What do The Container Store, Target, and the Pottery Barn at Avalon have in common? Just the best of everything you’ll need to get your place ready for the holidays.
The Idea Specialists at Belmont at Park Bridge Apartments, in Alpharetta, have been on the move, looking for ways to make the upcoming holidays easier and more fun for our residents. We’ve completed the research and have a list of things to do in advance to get organized, so you can sit back and relax once the holiday festivities begin.
Let’s start with the basics — organizing and cleaning. Sometimes it feels like cleaning your apartment can take an entire day. No need to despair! We’ve compiled a guide with tips and tricks to help you tackle the task quicker than you can spell THANKSGIVING. Let’s get started by breaking down your spaces.
The rule of thumb with this room is to keep it organized. Easier said than done. Laundry rooms tend to get cluttered with clothes and cleaning supplies; but simple organizers can turn your laundry room around. The Container Store is a great place to shop for everything for organization.
Check-out this Laundry & Ironing Starter Kit, perfect for any apartment home. The kit includes: 1 Rowenta Access Steam Iron, 2 Stacking Laundry Baskets, 1 Compact Accordion Drying Rack, 1 “The Laundress” Signature Detergent, 1 “The Laundress” Stiffen Up Starch and 1 Flip FOLD Laundry Folder.
This is the place where everyone gathers, right? Do you ever open the door under the sink and immediately close it back due to the mess? This space is a catch-all for an assortment of soaps, sponges, garbage bags, towels…and all of these items tend to mask together.
The Container Store also has amazing storage bins and organizers for under the sink. An elegant way to showcase spices, cooking utensils and fruits and veggies, is by incorporating trendy counter organizers. Pottery Barn at Avalon has a variety of options that will clear your counter tops with added décor.
A good place to start in this room is the floors. Pick-up things lying around and run a vacuum over rugs and carpets. Place blankets and magazines in decorative baskets by the couch or in a corner to expose more space. Target has a plethora of options from beautiful wicker, to crate-type baskets. Shop at your local Target to find the storage basket that fits your style and needs.
A quick way to de-clutter any bathroom is an over the toilet organizer. These organizers can be aesthetically pleasing and help hide bathroom products. We suggest Bed, Bath, and Beyond for the quantity of options at a good price!
Take the “chore” out of chores and organize your surroundings to enjoy your space AND the upcoming holiday season.
