Sifting Through Treasures. Residents should go through every item in the house to see if it is truly needed or not. Getting rid of excess things by donating them to charity is a great way to reduce the overall amount of objects that need to find a new place within the home. For example, some people have an abundance of books they no longer read or more toys than their child can actually play with. Put aside the pieces that are frequently used and the ones that have sentimental value and de-clutter by dropping the rest off at a nearby thrift store.
If you have a home office, a sturdy metal storage cabinet is a safe place to store your specialized, expensive supplies and equipments. Fire resistance units will add security for your stored items. To optimize your storage unit, you can add stand alone storage containers. If you need a way to organize your disks, a metal CD rack is an inexpensive addition.
