Clutter Tips From Expert Peter Walsh

I was watching Peter Walsh, an organization expert, on the Oprah show, and he gave some pretty good tips for decluttering. I recently wrote about the places you should clean up in your house, but for more specific tips from Peter, read on:

  • Back, Not Front: When you buy groceries, put the new ones at the back of the storage space. That way, Peter says, you'll be sure to use up the old items before you get to the new ones, and "you'll never find yourself with food items that are out-of-date."
  • Clear Baskets: Have a place to keep everything whether it be in shelves or plastic containers. Use clear containers so that you'll be able to see what's in them.
  • Slim Hangers: Use really slim hangers so that you'll have more space for your clothes in the closet. Peter used velour hangers so the clothes won't slip off.
  • Flat Surfaces: Always keep the flat surfaces clean, because as soon as you give up on a flat surface — whether it be the floor, the tables, the kitchen counter — the moment it's not clear, it becomes clutter.
