But how can you decide what is and is not clutter and how can you reduce clutter?
Reducing clutter is easy you just have to know simple solutions in order to get your things organized.
The number one place to find clutter is in the closet. This classic storage area may start of containing on type of thing like coats and winter clothes but then because of location and convince you might find yourself having to go through a stack of magazines to be able to pull out your galoshes on a winter day. Finding storage solutions that work for you is key to reducing clutter especially with n a closet. Some closets have a shelf at the top of them but if your does not, put one in. And don’t just stop there. Purchase stackable bins that you can label and place on the shelves. One might be labeled gloves, the other might be pictures and one might be those magazines that you swear you are going to read one day. Also, keep in mind that reducing clutter is also about getting rid of the things that you do not use. Are you really going to get around to reading those old magazines or are they just piling up? A good solution might be to go through the magazines and cut out the articles that you would like to keep and place them in a binder by using clear plastic sleeves. Maybe you are a do-it-yourselfer and you are keeping one magazine because they give detailed instructions on how to build that gazebo you’ve always wanted.
Well, now you have a clever way to keep the information you want but remain clutter free.
Under the bed is another clutter nightmare. Shoes, memory boxes, bedding, it all seems like there is no where else to keep this stuff. Well, if you have done your job right in the closet, you may have just gained a place. But, you can also find simple solutions to your storage problem here too. Purchase bed lifts to maximize the space you have under your bed for storage. You can also try using space bags to hold your seasonal bedding. Space bags allow you to suck all of the air out of the bag so that the bag and bedding within it becomes smaller and easier to store. Bins that have wheels on them and easily slide out from under your bed is also an easy way to store items but still keep them close at hand.
Again reducing clutter is about assessing the items you have an figuring out if it is worth keeping them. Ask yourself questions about the item. Have you used it within the past year? Do you have another one that is possibly better then this one? Is it broken? Are you keeping this item because it makes you feel guilty? It is out of style and therefore no longer worth keeping? These questions can be hard to answer sometimes but when you stay focused on having a nice, clean, organized living environment, I am sure that you will be able to be honest with yourself and get rid of the things that you really do need to get rid of.

*** How to Kill the "Clutter Bug" ***
Carol was frantic. She had searched high and low for the brown envelope. She was 100% certain that she had put the envelope on the stack of bills that had taken up permanent residence on the island in her kitchen.
That simple little brown envelope that everyone would recognize if they saw it. Even though many people now used automatic deposit for their tax refunds, a number of us still prefer to see that envelope and light blue check.
That kitchen island was totally covered with a gazillion other pieces of paper in addition to that stack of bills.
When she couldn't find it there she moved on to the "junk drawer" where stuff that wasn't that important was stuck - no luck. She moved in to the master bedroom where all things considered "important" usually ended up on top of one dresser or another.
No luck. After hours of searching every possible or impossible nook and cranny of her house she finally threw herself down at the kitchen table, head in hands and sobbed uncontrollably. She couldn't believe she had lost several thousands dollars that the family desperately needed.
She reached into her purse hanging off the chair to grab a tissue. 'Lo and behold, a tiny corner of a brown envelope was sticking out of her wallet. Yes, there it was all along safe and sound.
How many of us can relate? Have you ever had that gut-wrenching feeling that hits when you misplaced something important? Perhaps your story isn't as serious as Carols but it's still important, especially to you.
We are all guilty of some type of carelessness. And, if we are honest, it's probably associated with some amount of "clutter." Whether, it's in the kitchen, living room or even the bathroom, it can take it's toll.
Most people who suffer from stress don't associate that stress with clutter. But, think about it! How organized and coherent can our thoughts and actions possibly be if we are surrounding ourselves with massive amounts of disorganization and clutter?
Bad habits have a tendency to migrate to all areas of our personal and professional lives. Clutter can be one of the worse habits to acquire. Short of bulldozing our homes and offices, is there anything else we can do to overcome this mess?
Is there a solution for Carol's problem?
As a matter of fact there is. We have a tendency to hang on to a trend that began thousands of years ago when we were all "hunter-gatherers." Now, that is no longer a problem, but we still operate as hunters (bargain shoppers included) and gatherers ( we might need it "someday.")
