Tips for de-cluttering your home for under £20!
Tuesday 11 September 2012
Transform your home for free by simply taking time to de-clutter - and make money in the process by selling unwanted items on ebay. Vicky Silverthorn gives a few tips to help you de-clutter your life without break the bank…
Add extra shelving!
It’s easy, quick and cheap and by adding a shelf to existing cupboards, units or bookshelves you can increase your storage space by quite a bit. Look at your wardrobe – would it benefit from raising a rail and adding a shelf? Re-configure your kitchen cupboards to accommodate tall bottles – keeping surfaces clear from clutter.
Three tier trays
Organise your paperwork/post in three simple steps.
Top Tier - Inbox
Middle Tier - Items that need actioning
Bottom Tier - To file away
Collate all of the paperwork you have in your home into one place until it gets files away. Keep paperwork solutions very simple. Become organised and on top of things.
Ryman's mesh tray £14.99 inc VAT
These boxes from The Holding Company are a perfect solution to storing anything that you still need to be able to put your hands on but perhaps not daily/weekly.
I use them for - warrantees & guarantees, larger photographs, chargers & foreign adaptors
They are currently on sale online only and you can buy 2 for £19.56.
These are a good investment as they are built to last and very good quality.(they come in pink, light grey, dark blue)
People think a lot about their clothing when planning their storage. Shoes come second yet from what I've seen most people seem to have a minimum of 10 pairs! So in a household of 3 we're talking a minimum of 30!
These shoe shelves are fantastic and will solve all your problems.
These hold around 30 pairs but they also make very reasonably priced versions for 21 pairs.
