Homework, let me show you how to get your kids to focus while doing homework with the help of a little interior design magic. In a matter of weeks, school is starting and we’ll all be back at our day-to-day routine again. Part of me is excited about this change – and another part is decidedly NOT excited about it. I asked other parents what their struggles were with school and it was almost unanimous – “Homework!” Homework is a tough one for us too. I’m a mother of 2 boys and, boy oh boy, homework is the toughest part of raising little humans.
Tips and Tricks
Get a fresh start in 2017 and declutter your home to regain design clarity. What better way to begin than by decluttering and getting rid of items that have collected dust over the years, or once-loved treasures that have lost their luster? Let’s go room by room and dive in, shall we?
Declutter Your Kitchen
Decluttering your kitchen is really important because the kitchen is the focal point of your home. It is more than just where your family is in and out of throughout the day. It is also the epicenter of where your friends hang out while you’re prepping apps and playing mixologist with the latest watermelon martini recipe. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a whole cabinet dedicated to all of your bar essentials? How cool would it be to have a pull out bar that’s hidden in your kitchen cabinet! But – bummer! You have that deep fryer and ice cream maker taking up most of the storage room. No cool hidden bar for you to impress your friends. I know, once upon a time when you and your husband were dating, you both enjoyed breaking out the ice cream maker to make vanilla ice cream from scratch. However, now fresh ice cream is just a click away and you’re getting it delivered. How about taking those once upon a time appliances to Goodwill or give it to another couple that’s going through the beginning stages of dating? Not only can you get rid of those small appliances you can clear out the cookbooks that relate back to the deep fryer. It’s like a win-win!
