Spring Cleaning time of the year is here, and it’s the perfect time to organize your home. Included in organization are those oh-so-important documents and information that seems to never be at your fingertips when you need them (birth certificates, immunization records, etc). I am the first to admit that while I may be organized with things in my professional life, those documents in my personal life seem to never be where I need them. So, let’s take this time to get organized together! Especially if you’re considering putting your home on the market this summer, now is the perfect time to start organizing your home and donating items that are no longer useful so that you aren’t bombarded with so much to do in the midst of summer before listing (when you would much rather be on vacation and spending quality time with your family 🙂
Some people have not embraced the usefulness of the bookmarking app of Pinterest. “Do-It-Yourself-er” or not, you’ll find many great ideas here…and not just for the home. One in particular that I ran across seemed great for organizing and storing all of life’s useful documents. Whether you decide to important documents in a file-cabinet and lock it away, place them neatly in the garage (so that that ugly filing cabinet is out-of-sight), or store life’s must-haves on an external drive, consider making a second copy filed under “items for home loan” if considering purchasing a home soon. Not only will it make your home loan process much smoother, but should something happen or an emergency arise such as an unexpected surgery or hospitalization, another family member will know exactly where to go to make sure there’s no lapse in any important bill during your stay. So jump on Amazon and get a few filing-cabinets and let’s begin, working one-by-one: (by the way…the mentioned website also has a lot of great tips for the home!).
Once you’ve organized all of the important papers and documents in your life…on we go to organizing other important matters of the home. If you’re considering selling a home this summer, your agent will be so impressed when they come by for your pre-listing appointment!
