Organizing Challenge 101: More Stuff then Storage



There are many reasons why people have disorganization in their homes and offices, but one of the most common reasons is that in a particular space there is "more stuff then storage." There are two basic solutions:
Reduce the Stuff
If you can't or don't want to add storage units, then you must reduce the stuff in that space.  To reduce the stuff, you can:
  • Donate it
  • Recycle it
  • Trash it
  • Sell it
  • Store it elsewhere
If you are not emotionally ready to let an item go, store it elsewhere in the home such as an attic or basement.   If after six months you haven't seen these items or thought about these items, it may be easier for you to then donate, throw-away, recycle or sell.
Add Storage
If you can't or don't want to reduce the stuff in the room, then you need to add storage units to keep objects from becoming clutter.  Clutter tends to build-up on flat surfaces, including the floor.  Storage units can be shelves, drawers, cabinets, and closet rods.  Think about going vertical!
