There’s no one more organized than Martha Stewart. The author, television personality, publisher and Jersey girl has become an expert on perfecting the everyday pieces of life. Who better to help us keep the clutter away?

 

Cut the Clutter

“The more things you have, the harder it is to organize. Take a good look at what you have and pare down your possessions. If you can’t remember the last time you used something, you probably don’t need it.”

 

Give it a Home

Everything should have a home, and that home shouldn’t be a pile in the corner. “A corollary to this principle is to store it where you use it. If you are an avid cook like me, keep those saucepans, spoons and whisks within arm’s reach of the stove.”

 

Think in Multiples

“When creating a home for sundry items, use matching containers, which are a great way to organize a space and to make it more beautiful.

 

Plan Ahead

Lists and day planners are valuable tools for managing your time, which is essential to getting – and staying – organized. Stewart suggests using a dry erase weekly planner for jotting down grocery lists, and journals and notebooks can help you organize all kinds of projects.
