How do you know if it’s clutter?

Thanks to Cindy Bernstein of Aim4Order for this episode of Tips from the Pros on how do you know if it’s clutter.

How do you know if it's clutter?

You want to get rid of the clutter in your home, but how do you know if it’s clutter or something else? When you see objects around your home on a daily basis, they just become part of the landscape. After a while, you don’t even notice the clutter. Here are some questions to ask yourself that will help you.

Do you use it?

We all have things around the house we never use, maybe you’re not even sure where it’s stored. That’s clutter. Things go out of style, your tastes change or maybe you were never a big fan of that item at all...

Stage your home to sell – monthly item of value

Stage your home

We’ve all heard about first impressions. They are usually lasting impressions. If you take an objective look at your home, how will it do?

The time it takes to sell your home can be decreased by making your house look the its best. By using some staging techniques you can become more competitive in the marketplace.

The look of the outside of your home, known as curb appeal, is the first thing a prospective buyer sees. Are there leaves everywhere? Downed branches from the last storm? Gutters full of debris and sagging? In a little time, the debris can be removed and the yard will instantly look better.

Inside your home clutter can be removed. Papers, toys and other objects that are not put away look messy...

Tips from the Pros: Cramped Quarters

Thanks to Aim4Order for this month’s Tips from the Pros about making the most of small quarters, making a home with less square footage more livable.

There’s no room!

No matter what size home you have, there never seems to be enough room. People who own expansive estates still have trouble keeping clutter at bay. It’s all about your perspective.

Baltimore households these days often include a grandparent or other extended family member. With the added people, homes feel like they are shrinking. However, living in small quarters is no excuse for a cluttered house.

Small homes have small storage, and being thrifty with space becomes a way of life. Get rid of what you don’t need. If you don’t love something, find someone who does or toss it...

Create a multipurpose room, not a dumping ground

The luxury of a spare room is something few of us enjoy. But many Baltimore area homes have three or more bedrooms, offering homeowners the chance to create a multipurpose room. Making the best of the space can be a challenge. Be careful to use it without having this room become a major source of clutter.

Using the spare room as a junked up closet, or only the four days out of the year your in-laws come to visit, is a waste. With a spare room that has more than one use, you are making the most of it instead of ignoring this valuable area.

You could covert the room into a spare bedroom/office/changing room that can be used on a daily basis. Furnishings may be several pieces that do not match and don’t fit anywhere else in the house.

Give the furniture a makeover by refinishing or repainti...

Dealing with those basement treasures

This blog is courtesy of Cindy Bernstein and Aim4Order.com

Anyone who has a basement has boxes of mementos that are taking up space. When your little boy Johnny is 36 with a family of his own, do you still need to keep his third grade art project? Of course, the answer is no. While we are all proud of our kids, is there really anything you need to keep in those boxes?

It can be just as hard to bid farewell to your own belongings as those of your kids. Old term papers from college, your favorite teen idol poster and the ticket stub from your first concert lose their importance with time.

If you are really proud of everything in the box, you can scan it all to your computer. A thumb drive or two filled with scanned images take up a lot less space than a big box...
