Tackle storage solutions, do deep cleaning and create routines to make every room in your house clutter-free.
Wait, stop. Do you really need to keep that item you’re about to put into storage?
From a calmer mind to a more workable closet, the benefits of streamlining are just a few trash bags away
Put everything that comes into your house away immediately. (And, yes, the recycling bin is a viable option for that junk mail.) Keep your on-the-go items—coat, bag, keys, et cetera—in one place. And if you have a second story, always take something that needs to go up every time you walk upstairs.
Not only will a big purge make you and your family feel more organized, but it can also be great for the mind. Physical clutter can cause stress and leave you less focused. Plus, with fewer things taking up space in your home, you’ll have more room to display the things that bring you joy. In other words, it’s time to Marie Kondo your home.
Storing all the items in your home doesn’t have to be rocket science. There are many ways to store and organize your things without just throwing them in drawers or paying a bill to keep items in a storage unit. Finding neat, simple ways to save space and stash household items big and small will help you keep your home tidy, make finding things easier, and help you avoid losing them in piles of clutter.
You may think that you don’t have time to organize your office, but if you really knew how much time that disorganization cost you, you’d reconsider. Rearranging and moving piles occasionally doesn’t count. Neither does clearing off your desk, if you swipe the mess into a bin, or a desk drawer. A relatively neat and orderly office space clears the way for higher productivity and less wasted time.
