Clutter creates chaos. When I walk into a room that is neat, where everything has its place, it is calming and peaceful. When I walk into a room where junk is lying around and is very cluttered, I feel anxious and the chaos is palpable.
The reason that clutter accumulates is because there is no system for keeping a space de-cluttered. When everything has a place, a space can be kept clutter-free. It may take a while, but you can create a system to stop clutter by using organization and storage solutions. Whatever the room or space, there are plenty of solutions.
Be creative and recycle or repurpose some existing items (storage boxes, furniture, etc.) you can find around your home. Think out of the box and you'll find a wonderful solution to all your clutter problems. And if you can't, give me a call. ;-)
