Nine smart strategies spotted in (and stolen from) the houses of expert clutter-busters. Chalk it up to experience—they really work.
Paperwork on Wheels
Kate S. Brown, an organizer in Sarasota, Florida, eases the pain of paperwork by making it mobile. A rolling office lets you
relocate to wherever the action is, so you can join the family, hang out by the TV, or even sit in the sunshine while you
sort and file. Another plus: The limited surface space holds only essentials, preventing clutter and prompting you to recycle
as you work.
