As we find ourselves inside our residences for far more hours each day than we ever planned, why not use this time to get organized? With an abundance of time indoors, things can often get a bit messy—even in your brand-new, luxury Seaport apartment at NEMA Boston. The more time you spend in a space, the messier that space often gets. But it doesn’t have to be that way. In fact, this is the ideal time to swing the pendulum back the other way, to make some changes, to rearrange, to tackle those junk drawers.

The first step when getting organized is always to declutter as much as possible. You know the spots. There are always a few cabinets, a few drawers, perhaps a closet or two, that are filled primarily with junk, but you just haven’t had the time or the energy to actually go through it all. Well, start on those problematic spots. You’d be surprised how many things you’re holding on to that you haven’t used in years. Donate anything you can and throw out the rest.

After you’ve successfully decluttered, it’s time to categorize. This is vital to avoid creating more junk drawers and busting closets in the near future. If you replace a smorgasbord of stuff with a new smorgasbord of stuff, you’ll be right back at square one in no time. Everything you own can have a defined space. That way, you’ll actually be able to find things when you need them, and you’ll know where to put things after you use them. When you reorganize, it’s not just about cleaning and separating; it’s about changing the culture inside your space. You can use this time not only to organize your home—but your mind as well—to get in the right habits. Sometimes, staying at home is just what we need.
