New Year, New You: Tips to Get Organized Before New Year’s Day! Give thanks, get organized, and donate what you no longer need!
The end of the year is the perfect time to take stock of your organizational opportunities and reassess and revitalize your space. Suncast is here to help!
Deck the Halls, Clear the Clutter The holidays are hectic, and it can be a challenge to keep up with everyday organization on top of all the cooking, cleaning, and celebrating! One way to make your life easier is to take a more strategic approach to decorating. As you place your decorations, really examine each room of your home and start to make a mental list of items you may no longer need. Skip to the bottom of the page for some smart, space-saving ideas for items you can donate.
Get a Jump on January For many, organization around the home tops the list of neglected New Year’s resolutions. Whether the problem is inside, outside, in the garage, or all over, we suggest expanding the amount of available storage rather than simply trying to reorganize—trust us, it will make cleaning up a lot easier! Add a Suncast outdoor storage solution to handle the overflow and you’ll be ready to ring in the New Year in no time.
Cool Storage for Cold Weather Winter storage can be overwhelming without a clear organizational strategy. If you only need a little space to stow tools and accessories until spring, a small deck box is a stylish and practical option. If you’re looking for something more versatile, our extra-large deck boxes can fit firewood and rock salt with plenty of space to spare.
Donate What You Don’t Need Free up valuable storage space inside by donating items you no longer use or don’t need. There are many organizations and charities that accept donations, and passing along unneeded items will help ensure that they go to good use in the future. While you are gathering items to donate, it’s a good idea to store everything out of the way in a low-traffic area such as the garage or in a Suncast deck box to keep your home neat and tidy and ready for family and friends!
Donation Inspiration: What to Donate Consider donating one or more items to clear space in your home and help someone in need! Here are some ideas for items you can consider donating this holiday season:
