One Minute Tip: How to Fall in Love with Your Apartment

When Amelia Meena told me that she sometimes tells her clients to think of their relationship with their apartment the same way they would think of dating someone, at first I said, whaaaaat??? And then, it all came clear.

Today’s One Minute Tip comes from Amelia Meena of Appleshine, Lifestyle Organization. Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!!!

Every relationship takes a little effort, even the relationship with your apartment. Try “dating” your apartment. Don’t let your past weigh it down- get rid of old stuff that you have no intention of keeping. Make room for some one-on-one time- schedule an hour each week to go through the junk mail, sort the recycling or organize papers on your desk. Show some TLC- gift your apartment with special items that inspire and enhance your living space and clear out items that create clutter. And, most importantly, accept your apartment for what it is; don’t try to change it- embrace the quirky flaws that give your apartment character and organize around them.
