Four Hidden Clutter Caches in Your Home
Did you know that clutter can accumulate even in the neatest of homes? Families with minimal clutter can benefit from de-cluttering in unexpected spaces. In fact, storage solutions often amass the most unnecessary items, becoming a seemingly organized catch-all.
Consider removing clutter from these storage areas around the home.
Filing Cabinets – While an effective filing system is necessary for saving important documents, take time periodically to remove papers that you are no longer required to keep.
Pantries – Once a month, clear your pantry of expired food products, specialty items you no longer have use for, or non-expired items you want to donate.
Bookshelves – Avid readers have difficulty letting go of books. Scan your bookcase for a few books each year that you might lend to friends or donate. Pack away or donate collections you are not actively adding to.
Computers – Digital storage is one of the biggest culprits of clutter. Condense or delete unnecessary folders and files to free up cyberspace.
