Top Tip #1 from The Storage Guy: De-Clutter
Address the "lack of spaceâ€ complaint.
Lack of space is a common complaint for both men and women. So why not de-clutter as a Valentine`s Day gift for your significant other?
Examine the following trouble zones and take immediate action.
Trouble Zone #1: The Bedroom
Both men and women are guilty of cluttering up the bedroom. This should be your romantic retreat, so why not de-clutter to increase the desire factor.
Â Keep clutter out of bed and around it. Make room for your lover/spouse by kicking the magazines, books and papers out of the bed.Â Have a basket or wicker box nearby to toss them in. Or create a "Electronic Cornerâ€ for MP-3`s, DVDs, CDs,cell phones, Blackberry`s, iPads and other electronic devices.Â Let the electric charge that flows in bed be between you and your lover/spouse.
Gift Alert! Buy a charging station, but keep it away from the bed.
Trouble Zone #2:Â The Bathroom
Women are often guilty of overloading the bathroom with too many hairdryers, beauty machines or too many beauty products they don`t use.Â
Â Women, why not have a cocktail party, do beauty treatments and give away some of those products to your friends?
Men -- Gift Alert:
Â Buy her beautiful cosmetic storage boxes
for Valentine`s Day. But don`t say "you`re too messy, clean upâ€ â€“ let the gift inspire her. The idea is to give her more room â€“ she won`t get mad at that.
Trouble Zone #3:Â Kitchen or Dining Room Table
Both men and women are often guilty of cluttering up the kitchen/dining table with keys, mail and magazines. Â Food fuels satisfaction, so keep the table clear for romantic moments of sensuous feasting or unwinding with a good meal at the end of the day.
Idea: Make a proper place for keys, mail and magazines.
Â Create a place for each of these items.Â Put an attractive key rack and a mail sorter near the front door, if possible.Â Use a basket or wicker box to drop magazines in when they arrive.Â In less than a minute you can reduce this common clutter.
Trouble Zone #4:Â The Clothes Closet
Women love to keep "skinny" clothes they`re never going to squeeze into again. Force yourself to go through your closet and if you haven`t worn it in a year or two donate it to the needy.
Â Women, why not have a fashion show?Â Invite a few close friends over and model your old favorites and if they don`t fit, you can pass them on friends who have always wanted to wear them.
