Home Living : January 11th 2011
4 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, January 11, 2011 Start out with a plan, then sort and store HOMELIVING Once you go past the festivity, it's important to start getting organised for the year ahead. Here are some easy projects for a better 2011. 1 Take an afternoon to fix up the inside of your bathroom cupboards. Restore order behind the mirror by grouping make-up and other items in stackable boxes and lipstick holders. If your bathroom or shower needs more storage space, add it with a caddy. Suction pads allow for simple, drill-free installation. 2 Summer is the perfect time to pack away all our winter clothes. Invest in space bags that offer great protection against dirt, bugs, moisture and odours. 3 Create an organisation station for your kids. It should include an area for unpacking school bags, a spot to organise homework and a homework desk with stationery and books. Storage in this area can be better organised with storage tubs and different-sized baskets. 4 Where is the first place you put everything without a home? The garage! Set aside a weekend and indulge in a garage makeover. Having everything stored and clearly labelled will save you time and effort. This is especially true for those with an accumulation of sporting equipment. Think laterally too -- a jewellery holder is great for small hardware like nails, screws, washers etc. 5 Properly store your shoes and boots. The easiest and quickest way to do this is getting some clear storage boxes. 6 Fix up your car clutter. A storage solution in the boot makes transporting things much safer, while a litter bag fixed to the back seat of the car is perfect for collecting rubbish. 7 Make a gardening shelf to store everything you need in one place. For an apartment dweller this shouldn't take long, but if you have a park-like garden, it could be a whole shed that needs fitting. Remember, as with any of the tasks, start by making a plan, then sort and store.
