Three tips for eliminating clutter in your home or office

One of the biggest problems with managing space in the home, office, classroom, or other areas is organization and clutter, which go hand and hand. It’s difficult to be efficient in an office or happy in your home if clutter is always getting in your way.

1. Identify problem areas

The first step is identifying where, exactly, you have a problem. You may be having trouble with specific areas, like an overloaded memo-board or a cluttered kitchen table from the kids doing their homework there every day after school. Once you know where you have a problem, you can be more proactive about preventing messes and clutter in the first place.

If you are in an office, you can order customized office furniture to help organize a weak spot. You can even order a custom glass whiteboard to go with whatever dimension you need with this custom furniture.

2. Get adequate storage

The number one cause of clutter is that you don’t have anywhere to put things. The number one cause of disorganization is that you don’t have a good place to put things. If your space is suffering from these issues, it can be a great idea to invest in some adequate storage. Once you’ve identified your problem areas, figure out the right type of storage for that space.

A common problem that is overlooked is paper. Often, people don’t realize just how important it is to have a place to put paper. Sure, one piece of paper doesn’t take up too much space, but one piece of paper tends to attract more paper, and pretty soon you’re cluttered up by a disarray of memos, flyers, paperwork, and other documents. The other issue is that paper is easy to lose and misplace.

You can try file cabinets and similar products, but one of the best ways to keep track of important documents is to keep them separate and visible. Consider a clear dry erase board with magnetic glass you can tack documents just like with a bulletin board, except this board looks beautiful and with magnets, you don’t have to worry about pin holes in your paper.

3. Eliminate waste

One of the best ways to get rid of clutter is to eliminate waste before it accumulates. Many offices are going digital, which can cut down on clutter’s main offender. Glass whiteboards can also help here by reducing the need for paper: instead of sending out holiday party invites or memos, flyers, and other documents, write your announcements on a sleek clear dry erase board in a place where everyone in the office can see.
