A show hosted by organizing Aussie, Peter Walsh, called “Enough Already” has appeared on Oprah Winfrey’s new network “OWN“, offering lots of fantastic tips on keeping our homes tidy and purposeful. Throughout each episode, he successfully helps, guides, and counsels homeowners accomplish the enormous and emotional task of wading through and purging their clutter in lightning speed.
Peter often points out (paraphrased): “Flat surfaces are not for storage. The biggest flat surface is the floor, so it is important to find alternative areas to place your things.”
Hmm…I’m guessing, when it comes to the flat surface of a wall – a very useful area for organizing – he meant we should build or place shelving along with bins, baskets, dividers. Cupboards and dressers are certainly good organizing options as well.
There’s one other fabulous way to use this flat surface: how about hooks? Today’s blog offers a sample of simple wall decorations that gives the hook to clutter and lets the utilitarian-cool take center stage.
