Excess Isn’t Always The Cause Of Clutter?

Cause of Clutter

You might be great at practicing the “one in, one out” rule, or simply keeping only what you use—but your home or office may still be cluttered. Here is how to keep things organized when excess isn’t the cause of your clutter.

Take A Few Extra Minutes Each Day

Nothing feels better than coming home after a long day. While it is tempting to walk in toss your coat on the chair, mail on the counter, and shopping bags by the door—don’t let them sit there for long. Take the time you need to say hello to your spouse, kids, and fur babies, then put everything you just brought home in its designated place.

Optimize Your Space

Whether you are in a small city apartment, or a spacious home—your cause of clutter could be due in part to improperly optimized space. If you are short on closets and storage, invest in furniture and shelving systems that provide more storage. Also, head to your local home organization store to check out the impressive options in item and space-specific organization accessories.

Last but not least, schedule quarterly full-house sweeps to toss or donate the items you don’t want, need, or use. If it is easier, just do one room or closet every month to keep things under control—and resist the urge to just pop excess in the garage.
