Organizing your closet!

Looking to revamp your closet? Or it’s a mess and you need to make it better and easier to use? Today we have tips that will help your organize your closet.

First things first, do you have clothes that you have not worn in a year? Well get rid of them. The best first step to organizing your closet is to pare down your clothes, making sure that you are only keeping clothes that you do wear and use. Paring down your clothes and getting rid of those clothes will give you more space in your closet and help make it look just a little less messy.

If you cannot figure out what clothes you do and don’t not use, turn the hangers. Turn the hangers so they are backwards and then once you have used the item of clothing put it back the normal way. After a while you’ll see what clothes you do wear and clothes that you do not. This will help you decided quicker which clothes are important to your style and which you do not use that much or at all.

The next thing you could do is put shelves. Buy a bookshelf whether it is big or small and add it into the closet. This will give space for clothes that do not need to be hung up or even just some shoes or extra things that you keep in the closet. Having these shelves will keep stuff from cluttering the floor of the closet and make it more spacious or at least look more spacious.

The last tip for today is to stagger your shoes. If you put the shoes the same direction as its pair it takes up space. If you stagger the shoes it will help make more room. It keeps the shoes closer together which makes it so you can fit more shoes or more of something else. It gives more space to closets that do not have much and closet that do.

Hopefully these tips will help get your closet organized and looking pretty! Good luck and happy organizing!

Organizing your kitchen pantry!

Feel like your kitchen pantry is a little cluttered? Well here are a couple of ideas that may help you declutter your kitchen pantry.

One idea that could help your pantry look a little nicer is to buy jars to put ingredients in. Instead of having the different assortments of cereal boxes, flour bags, sugar bags, and candy bags, you could have cute labeled jars of different foods. Having the same type of jar with different items in them will look better than having different colored and sized boxes whose colors don’t really match. Getting jars that match each other whether they are a certain color or clear will help give a more organized and sophisticated look to your pantry.

One thing to add to the first idea is using baskets. Some products can’t really be taken out of their original packaging and put into jars. If this happens find some baskets that look similar to the jars or just match the jars. They don’t have to be the same brand as long as they match each other. Having all the products put into jars or baskets will help give the pantry one unique or a few unique colors and that makes the pantry look 10 times better than having a bunch of random unorganized colors.

Remember to label everything! If you don’t label everything it will be hard to find the ingredients you need. Especially with the jars of food. You don’t want to accidentally use salt when you need sugar!

Hopefully these ideas will help you organize your kitchen pantry a little more. Have a fun time organizing!

Making a house a home!

Is your rental not feeling homey enough for you? Well here are some tips to help you make your house a home!

The first idea that will help make your house a home would be to put up pictures of your family and friends. Have a picture of your favorite vacation with your family? Then get a frame, print off the picture and put it up somewhere in the house. Having these memoires up will bring some fun times back to memory and make your house feel homier.

The next idea would be to try putting some greenery around the house. Find some plants you like and put it somewhere in your home. Can’t keep a plant alive? Don’t worry that’s why someone decided to make fake plants so those of us who don’t have a green thumb could have some green in our home.

Thirdly, cushions. Add cushions around the house. Add them to your bed pile them high. Having cushions can help improve the look of your room and make you feel at home. You can also add cushions to your couch this will help make the living room feel a little more comfortable. You can add a throw blanket too. It can also just add a little color to the room. 

  Fourth, Add some color! Add a new rug or put some flowers in a vase. Having some color added to the house will help give it a little more spunk which will help it feel more comfortable and fun.

Lastly, make some memories! Have some friends over for a dinner or movie night. Making memories in the house will help turn it into a home. Having some memories in the house will help you have good feelings and memories to look back on.

We hope these tips help you make your house into a home!

Garbage Disposal Smelling Funky?

If you notice a lingering funk coming from your garbage disposal, it’s probably time to give it a cleaning. Weekly cleaning can keep the garbage disposal clean and free of smells. Take necessary precautions to prevent the disposal being turned on accidentally while you clean it.

The rubber baffle at the drain opening can be scrubbed with soap and abrasive side of a sponge. Makes sure to get all the fold and creases.

You can pour little dish soup as it’s running to clean and deodorize the area, but some people prefer baking soda and vinegar, lemons, or ice.

Pour 1/2 cut of baking soda into disposal, then carefully pour 1/2 cup of vinegar into the disposal. It will fizz up and use the sink stopper to trap the fizz. After a few minutes, remove the stopper and flush the disposal with hot water while running the garbage disposal.

Once this step has been completed, you can add the lemon peals to give it a fresh citrus smell.

Again, please make sure to take all precautions when cleaning your garbage disposal.
