Bachelor Pad Clutter

I don’t recommend trying to get organized all in one shot. It’s overwhelming. Instead, start with one or two important areas, and work your way down. We began by organizing the all important desktop/bookshelf that was in need of some attention. By removing everything and sorting through each piece of paper and the office supplies we were able to get rid of the unnecessary items. Clean as you go.

It’s that time again to open up those closets, pull out all of that crap you’ve been collecting over the winter, give those shelves a good wipe down and put back all those “I’ll actually use” items! We keep so much stuff that we don’t ever use.
