Recycle & Donate

Recycle old furniture by reupholstering it, using it outdoors, giving it a new life. Donate clothes, home supplies you never use. Honestly estimate the number of times you used this or that thing so you could really see if it’s necessary or is just a junk in your basement.

Organize All Spaces

From kitchen to kids room make sure there are proper organization and storage systems that allow preventing clutter in the living space. Opt for side tables with drawers and multipurpose furniture. By the way, the furniture with the hidden storage space helps keep things out of sight preventing clutter.

Organize by Frequency of Use

Keep the often used things at hand to be able to reach them in a moment. All the other stuff should have its place but if it’s not used often it can be stored in a basement, attic, closet and under the stairs. Leave the highest and the lowest shelves and drawers for things used less often.

Stick to Necessary Things
