Blog: Take The Stress Out Of Housecleaning
Clean and organize your furniture according to the amount of storage it offers

During the spring cleaning routine, we all love to rearrange the furniture in our homes to give us a new look. However, we tend to move things around that are already in a room, instead of taking items from other rooms and using them to enhance what we already own.

Recently, as I was spring cleaning I did the exact same thing! I moved everything around to give it a new look and then I noticed something. I had two three-shelf bookcases, one on either side of a doorway that took up a lot of floor space. They looked nice, displayed items nicely, however, I could use the six-shelf bookcase from in the kids room and have it take up less space, still have everything displayed the way I wanted and gained extra floor space.
It made me wonder what other pieces of furniture I could move from room to room and gain space.
I had a nightstand in the bedroom that had basically junk in the drawers and found that it would look nice next to an overstuffed chair in the living room and give added storage space where I needed it the most. I then put the end table that I had in the living room, next to the bed, added a table cloth and lamp and had a cute nightstand that took up less space.
Remember the two three-shelf bookcases that I had in the living room originally? I painted one red and one white and put those in the kids playroom, the red bookshelf was the boys toys and books and the white was for the girls.
So, we don't always have to keep things in the room that we purchased the specific piece of furniture for. Sometimes a new look offers us more storage, a change of decor and an inexpensive way of redecorating our home.

Jan's Website:


Fun Things To Do

  • Fishing Lake Michigan
    Whether it is by boat or off the pier, there is nothing like getting that first Coho or King.
  • Grandchildren are fun
    Making memories for your grandchildren of all of the fun times they had with grandma and grandpa is one of the best memories you will make for yourself too.
  • Camping
    A tent, a firepit and sitting in the woods is a campers dream. We spend a lot of time camping in Northern Wisconsin and I have tons of camping recipes to share.

TV Shows

  • American Idol
    I am hooked on this show, nothing interrupts me when this is on. By the time they get to Hollywood, I already have the top ten picked out.
  • Last Comic Standing
    I love to see how these people, take the judges advice and change their tactics to become great comics, instead of just a comic.
  • House
    Now really, isn't he the kind of doctor you want on your side? He always has a reason for his actions, he looks until he finds the cure and he has flaws just like the rest of us.
  • Any home make over show
    I get some of my best ideas off of these shows and I also find things that I wouldn't dream of doing to someone elses home. I will admit, there are times that I wish they would call me and ask for my help!
