Put everything you want to keep back in it’s proper place.
A big part of the reason why homes become cluttered is simply because things are constantly being put in the wrong place or left in the ‘drop zone’ (usually some random horizontal surface).
So why not take the extra minute to put things away in their proper place as soon as you're done using them? This way, clutter doesn’t have a chance to accumulate in the first place.
Invest in storage solutions.
There are so many great storage solutions available that can help you get your clutter under control. Storage bins, baskets, shelves, and even furniture with built-in systems can help you keep your home organized and clutter-free.
Don’t forget to label!
Designate a place for everything. Make sure that you have designated a spot for everything in your home.
This means having a proper space for your keys, your purse, mail, and anything else that you regularly use.
Once you have a spot for everything, it will be much easier to keep your home organized and will also help you keep things from getting lost or misplaced.
This can actually save you money because you won’t have to buy duplicate items that you misplaced somewhere in your clutter.
