Fellas, this one’s for you!

Inside the Modern Man Cave

Modern man caves are more sophisticated than the man caves of yesterday. Consider these four points when designing a sanctuary for the man of the house.

A space with a purpose – Plan the space around the interests and hobbies of the primary person using it. Any room from the garage to basement to outdoor patio can be transformed into a man cave with the proper design and furnishings. Don’t be afraid to get creative.

Style and comfort – Man caves are no longer a storage unit for the broken furniture from your college dorm. Unify the space around a color pallet, style or theme for an inviting atmosphere. If the space is going to be used for entertaining, invest in plenty of comfortable seating.

Outfit with tech – Smart technology is becoming more popular in these spaces, so you can easily automate your lights, air flow and sound system. Don’t forget details such as streaming services or cable packages that you’ll need to host all of the big games. A refrigerator and microwave also help avoid the need to continually run to the main kitchen for refreshments.

Inviting for everyone – They’re still referred to as “man caves,” but posting a “no girls allowed” sign on the door is definitely faux pas. A modern man cave commonly doubles as a quiet retreat to relax solo, as well as a gathering spot for a group of friends.

De-clutter your house, de-clutter your mind!

Desperate helpless woman in messy room home.

De-Clutter Before You Move

Moving to a new home can seem daunting when you look over the piles of clutter you’ve accumulated. Don’t let the quantity of what you have to pack overwhelm you. Instead, prepare for your next adventure by getting rid of the old to make space for the new.

Start piles.
You have three options when it comes to cleaning: keep, throw away and donate. If you can’t move without it, keep it. If it’s broken or unusable, throw it away or recycle it. If you no longer have a need for the item but it’s in usable condition, donate it. Simplifying your options makes the process quicker.

Don’t procrastinate!
Start early. If you know you are moving several months in advance, don’t wait to start organizing and packing. Using the pile system, you can start organizing your “stuff” so the task never feels too overwhelming.

Prioritize over time.
Categorize your lengthy to-do list into themed days and weeks, such as “donate week,” “clean-out-the-closets week,” and “box-up-the-kitchen day.” Then tackle those days and weeks one at a time. Work backwards so you’re packing and storing items you use less often first. You don’t want to pack all your bath towels weeks before your move!

Don’t weigh down your boxes.
Remember, a human is going to have to move each of these boxes, so don’t weigh them down. Pack lighter items in with heavier items, and go for more boxes with fewer items inside. If it’s a local move, don’t forget to utilize totes, suitcases and laundry baskets you already own to transport household items.
