YOUR BIG AUTUMN ORGANISATION BLITZ!
Now is the perfect time to clear the clutter and get everything sorted. Trust us, you’ll feel so much better… And the good news is it’s as easy as A, B, C!
Our ABC guide to giving your home a big sort-out
Repeat after us… do not simply stick everything in the loft! In fact, make this the year you clear out the attic. Be ruthless – if you haven’t missed it, you probably don’t need it. And remember, unless you’ve had your attic converted and it’s climate-controlled, it will be subject to extremes of temperature and fluctuating humidity. Think carefully about what you store up there.
BANISH JUNK EMAIL
The new GDPR online rules may have done a great job of clearing out the junk emails from your inbox but they will soon start building up again. So, why not let Cleanfox (cleanfox.io) or Unsubscriber (getunsubscriber.com) do the hard work for you? These services will scan your inbox and delete or unsubscribe from marketing emails.
So much home technology, so many ugly black wires! Use a cablewrap, such as the Masterplug 3m Cable Management Kit (£10.99, Argos) to keep them neat and tidy.
DITCH THE DIARY
Use Google Calendar so the whole family can access a digital diary. First, sign up to a free Gmail account (at google.com/calendar). Click on Settings from the drop-down menu next to My Calendars, then select Share to invite more Gmail accounts to join. If you have an Android device, the calendar will automatically sync to your phone or tablet calendar. If you have an iphone, you need to go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Add Account > Google and enter your username and password to set it up.
