Get Organized: Five Solutions To Clear Your Home Of Unsightly Clutter
  • Opening Intro -

    Clutter is the enemy of households for many people. Whether you're a family of five or living single, no matter what you do, items seem to quickly build up over time.


Here’s five simple ways to help prevent clutter from taking over your home.

Child Brag Books

Your child’s artwork can easily cover refrigerators and most every other surface in your home. Consider creating a brag book that allows you to still feature your child’s creations without plastering your home with paper. Use plastic protective sheets in a binder for a simple solution.

Clear Bins

Storage bins help hide away clutter in stackable boxes, but you can’t always tell what’s inside them. Consider switching your colored or cardboard boxes to clear storage bins. These bins are especially helpful for boxes that store several of the same item, such as shoes. Glue a small erase board to the front of each box to easily document and change the label.

Backs of Doors

The backs of your doors are some of the most wasted spaces in homes. For example, closet doors can easily be transformed into extra storage space by adding hooks or pegs. The backs of kitchen cabinets can be utilized through drilling small hooks for measuring cups and spoons. This gets the items out of your everything drawers and more organized. Just be sure to drill hooks where items will not prevent the doors from closing completely.

The Donation Box

Sometimes clutter builds because you’re too busy to downsize what you already have or no longer need. Maintain a visual reminder to declutter by making a donation box. Having a specific place to store things you want to donate will help ensure you actually donate the items, rather than having them sit around the house and take up more space.

Storage Unit

Some items are too sentimental to give up or throw away. You may also have items that are only used a few times a year. In these cases, a storage unit is your best friend. Renting a storage unit satisfies the need to hold on to sentimental items while not having them clutter your living space. A storage unit is also a great for storing other items you only use on a seasonal basis, such as lawn mowers or snow blowers.

While these ideas are helpful for reducing clutter, the only way to permanently reduce clutter in your home is to regularly donate or throw away items you no longer need. Remember, even small steps can make a huge difference over time.
