Clearing Clutter In The Kitchen Once And For All By Marilyn Bohn

As a professional organizer I work with women and seniors clearing clutter in their kitchens. This is a problem room for many people. Clearing clutter can be done pretty easy if it is done a little at a time and isn’t allowed to get out of control. One great idea that works well in clearing clutter in kitchens is to have a place for everything and after using them put the items away in their “homes”. Another idea in clearing clutter in the kitchen is to start in one small space instead of going cupboard to cupboard and drawer to drawer trying to organize everything at once. Let’s start with the silverware drawer. Take everything out and wipe out the silverware holder. Look at everything in the drawer; does it still work for you? Are there rusted pieces or bent pieces? If so, toss them. Are there other cooking gadgets in the drawer? If so is there room for containers for them to live in so they don’t just roll around. When they are contained they will seem to take up less space and other things won’t be thrown in the drawer. I can’t stand a sink full of dishes or dishes left all over the counter. It looks so messy. One simple way to make clearing clutter a breeze in the kitchen is to keep the counters and sink free of dishes. Of course this sounds easy, but is it easy to do? After using a dish, load it in the dishwasher instead of putting it in the sink. By keeping the dishwasher unloaded so everyone can load their own plates keeps clearing clutter to a minimum. Clearing clutter is less work if it is done a little at a time. If you have a pantry, cupboards in an island and cupboards all around the walls start in just one place. In the pantry or on the cupboard shelves labeling the shelves with what goes there may help family members know where items are to be put back so they won’t be chucked in corners and on top of things. I only have two drawers so I have to limit what I keep in them. One drawer is only 6” wide and the other one is 12” wide. I am always on the lookout for things that don’t belong. (That sounds like a Sesame Street song doesn’t it?) I do that because my space is limited.

When there isn’t enough space we simply need to pare down. And sometimes that means removing things that don’t belong in the kitchen and taking them to the rooms where they do belong. If you use the table for projects or the kids use it for home work those items don’t have to stay in the kitchen. They can be removed to their rooms or to an office. Set up a routine for clearing clutter off the table after the project is finished or at the end of the night before bedtime. Find convenient locations for everything you want to keep in your kitchen. For the things you use everyday keep them in the easiest to reach places. For other items used only once a week or month place them on other shelves where they are convenient to reach, but are out of your way. Clearing clutter in the kitchen can start with everything having a home, putting things away after use, keeping the counters clear of dishes and the items in the kitchen being convenient so they can be easily put away.

Letting Go of Clutter In Your Office By Angie Dixon

Letting Go of Clutter In Your Office by: Angie Dixon Some people would say I’m the last person in the world to be writing about clearing out clutter; I seem to accumulate so much of it. But I also get rid of it, when it reaches the point of bothering me. That’s the first thing about clearing out clutter. Everyone has a threshold at which the clutter starts to bother them. My husband’s threshold is much lower than mine, and when he starts clearing out, I jump in and help him. But in my office, things go to my threshold and no further—usually. Recognizing your threshold and working within it is the first key to letting go of clutter. If it’s really not bothering you, and you can find everything you need, it’s not essential to tackle it right away. The second key to letting go of clutter is to bring the recycle bin (for paper without staples) and the large kitchen trash can (for everything else) into your office and put them beside the desk, which is clutter central in most offices. Get a box of manila file folders, a box of hanging file folders, and a plastic file box, the kind with a handle that you can get for about ten bucks at a big office supply store. And a pen. Pick up every piece of paper off your desk, one sheet or sheaf at a time. Start with paper because there’s usually more of it than anything else. Don’t touch anything twice. When you pick it up either put it in the recycle bin (remove staples first), put it in the trash if it can’t go in the recycle, or put it in a folder, label the folder, and put the folder, inside a hanging folder, in the plastic file box. Don’t worry about organizing the files. Just get everything out of site and off your desk. Get two or three boxes if you need them. They stack nicely out of the way against the wall. Once the paper is off your desk, you should be able to see the surface, which will probably be littered with books, pens, soda cans, memo pads, and CDs, if it looks anything like my desk. Take one category at a time, like CDs, and put all of them away. Then books, and so on. The rest of your office may be cluttered in the same way as your desk, with stacks of papers and books scattered around. Use the same method. Start with the paper, don’t touch anything twice, and declutter by category—CDs, books, etc. after the paper. De-cluttering doesn’t have to mean deep-cleaning, though you may get motivated and do that. Really it just means getting the clutter out of the way so you can work. Letting go of it is as simple as realizing you don’t need it where it is right this minute, and putting it somewhere else—even if that somewhere else is the recycle bin. A good rule of thumb is, if you can get that piece of paper again, especially by printing it off your computer, you don’t need to keep it. Now, you might, if it’s important. But just use this as a rule of thumb. Happy clearing!
