Piles of paper on the kitchen counter, cables strewn about the living room and a counter that’s buried in creams and cosmetics. Oh, and you can’t find your keys either. Sound familiar? It might be time to clear your home of clutter.If you’re tired of spending time looking for what you need, here are a few quick and easy ways to help you get organized and clear your home.

Identify Clutter Hot Spots

Certain areas in your home are more prone to gathering pile-ups than others. It’s important to identify these spots and then find a solution to battle the clutter. Consider purchasing a decorative basket to hold items you would like to have at your fingertips. While a basket can organize chaos for a while, remember that it will need frequent checks to avoid getting messy.


Purge ruthlessly and do it often. Don’t waste valuable space by storing items that you will probably never use. Go through your things and think about the last time you used it, why you’re keeping it, and if it would be more useful somewhere else. If something no longer serves a purpose, it’s time to get rid of it.

Sentimental Items

We all have important keepsakes and heirlooms that we don’t want to get rid of. If you don’t have the heart to part with your wedding dress or your baby’s clothes, the Alluster butlers can keep these items safe and stored, ready for whenever you need them.

Do A Little Every Day

Giving yourself a mere 15 minutes every day to clear clutter will make your life easier and tidier. In those 15 minutes, avoid your phone, computer and television in order to focus on the task at hand. Try to deal with little things immediately. When you’ve finished your meal, clean the dishes right away instead of letting them sit in the sink. File bills and recycle junk mail immediately instead of letting the paper sit on the kitchen counter. If you don’t let things pile up, your home will be tidier, and cleaning up will be less of a daunting task.

Make Use of Unused Space

Be creative and look at unused space for storage potential. Add hooks over doors, place baskets on closet floors, bulletin boards on office walls and storage bins under your bed. There are so many opportunities to transform wasted space into a storage solution.
