Kicking the Clutter: Spring cleaning and clearing your home

Ranka Burzan / Powell River Peak

MARCH 27, 2019 08:50 AM

Going through all the clothing in a closet and donating what no longer fits to a thrift store is one way to reduce clutter and free up space for frequently used items. 

Wet and chilly winter days have come to an end in beautiful and active Powell River. While we've been hibernating, extra clutter slipped in, making spring cleaning look challenging to deal with.

Now that spring has officially sprung, why not start the process of decluttering and cleaning right now?

Many of us are eager to declutter and organize our homes, but the overwhelming feeling of where to start can keep us stuck and unproductive.

While we are postponing and avoiding, clutter is growing and causing stress, anxiety and depression, the things we don’t want or need in our life.

According to the National Soap and Detergent Association, reducing clutter would also eliminate 40 per cent of time spent cleaning.

So, how do we start the liberating process of clearing and cleaning? Here are three tips that might help you get your home organized and keep it organized:

Where to start?
Select the space you want to organize. If you’re bothered by your cluttered kitchen, then make a decision to start there. Tackle your counters first by removing small and unused appliances, move onto chipped china, rusty and unusable bakeware, pots and pans. Recycle mismatched lids and bottoms and plastic bags with hidden holes.

Schedule the time
Decide how much time you can devote to these organizing and cleaning projects. Schedule the time in your calendar and plan to do it every day at the same time; consistency creates healthy habits. Be prepared and have simple tools, garbage bags, recycling bags, a couple of boxes, markers and tape.

Set up categories
The easiest way to organize is to choose a different category every week to organize your belongings. Start with your clothes for week one. Pull everything out of your master closet and lay it on your bed. Start categorizing the items: T-shirts, blouses, jackets, sweaters, pants, skirts, et cetera. Now that you know what you have, and you probably have more than you need, start by getting rid of stained, ripped and plain ugly clothing. Next time around, choose the clothes that don’t fit you and donate to your favourite charity or thrift shop.

Once you have decluttered your whole house, you can take the time to set up systems.
Do you need clear plastic containers to store seasonal clothing? Do you need shoe racks, hangers or hooks for your closets? Now is the time to spring clean every room in your house. Since you have been very busy, consider treating yourself and hiring a cleaning service.

Kicking the Clutter: Six simple tips to help get organized

Ranka Burzan / Powell River Peak


Would getting organized be on your new list of your favourite chores? Kicking the clutter and getting organized is usually the number-two resolution on people’s list; losing weight is commonly number one.

Becoming more conscious of the way we live, and also the way we shop, is a recipe for a simple and more rewarding life. If you shop-till-you-drop, the clutter will be the price you pay. Always searching for the items you need, or finding the space to store your stuff, is time and energy consuming

It’s estimated that we lose one hour per day looking for the things we need. Procrastinating and not be able to start the chores you need to do is another time-eating machine. The average person loses 20 per cent of their annual budget because they are disorganized.

At times we all might have tendencies to get emotionally attached to our belongings. The unused and unwanted items we keep might remind us of the life we once had, the relationships that didn’t work out for us, or unfinished projects we lost interest in.
 
Here are some tips to help you get organized:

1.Choose the space that needs to be organized. Start with a room that bothers you the most.

2. Assign the time and be specific. Saturday at noon is good enough. Write it on your calendar. For extra reinforcement, put a red sticker beside the time you have chosen.

3. Get tools: big and sturdy garbage bags, recycle box, packing tape, boxes and permanent markers.

4. Remove the garbage from the chosen room first. Second time around remove the items that don’t belong in that room.

5. Finally, call your favourite charity and donate the items you don’t need or use. Make sure the items you are donating are in good condition.

6. Clean and categorize the items you are keeping. Group similar items together. For example: tea, coffee, sugar, honey and hot chocolate go together. Contain the small items and label the container for easy identification.

Before you go on your shopping spree, walk through your home or office and find out what you already have to contain your stuff. Let’s start a new resolution by kicking the clutter to the curb. I have clients who simply use their shopping habits as their hobby or to make themselves feel better. Shopping addiction is just like any other addiction: it feels good for a while and then reality checks in. Getting organized will help you and your family live healthy, simple and productive lives.

Reducing allergens around the house

Ranka Burzan

Ranka Burzan, owner of the organizing and cleaning firm SOS Solutions Organizing Simple, suggests some greener ways to help reduce allergens. — Image Credit: Submitted

Allergy sufferers are often forced to stay indoors at this time of year, but home can be a source of problems as well. Home offenders like dust mites, pet dander and moulds may have flourished over the winter, making it imperative to do some spring cleaning. Consider using natural products, suggested Langley’s Ranka Burzan, professional organizer and owner of SOS Solutions Organizing Simple.

Step one is cleaning out clutter.“Cluttered homes create a lot of dust and you can’t properly clean a home that is cluttered,” explained Burzan. “Then once you’re ready to clean, you need to make sure you’re not using hazardous, chemical cleaners.”

Burzan suggested three rooms are key.“The kitchen is a great place to start as it is probably one of the busiest rooms in your home and bacteria grows quickly there,” she said. “Remove hazardous cleaners from under the sink and switch them to environmentally friendly products. Also make sure to check pipes for leaks to avoid mold growth and clear out the garbage.”

When looking for environmentally friendly products, look for effectively strong ones that don’t contain harmful substances. This will benefit not only allergy sufferers but also families with small children and seniors.

“Your next important room to focus on is the bathroom and again it’s important to get rid of any toxic cleaners and instead use green cleaners on your shower, tub, toilet and sink, paying attention to corners and cracked caulking,”

Burzan noted. “Make sure to open windows or create ventilation and also get into the habit of drying the shower walls after every use.”Regular dusting and vacuuming is also key to sucking up all that dirt, pet dander and dust mites that play a role in allergies.“The third place to focus is your bedroom. Besides your carpets and furniture, it’s also important to vacuum your mattress once every three months and replace your pillows every two years,” Burzan advised.
