Resources

I thought it would be helpful to create a list of useful websites, articles, equipment, books, and other odds and ends that I believe can really help in the decluttering and organization process. As I come across great resources I add them to this list - I recommend bookmarking the page for your reference. Enjoy!

Equipment

Shoe racks - so many types; I really recommend a shoe bench and a hanging shoe holder if you have "overflow". Big help when trying to declutter entryways and areas near doors.

Wire and cable ties - see the linked article for a bunch of ideas on different ways to get them under control and keep them out of the way.

Pot and Pan Rack - get pots and pans out of the way and give you kitchen a neat look. I love these. Read more about ideas for these racks here.

Car console kits - keeping things tidy if your car will help keep down the stray clutter that builds up. One central location for your items in the car is a good way to stop the habit of tossing things anywhere in the car.

Paper Shredder - I have this exact one and love it. It saves me time and space, and makes dealing with mail and other paperwork quick and painless. Highly recommend getting one of these.
