Interior Design :: Clutter Solutions
If your room is a cluttered mess of clothes, magazines, make-up and sports gear, then you'd better get organized before your 'rents get on your back!
Before you start making your room clutter-free, you'll have to do some serious cleaning. Decide what you want to throw away, what you want to give away and what you want to put away in storage. Maybe you can convince your 'rents to have a garage sale so you can at least make a few bucks off your unwanted items - after all, one man's junk is another man's treasure.
If your closet is so crowded that you can't even close the doors, then fold any outdated clothes into boxes and ship them off to the basement. If you're not blessed with a walk-in closet, then you may want to buy a closet organizer to make the most of the limited space in smaller closets. That way, you can hang up the clothes you wear everyday, put sweaters and hats in the drawers and store school bags and sports gear on the shelves. Also, don't forget about the valuable space area behind your bedroom door. You can buy a hanging shoe organizer and a CD holder to keep your kicks and tunes within arms reach.
Are your walls bare and boring, but your floor is so cluttered that you have trouble walking around your room? Then start organizing the photos and albums that are piled up beside your stereo. Taping snapshots of your family and friends on your walls will be a huge space-saver, as well as a memorable way to decorate your room. And before you recycle all those old magazines that are lying around, cut out a few cool pics of celebs and your fave athletes.
