13 Organizing Solutions for Conquering Clutter
Simple strategies for containing the uncontainable. By Nicole Sforza
Designate a low drawer or cupboard in the kitchen and store toys in clear plastic bins next to your pet’s food and treats. If you would rather keep toys accessible, repurpose a container that matches your aesthetic. Country cottage? Use a lined rattan hamper or basket. (Household Essentials round laundry basket, $58, homedepot.com.) Then you can wash the liner when you need to. Modern? Try a glossy enamel tub meant for drinks, says Danielle Wurth, an organizer in Scottsdale, Arizona (wurthorganizing.com). It will be easy to wipe clean. (White beverage tub, $20, target.com.) If your home has more than one level, Brady suggests keeping a container on each floor.
