We’ve all heard of spring cleaning, but fall is another popular time to reorganize closets, sort out storage and streamline to make room for winter items which are typically bulkier and take up more room than clothing and household items needed during warmer weather.
According to a 2018 survey completed for the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, 39% of homeowners conduct a major cleaning overhaul once a month, while 31% perform a big clean up seasonally. Organizing and packing away clothes topped the list of challenging tasks for about half the respondents. These tasks are also ones that many of us put off for so long that by the time we do get around to a reorganization, it takes a significant amount of time. It is worth remembering then, that a little effort put in every day will result in the task taking less time overall.
