A relaxing home or office enables a person to be more receptive, productive and full of zest so it follows that to be stress free, be clutter free. Removing unnecessary (may not be all) things at home like files that hasn’t been used for over a year or two, because chances are you won’t use it anymore so it goes to the toss box. Old books, old kitchen utensils, used clothing; old toys may be donated to goodwill.
And the remaining things will be organized by grouping them according to its use. You may keep them in color coded boxes or storage cabinets. In my case, my storage cabinets are color coded like for my extra kitchen gadgets, I store them in my yellow rimmed cabinets, my tools goes to the blue one, my kids toys goes to the cabinet with black and white stripes on the rim. Storage cabinets really come in handy when it comes to organizing a space that is too small for so many things. Somehow, this may not be appropriate in your home as we have different settings but at least you have the idea on practicing segregation so it wouldn’t be hard to locate things especially the small ones.
