Using the Zone Plan to Organize Your Home: The Spare Bedroom
My spare bedroom is used as a place for guests to stay, a storage area for memorabilia, my offsite office storage, as well as some storage in the dresser for off season or rarely worn clothes. As I have recently moved, my zones are a little confused. I want this room to look open and inviting to my guests. I also want all of my storage items easy to locate.
During this month, I will clean out every drawer in the dresser. I will designate zones within the drawers so that each drawer will have a function. I will also pull every box and file from the closet. I put in an elfa closet system when I moved in so the space is maximized. Still some of the older files are truly archival and can now be moved to the attic. Quite a few files can be deeply purged. This will open up some space for items to come in throughout the year.
By the end of the month, I will have this spare bedroom zone the way I want it to look and feel for another year. Then next February I will tackle it again.
For help setting up your zones, purchase my workbook – From Vision to Victory: A Workbook For Finding a Simple Path to an Organized Home. This book is available on my website – www.timespaceorg.com.
