The garage is the place where most people throw things when cleaning the house for guests, and it is home to all items that aren’t immediately useful. It makes sense to store things like holiday decorations in the garage, because they are only used once a year and in the meantime you want them out of the way.

So what are the options to keep your shoes organized and stored in the smallest possible space?  Read the rest of this entry »

Affordable Closet Organizer Tips

Getting Rid of Clutter: You Can Do It!

The definition of clutter is a personal one. In general, clutter is an unorganized or unused collection of things. Some people think that nicknacks or papers sitting on the table are clutter. And all those gifts and candles that you just didn’t know what to do with so you put them on the shelf - that can be clutter too.
