So, let the decluttering begin!
That’s what my nephew’s wife wrote on her Facebook page. Of course, if you’re in the Army, as is my nephew, pulling up stakes and moving goes with the territory. With each move, this family gets rid of clutter. Staying organized is important to them. One thing they’ve discovered: double-duty furniture.
Today’s furniture is designed for versatility and functionality, said the movers Jacksonville, Fl.
Take coffee tables that lift up to create a workspace. Designed with hinges, these modern tables lift up so you can prop up a laptop computer. Voila! An instant mini office. Coffee tables with two shelves help corral magazines and books on the lower level. The top shelf can either stay clear or be used to display decorative items such as a dish, vase or a tray, a popular choice nowadays.
Choose end tables with draws, a good spot to put TV remotes and keep them out of sight. Benches and ottomans are great for organization, too. Benches, especially, are useful as they can serve a purpose in most any room and just about anything can be stored in them, including toys, towels, bed linens, extra blankets and throws – even office supplies, said the movers Jacksonville, Fl.
Beds with drawers under the mattress and box spring are useful, too, as well as night stands with drawers or shelves.
If you have a front entryway, choose a small table with a drawer where you can put a set of keys – not only a great storage solution but you’ll never lose your keys again. That kind of organization keeps you sane. Losing keys is a nightmare.
Remember school lockers – the place to store books and other stuff?
Modular lockers — white or bright red or in a variety of wood-tone choices — are touted as family lockers, said the movers Jacksonville, Fl.
