how to organize your home

Out of sight, out of mind, or so the adage goes. But you can go on dumping the excess of daily life into drawers, piling it in the basement, or tossing it in a box for only so long.

Sooner or later, the drawers will get stuck; the basement walkway will disappear; the box will overflow. 

And the already space-crunched surfaces in your home will be teeming with stuff. What's the solution?

Begin by clearing out what you can, finding a place for what's left, and creating a system to organize the new things that come through your doors.

The tips and strategies below can help organize every room in your home.
