that you have more stuff than you’re able to keep up with. Keeping your house looking flawless means you need to have a set space to store every item you own. And if you don’t, it may be time to scale back. This will make maintaining your home easier and make it simpler to sell your house (if you decide to) later on.
