Getting clutter under control can seem like an impossible feat. However, with the right tools you can finally conquer it. But before we give you the names of products that will help demystify your clutter conundrum, you need to consider the grand scheme of the "clutter issue." Otherwise, your clutter-busting tools may inadvertently become part of the problem!
If you want to tackle clutter, you have to come up with your own system of doing so. It usually helps to go into it with the mindset that you are going to do 1 of 3 things with every item:
- Keep it;
- Give it; or
- Toss it/recycle it.
If you decide to keep anything, then you must be sure that it will have its own place. If that requires purchasing or designing your own organizational system, then do it. There is no point trying to bust clutter in your home if you aren't going to keep it organized.
If you decide to give it away, do it right away. The longer you wait and keep it around, the more chance it will end up back where it was. Pack it up or bag it up and put it in your car so that it's ready to be given away.
