Functionality in your home is a major must-have this year. That’s why we have gathered upgrades and changes that make your home work better for you and your family.
Before you get into upgrades and updates - start with the basics.
There’s no better time than the new year to get organized. This is one of the easiest ways to update a space in your home. When getting rid of the clutter we always ask that you consider donating gently used items to your local consignment stores. There are two simple ways to keep your space clean and clutter free.
Periodically get rid of things you don’t want or need
Only bring in items you NEED
It’s always smart to create a yearly budget, especially when it comes to updating your home. A budget will help you know how much to spend and will help you avoid over spending. Some tips to help you save some money when budgeting:
Turn your lights out when you’re not using them
Turn your AC off when you leave
Turn your heat down at night
Take shorter showers

Sometimes the easiest way to declutter is to remove everything and just add back the items that you need. If you are in need of space to help you tackle the task of home organization, Go Mini's portable storage containers are the perfect option.
