There are many ingenious organizing ideas and solutions for those who want to work on reducing their clutter. Fortunately, there are also some basic principles you can follow, if you don’t want to break a bank on products that are often pricey. Getting organized provides a sense of order and purpose in your life. In general, the less stuff you have the less crowded your space will be. Look to repurpose things that you don’t use anymore but may have a second life.
- Get rid of some of your items that you are no longer using. Hold a yard sale if you have to also.
- Find some bargain sales so that you can decorate your home and not break the bank.
- Re-purpose items such as packages that can be re-used and also keep jars and containers that are made of glass and plastic.
“Stores often sell bedding, curtains and office supplies in reusable containers. For instance, you could tape or glue several empty envelope boxes together. This creates an organizer with multiple narrow compartments you can use to sort and store small objects.”
