But don't let it run your life. These tips are a great place to start for controlling the clutter in your home.
Keep those large toys off the floor by hanging them in the garage or inside a large closet. Source
Attach jars to the underside of shelves for storing small items. Use them in the garage for nuts and bolts, the craft room for buttons and beads, the kids room for small toys, and the laundry room for clothes pins. Source
A simple dollar store basket and a couple command hooks can be used in almost every area of your home. Here are a few ideas I cam up with. Please feel free to leave your own ideas in the comments below. Source
- Hang them on the inside of your closet door to hold scarves, gloves, belts hats, and lingerie.
- Place a couple in your pantry to corral snacks, powder drinks, chips, and crackers.
- Use one under the bathroom sink to hold rubber gloves and other cleaning items, extra hand towels, or the kids bath toys.
- A few on the wall in the garage would be perfect for small garden tools, tape and wire, smaller sport accessories (goggles, cleats, etc...)
- Hang one up in the laundry room to hold dryer sheets or stain removers.
When looking for storage options don't forget about rolling storage. The cart in the photo acts as a mobile office that can be stored in a closet or pushed into a corner to make room for guests. Rolling carts can also be used for storing your mixer and baking items. Just roll it to the counter when you need to bake. Source
