15 Clutter Busting Routines For Any Family
Now hubby, 4 pets and still chaos! My husband and I are constantly trying to purge and remove items that we feel are unnecessary. We feel pressure from parents to hold on to things that we really do not want to have to hold on to. We have a ridiculous amount already. We used to have a bunch of coffee cups, too many. So a number of years ago I designated a shelf for coffee cups.
I let everyone in the family pick their favorites and once the shelf was full that was it. About kids toys: one plan I know of is to allow the child to keep toys received as gifts birthday, Christmas for one month along with the others.

Then the child must select something to remove. This is a replacement approach. Books and musical instruments can be excluded. Great idea! You might even want to have your kids go through their things prior to Christmas or their birthdays in anticipation of new toys. When my sister and I started working one morning a week at the local food pantry we decided to bring some things that we no longer needed. That was over a year ago and wow, what a great motivator it has been! We now bring something almost every week.
They flew off the free shelf.

I am really trying to get the wife to reduce decorations — even Christmas tree. I love Christmas but hate shopping and Christmas tree is the concept to buy more stuff to put under. Our latest shed is also a pavilion—and you can build it, too! The back of a door that opens into a utility room or closet makes a handy hanging space. Add construction adhesive for hollow-core doors.

Cut the plywood 3 or 4 in. Now you can mount as many hooks, magnets and other storage gizmos as you like. Want more behind the door storage? Check out these inside-cabinet door storage ideas. All you need to gain a lot of hanging space in your closet is two metal closet brackets and a length of closet rod.
If your existing closet rod is at least 66 in. We placed the top of the rod 35 in. Tool aprons can be modified to store nearly any household item. Just sew a variety of pocket widths in the aprons, then mount the aprons by screwing a wood strip through the top of each and into a door.
For hollow-core doors, use hollow anchor fasteners to hold the screws firmly to the door. Here are a couple of clever ways to use leftover gutter parts. Build small bins with the scrap gutter lengths, end caps and corner pieces. Mount the bins to a wall or workbench edge to hold parts and tools or serve as a dustbin. Or, screw downspout sections to a board and mount it on the wall to store wood dowels, bar stock and other long, thin items. Paint it the color of your wall and it will virtually disappear.
