Let’s be real: We’ve all kept junk we won’t ever use or need. Too much clutter, though, will ruin your life.

The solution: Be more conscientious about the items you keep, and declutter your stuff on a regular basis.

When it comes down to organizing, you’re only making things harder on yourself if you don’t part with those old, out-of-date items that you’ll simply have no use for.

Take the time to decide what to store and what to toss. Invest in a paper shredder to get rid of those piles of junk mail and bills that can’t just be thrown away.

Also, look for ways to remove clutter in problem areas like your bathroom. By minimizing the overall amount of stuff you have in your home, you’ll be making your organizing plans much smoother and easier. Less is more.

2. Make the most of limited space

The most essential tip in organizing your home is to make the best use of your free space.  Instead of piling up your books and magazines on the floor, add in some space-saving book storage. And free up some floor space in your closet with convenient shoe racks.

We’ve also offered a few next-level ways to organize your kitchen cabinets, drawers, and pantry. In more cozy areas, think outside the box. Use an over-the-door shoe organizer to store your knick knacks and other supplies — without wasting any floor space.

3. Turn less frequently-used items into home decor

Love snowboarding, surfing, or playing hockey?

These are just a few examples of activities you can do to stay active and fit, but they also require you to store large equipment that can lead to clutter. Instead of tossing your snowboard in your closet, turn your equipment into part-time art.

You can also install wall mounts for bicycles, guitars, painting supplies, computer monitors, and plenty of other equipment. Look to make the most use of your everyday supplies by incorporating them into your home decor!

4. Let MakeSpace store your extra stuff
