How to Properly Clean-up After the Holidays

Decorating and having guests over at your new apartment at Legacy Court Apartments in Midvale is the best part of the holiday season. Once the fun and games is over it is up to you to get your apartment back in order. To help you with that process we have gathered some tips to help you properly clean up after the holidays.

Distribute your Time

Trying to organize all the new clutter all at once can be very overwhelming. It is better to tackle one area of the house at a set amount of time. Taking 30 to 60 minutes either once or twice a day to reorganize an area of the home will help you manage the chaos more effectively.

Document your Work

When organizing you often feel like you have been working for hours without even making a dent in the mess. To help this dilemma it helps to take a before and after picture of each space you choose to declutter and organize. This way you have the visual motivation you need to keep pushing forward through the organization process and gives you evidence to brag to your fellow house-mates.

Plan Ahead

The holidays are a busy time of year. It helps to prepare for the gifts you are going to receive by going through your home and organizing your closets, cupboards, and storage spaces. You will tend to find that you have been keeping things you haven’t used in years or that could go to a more deserving home. By clearing out these spaces you create room for the gifts you will receive from you loved ones this year.

Sort your Seasonal Items

Once the holidays are over it is time to put away all of those seasonal decorations. This will give you an opportunity to reevaluate whether you want to keep some of those decorations you have been reviving over the years. Often times it is time to throw away those broken ornaments and tangled light strands. You will be opening up just that much more storage space in your home by taking the time to go through these items.
