There are a lot of New Year’s Resolutions you can make. You might try and cut refined sugar out of your diet or exercise more, but as far as we’re concerned, the best New Year’s resolution in 2018 is to get and stay organized!

As professional Atlanta movers, we’ve seen first-hand how clutter can get in the way of a move, and we’ve also seen how it can affect people’s lives.

Here are a few tips from our team on ways you can get, and stay, organized in 2018.

Get Rid of Stuff You Don't Use and Clothes You Don't Wear

It’s amazing how quickly stuff can pile up in your home. You know exactly what we mean if you can never seem to find what you’re looking for in the junk drawer, or there isn’t any more room in your closet.

Don’t keep things around just in case you may need them someday. You won’t be able to find what you’re looking for when the time comes anyway!

Instead, get rid of anything that hasn’t been used in over a year. Not sure what you’ve worn over the last year? Place your hangers backwards, then switch them around whenever you wear something. At the end of the year, you can keep what is hung properly in the closet and get rid of all the rest.

Less Is More When It Comes to Furniture

It’s not just the small stuff that contributes to clutter in the home. You wouldn’t believe how many large items our furniture movers in Atlanta have taken out of small apartments!

Not every wall needs to be covered with a bookcase or a couch. Determine which pieces of furniture get the most use, and which are the most meaningful to your family.

Don’t want to get rid of your furniture? No problem! At ALS Van Lines, we offer multiple storage solutions. We’ll hang onto your furniture until you need it again.

Focus on Items That Have Multiple Uses

Remember what life was like when you had a phone, a camera, a computer, and a video recorder? Life is so much easier now that one small device does it all!

This concept can transform nearly any room in your home. Take the kitchen for example. Do you need an avocado slicer, a cherry pitter, and an orange peeler? A simple knife can help you do all those things, and it takes up a lot less space.
