Flower Mound Realtors – Tips Tor Stay Organized In Summer

flower mound realtors

Perhaps you’re not considering buying a home in North Texas or selling your current home. If you love the home you currently live in, good for you! However, many homeowners find that during the busy summer months when the kids are out of school and they seem to be busy with endless outdoor activities, their homes can become chaotic – completely unorganized. What to do? We have a few ideas we think you’ll find helpful.

Have lots of projects you intended to accomplish during the summer months? This is the worst time to tackle tons of projects considering vacations, BBQs with family and friends, and other activities. Choose a single project and make it a priority, whether it’s painting the kitchen or reading a novel by your favorite author. Why put so much pressure on yourself during the most fun (and busy) season of the year?

Know there are only two steps to handle the clutter that accumulates during summer months. If you’ve been on vacation, or even to the beach, you know how much “stuff” can collect. Put the suitcases, backpacks, souvenir bags, and toiletry kits all in one location. Once you do this, all you need to do is determine whether you have a real use for any of the “stuff” in the future, or whether you like the souvenirs or other things you picked up along the way. If you can’t find a use for those things you’ve collected, or don’t really love it, get rid of it. It’s that simple!

What about sleep? If you have school-aged children, you know they look forward to staying up an hour or so later during summer months. Because you have to cook dinner, clean, help the kids get bathed, then relax yourself after everything is done, you know this means you’ll be getting to bed a bit later than usual – which could throw off your routine. How can you possibly get in those seven or eight hours you have to have to function? Simple. Every now and then, insist the kids get into bed earlier (and follow suit yourself.) If you can, grab a 20 or 30 minute nap during the daytime hours. Sleep is essential for good health and energy, but it’s also critical if you’re having family or friends visit for a few days, or if you’ll spend substantial time on the roadways yourself during a family vacation.

Summer can be a super-busy time of year for most parents, but don’t even attempt to “fit it all in” when it comes to home projects, vacations, spending time with friends/family, and everything else you think you need to accomplish. Pick the one most important home project, and leave the rest for the fall season. Those do-it-yourself projects will still be there! Get plenty of rest, quickly clear the clutter or “junk” hauled home from vacations and outings, and enjoy yourself and your children before they return to school.

  • I have been beyond happy with Emma's help through this entire journey. My home buying experience is beyond a 'process' and that's why I refer to 'the journey'. We began working together one year ago - I had a somewhat trying experience when offering on a home but Emma was resourceful, patient,...

    We enjoyed working with Team Nelson. Bill helped us with our new house plans, gave us advice and always answered my calls. Kelly Sokora guided us through the selling offers, and Casey was there for us for anything we needed. Saving 3% on our end didn't hurt either! Experience matters!
