Your house is a mess. You have been trying to juggle two jobs at the same time as well as complete your assignments in graduate school that you didn’t have the time to fix your space anymore. Now it’s school break and you have already taken care of your mom’s hospital bills which means you can drop your second job. And as we write, you are now at home where you can rest from all the stress life has been giving you lately. You can finally breathe and even take a vacation. You were about to lie down on your sofa when you noticed there was little space to move around your living room because of too much clutter. You have accumulated too much waste over the past couple of months that went unnoticed because you were so busy trying to fulfill all the hats that you wear. When did your space become this dirty? After this realization, you start planning to do some major clean-up the next day. You throw out all the trash that has been making your space filthy and smell bad. You pick up cleaning materials and start washing everything with soap, from the ceiling to the floor. You check for cracks and holes and repair them instantly. You call the help of your friendly neighbor and the neighborhood’s trusted handyman to help you with the repairs. You decide to do a paint job so that your place can look and feel brand new. But even if you’ve already done the clean-up, there is still not much space in your home. You notice that you’ve got a lot of stuff, and by a lot we mean, you don’t have space for it in your house. The next logical thing to do is to find new homes for things that don’t serve you anymore. You host a garage sale online and in-person to get rid of everything that hasn’t been serving you anymore for more than a year or so. Some stuff you also decided to give to your friends who enthusiastically accepted your gift. So now that you’ve gotten rid of these things, the next step for you to do is that you maximize every space in your home so that they can serve their primary function. The garage for instance is primarily used for storage. You can buy new things inside your home if your old things can be properly stored in your garage. What you need to do is to install smart storage solutions so that you can maximize your space and organize your belongings in a neat fashion that will make everything accessible to you. We listed down items from FlexiMounts here:
