Getting Organized in a Tiny House

When living in a tiny house, it’s easy for just a little bit of clutter to end up clogging up your entire lifestyle. Just having a few things lying around can make your space seem smaller than it is and a lot messier than it should be. Fortunately, since your home is small, it should be easy to stay on top of things and keep your space neat and organize.

Here are a few tips on getting organized when living in a tiny house.

  • Purge and Tidy Often

After years of organizing our homes, we’ve come to the realization that it’s not our homes that are the problems, it’s that we have too much stuff!

It’s easy to get caught in thinking that you might need something someday. But, all too often, that day never comes, and you end up with stuff lying around your house that never gets used. When tidying your tiny home, be ruthless. You don’t have space very much and every inch needs to be used accordingly, so be sure that everything you keep is useful. The bottom line is that the very best way to keep your tiny home organized is to declutter and purge as much as possible

  • Free Up Floor Space

One of the most important tips you’ll hear from experts and people who live in tiny houses for sale in California is to keep your stuff of the floor. Consider putting up shelves where you can store things neatly. Not only does this make it easier to walk around a room, it also makes the area feel less cluttered and makes sweeping or vacuuming that much easier since you won’t have to move stuff around every time you want to clean your house.

  • Think Vertical

When you’re stuck with a limited amount of space, it’s important to make use of vertical space as much as possible. It’s probably obvious but things like vertical storage units, bunk beds and shelves work wonders to help you organize your stuff and keep things within easy access.

  • Be Picky About What You Bring in Your Tiny Home

This is one of the most important aspects of keeping your tiny house as organized as possible. However, we’ve all been there and know how easy it is walking down an aisle at a department store and want to buy almost every single thing that you see. And, we all know those family members and friends who mean well and always offer you their cool things when they’re getting rid of things.

It can be hard to say no to these things, but you must think about yourself first and avoid the temptation at all costs. Keep in mind that you don’t really have the room for these things and need to choose extra choosy about what you bring into your home unless of course, they offer some sort of intrinsic value that your home simply can’t do without.

If you’re considering buying something new, make sure that it can serve at least 2 functions and isn’t something that you already have. Another good thing to try and keep in mind is the one in, one out rule. Every time that you bring something new into your home, try and get rid of something old. This works great to keep your home up to date and not end up overfilling it with things that don’t get used.

Furthermore, before you buy something, take the time and think about where you’re going to put it. If you don’t have the room for it, or if it’s going to clutter up your space, it might be best to pass on buying it.

These are only a few ways in which you can work to keep your home organized. However, there are countless other ways to do this. Just keep in mind that you don’t want to crowd your space, or have it filled with things that don’t get used. Hopefully, by following these tips, in no time, your home will be as neat and organized as humanly possible.

5 Sleep techniques to try achieving a better night’s sleep

The art of a good night’s sleep

We have all had those nights where we cannot sleep, and we toss and turn for what seems like hours.  The are many reasons for those restless nights one of the most common being stress.  The worst thing is dozing off only to suddenly wake up a little while later.

5 Sleep techniques to try to achieve a good night’s sleep

#1           Try avoiding having a TV in your room or make sure it is completely off at nigh

A lot of people have TV’s in their rooms, this should be avoided.  The light and noise from the TV can cause visual stimulation.Although the TV can help you doze off leaving it on whilst you try to sleep is not a good idea and tends to lead to a distrustful night’s sleep.

#2           Leave the social media and phones at the bedroom door

Computers, mobile phones and smart devices are distractions that will not only keep you from going to sleep at a decent hour but can also disrupt your night sleep.If you need to keep your mobile phone next to your bed ensure it is in night mode and the buzzer is off.
Do not engage in any social media applications if you are going to do so at night try to limit your time on them.  Keep that time in the lounge and not your bedroom

#5           Keep it cool

If you are too hot you will toss and turn trying to find a cool spot.  It is always best to keep your rooms a little cooler with a fan.
Try not to have the fan directly on you though as that could cause you to get a dry mouth and or throat.

#4           Darkness encourages deeper sleep

Try to keep the room as dark as possible or at least wear an eye mask to block out any light.

#5           Reduce or block out the noise

Quiet is one of the top keys to a decent night sleep!

Conclusion

Sleep deprivation can lead to serious health and mental issues.  If the problem persists you should consult your doctor for advice.
Taking sleep remedies, unless the likes of a hot malt or milky drink, can lead to addiction and other more serious problems.  Never play with your health!

Could your pillow be causing your sleeping problems?

The frustration of sleep deprivation

Sometimes we just battle to sleep for what seemed no reason at all.  If it is one night, we are not too fussed as it happens!  But then one-night turns to two, two to three and next thing you know you have had a few weeks of bad sleep. The first thing we tend to think is that we have some weird sleep disorder!  But what most people do not realize is that sometimes sleep deprivation is not in your head but rather beneath it!

What the experts say about your pillow

  • Some people who complain about neck and back problems do not even realize that is could mainly be due to the incorrect positioning of and type of pillow they are sleeping on.
  • The elevation of a person pillow along with the firmness should be chosen by the way of your preferred sleeping positions.
  • People who sleep on their back should look at a thinner pillow. A thinner pillow will put the spine in a comfortable mid-line position.  This is ideal for those whole likes to sprawl out on their backs.
  • Side sleepers (which make up seventy-five percent of the population) need to look at both the length and width of their pillows. Especially for pregnant woman and people who suffer from hip pain.  A lot of side sleepers require almost full body support and a longer pillow that hugs the body is perfect.  It allows the person to be able to align their bodies and rest an arm and or a leg on the pillow

Conclusion

The next time you are having that restless toss and turn instead of trying to count sheep or grab a sleep remedy look at your pillow.  The correct pillow is just as important as the correct mattress for a good night’s sleep.
