The Space Savers Encyclopedia!

So, we’ve now lived in our house for almost two-and-a-half years, and I noticed something the other day: we’re starting to accumulate STUFF.

Now…I HATE stuff. There’s no point in just having STUFF. And it really bothers me when I look around the house and I just see STUFF.

Post It Note With Copyspace For Message

So I’ve been working on eliminating some of our stuff. Some has gone to friends or family who are in need of it. Some has gone to the consignment store or a yard sale site where we can get a little money for it. Some has been digitized and shredded. And some has just plain been thrown away. 

I’m feeling a lot better about things in this regard lately, but, allow me to point this out: there’s a difference between having STUFF and having things that just need some good organizing. I mean, you really shouldn’t get rid of all of your socks because your sock drawer is cluttered. Your feet might get cold at some point. You just need to save a little space and do a little organizing.

So when Georgia from Storage World contacted me to see if I was interested in her Space Savers Encyclopedia infographic, I wasn’t quite sure what a Space Savers Encyclopedia was! But as soon as I saw it, I knew it was exactly what I needed…and probably what some of you need, too!

Behold…

What FANTASTIC space-saving ideas! Thanks so much, Georgia! Removing clutter can save 40% of time on housework, saving as much as 1.7 years over a person’s lifetime?! I think I need to go get rid of some more stuff…

What did you like most about the infographic? Do you have any areas in your home that need to be re-arranged to make better use of space?

  1. I have been doing the same thing this year. I have posted how I simplified my wardrobe. It’s freeing to get rid of the “things” which we don’t need. Love these new ideas! Thanks.

  2. I have been trying to declutter our home. It’s hard because every time I throw something away someone drags it back out.

  3. Those are great space saving ideas. I love all of the great ways to use the stairs. We just recently did a big remodel and we packed stuff up and placed them in bins and stored it away for over 4 months. We are in the process of putting it all back and I don’t want it all back LOL. I told my husband if we have not had to use it in almost 5 months, we don’t need to keep it.

  4. I love those drawers for stair steps, that would be such a great way to store things – or hide things from your kids! I am currently finally getting settled into the home we moved into in November so this is great. I too hate clutter.

  5. ha, the flowcharts gave me instant nightmares of computer programming classes back in the day. Way back in the day. 😉 I”m all for space saving though!

  6. This is the whole reason I’m SO excited to move at the end of August. I’m packing, tossing junk and getting rid of clutter. I can’t stand all the clutter.

  7. Really an informative and useful post indeed! I do need to de-clutter my home. I really like the staircase drawer idea. Your tips are very helpful to me & I am going to try them all. Thanks for sharing.
