Love Your Home Week - Day 1

There are many ways to show your home a little TLC, and what better time to do this then Valentine's Day! This week I'll give you tips for some small projects with big results to show your home how much you care.

Day 1 - Clear Out The Clutter
Yes, this generally falls under “Spring Cleaning”, but in the springtime I like to be outside, so to me this is a great winter project. Nothing revives a room more than simply re-organizing. As much as I strive for a place for everything, and everything in it’s place, clutter can inevitably build up, especially after the holidays, as you try to fit in all the new, without clearing out the old. Go through your closet and clear out the clothes you don’t wear and donate them to a local charity. Then take a look around the rest of your home with fresh eyes. Are your toiletries taking over your bathroom? Pick up some matching decorative baskets and group like items together. Weed out items that are not used every day and find them a new home. I picked up these baskets at the dollar store for $2 each, but no one really needs to know that!
