9 Decluttering Secrets From Professional Organizers
Nine smart strategies spotted in (and stolen from) the houses of expert clutter-busters. Chalk it up to experience—they really work.
A Well-Occupied Wall
Short on cupboards? Get things out in the open. New York City prop stylist Erin Swift is a fan of displaying everyday dishes
against a well-marked chalkboard wall. The dark backdrop allows you to clearly (and cutely) indicate a home for each item,
encouraging others (not you!) to help restock once the dishwasher is finished. Draw outlines of shapely pieces if you’re the
artistic type, or just say it like it is, with words.
