Five Organizing Products Your Home Must Have
The wrong organizing products create clutter and disorganization and make you feel that creating order and style in your home is really in the too hard basket.
So the big question is:
Are you being driven nuts with the wrong organizing products?
You may have too many of the wrong product, not enough of the right ones and plenty of containers that are the wrong size, wrong color and create the wrong look.
Chronic disorganization and mess can be a result of dysfunctional storage and using the wrong home organizational product.
So let’s look at a new definition of clutter. Clutter can be things you always use but are in a chronic mess.
Clutter is also having too many items in a space. Overstuffing, overcrowding and inconvenience can be the result of poor storage.
Getting the right storage container, one that fits the space and organizes your possessions is crucial.
So how can you zero in on the most important organizing products that will organize what you own and keep everything at your fingertips?
Home Organization Products You Don’t Need
The first step is to clear out the old, damaged and useless to make room for the new. You can rethink, reuse or recycle some of the storage you own.
The no brainer throw aways
No brainer throw aways are cardboard boxes that only have one or two items or are damaged in some way.
Excess jars that are too small to use, bags, damaged storage items such as plastic boxes with holes or any cloth hold alls that have holes.
Caddy’s that only add clutter not organization, plastic containers that are too small to hole anything and any item you just don’t like you can recycle.
Baskets that are too large, take up too much room and just get filled up with junk can be donated and found a new home.
Get Rid of what is Unattractive
Don’t live with what you don’t love.
Too much choice often results in clutter. Declutter the wrong home organizing product choices and recycle them. Let go of the color, shape and size that you don’t like.
