Quarantine has been an odd time for all of us, and has marked the longest stretch of time many of us have been at home for a long time. But being at home doesn’t mean there is nothing useful and fun to do, and today we want to share some house and garden jobs you can do during quarantine to organise your stuff!
Clear the wardrobe
Over the year many of us end up collecting clothes we never wear, or clothes that are a little too small that we eventually plan to fit into. But now is the time to make a change and organise your wardrobe for good. Take some time this week to go through every part of your wardrobe and try everything on. Only keep things you love, things you wear, and things that have genuine sentimental value. Everything else? Either sell online through Vinted or get rid!
Minimise your furniture
After a long time living in the same house; and in this case staring at the same four walls every single day, it is time for a change. Grab yourself some secure storage units and think about clearing out the rooms of your house to make them more minimalist. You don’t need THAT much furniture, and once you have tried life without some of those small tables and cupboards that clutter up the space, you’ll likely find out that you don’t need them at all. Once you know what you want to keep and get rid of, sell items online and make some money in lockdown.
Tidy the garden
The house isn’t the only part of your home that can be changed and organised this year; the garden can be worked on too. Simple ways to spruce up the garden during lockdown is to clean up the flowerbed borders, weed the garden, and prune your large shrubs and trees into more manageable sizes and shapes. Have fun playing around with the look and feel of your outdoor space and it will make a huge difference.
Organise the loft
The loft is a part of the house which is often taken for granted and neglected, but this week you can make a positive change and finally rid yourself of the useless clutter you don’t need. Clearing out the loft might take a fair bit of time, but it will be more than worth it when you have extra space to store items you plan to keep for years to come.
Clear your pantry
Another part of the house that can sometimes be forgotten about is the pantry. If you are looking for a useful job to tackle today, the pantry is a great option. In an hour or so you will be able to rid yourself of out of date food, foods you simply won’t eat, and you can even extend your efforts to the freezer and tidy that up too.
Take time this week to identify different areas of your home that can be better organised, and sit down and get these niggling jobs out of the way!
