Calm thru the Clutter


Keep Calm and Declutter

Having a crew come into your home can be stressful. That's understandable.

You're concerned about the renovation, but you're also concerned about the state of your home. You've got to move furniture around, relocated whole rooms, and on top of that is your day-to-day living while the renovations occur.

Luckily there's a few things you can do to make this an easy transition.
Plan ahead and leave lots of time. You can use the time leading up to the renovation to get rid of unwanted furniture and other items on Kijiji. But make sure to give yourself enough time to sell off or give away your items. You don't want deal-hunters showing up at the same time as the reno crew!

Develop a sorting system. Tag what is going to remain, what you're giving away, and what rooms things belong in. Organizing what goes where before hand will make it easier for everyone working on your project.

Don't forget the closet. They often can contain more than you expect or remembered. If you're doing bedroom renovations, you're going to want to think about where all those closet items are going to live while the renovations take place. Planning ahead will save you lots of time and headaches.

Making sure you declutter will make you feel better about the upcoming renovations. And then you just have to sit back and let the pros do their work.
