The cheapest way to organize your home is to THROW AWAY THE CLUTTER!

WHAT should you throw away?
Here’s a handy list of 50 items that are cluttering your home that you should throw away RIGHT NOW:
Here’s another list of clutter items you can throw away right now:
Bathrooms are usually one of the most disorderly rooms in the house – I know mine can be an absolute disaster!
Among the many things that clutter your space in your bathrooms are makeup, toiletries, jewelry, hair accessories, brushes, etc etc ETC. There are a number clutter organization ideas specifically designed for bathrooms that you should know about.
To reduce clutter, put all bath products and shampoos on an inexpensive shelf or in cheap dollar store bins under your sink.
Also consider buying a cabinet that fits in the space above the toilet tank.
Clutter organization is NOT your goal – reducing clutter IS…
Use the space above the toilet to store essential items like toilet paper and cleaning products. Reduce clutter on counter tops by arranging small items like hair clips, elastic bands, Q-tips, toothbrushes etc in pretty jars.
If you don’t have enough storage, buy a cabinet to hold your makeup. This can be fitted beneath the vanity, for instance. Put all medicines in one cabinet, placed high above the sink where it can’t be reached by small children.
Laundry is a major cause of disorder and mess in bedrooms, bathrooms and closets. Effective clutter organization ideas can help you to clean the clutter of clothes thrown all over the floors and declutter the clothes in your closet.
Purchase some flat baskets for all bedrooms and use them as laundry hampers. The baskets should be short enough to fit under the beds. Use one laundry basket for whites and another for colors. At bedtime, pull out the baskets and tell everyone to throw their dirty clothes into them then shove them back under the bed. On laundry day, collect the baskets and take them with you so you can fold each person’s clean clothes into their basket. Place the baskets with the clean clothes on the beds.
It’s important to involve your family (especially children) in your clutter organization efforts.
Ask each person to put away their clothes and put the empty basket back under the bed. If you follow these guidelines, you will easily reduce clutter on bedroom and bathroom floors. To encourage your children to declutter and organize their rooms, you could put little treats or special surprises in the laundry baskets, among the folded clothes.
If you have a large family, you may have resigned yourself to the eternal mess in the family room or living room.
Try these clutter organization tricks and you will easily reduce clutter in living areas. At the end of the day, before everyone leaves the living room for bed, take five minutes to walk around the room with a trash can, asking each person to pick up some trash off the floor and throw it in.
Keeping your house clean is not just YOUR job – get the kids involved, too!
Cleaning the clutter on furniture surfaces and coffee table tops can also be quick and simple.
Get a nice-looking basket to put beneath the coffee table and simply sweep all the mess off the tabletop and into the basket.
This takes no time at all, and household members will know where to look for anything they need.
A really wonderful clutter organization solution is pockets specially made to fit over the sides of couches, recliners and armchairs. You can use these to put away remotes, magazines and other items to de-clutter and organize much-used living areas.
As you can see, it really isn’t very difficult or time-consuming to declutter your home if you use appropriate clutter organization ideas for each part of the house. Once you have implemented these ideas, it’s imperative to get your whole family involved in the effort. When you reduce clutter you will also free up a lot of space in your home, making it easier to keep clean.
