http://www.ClutterDiet.com Get organized with home organizing tips from professional organizers at The Clutter Diet. Do you feel like every inch of your space is being utilized and still there’s not enough? Have you run out of drawers and shelves and counters? In this video Lorie Marrero is sharing one of her favorite places for storage- doors! Following these strategies will give you more visible, usable space. These Clutter Video Tips are posted frequently here on our clutterdiet organizing channel. You can search Twitter for #ClutterVideoTip also to find comments on our organizing tips. Lorie Marrero is the creator of ClutterDiet.com and the author of The Clutter Diet: The Skinny on Organizing Your Home and Taking Control of Your Life. Lorie also serves as the national spokesperson for Goodwill Industries International and ambassador of the Donate Movement.
Hi. I’m Lorie Marrero, creator of the Clutter Diet book and on-line program, and today I’m going to share with you one of my best hidden storage secrets. Now, we talk about going vertical a lot when we’re looking for storage. So we’re usually talking about a wall where we’re trying to put some cabinets or shelves and we’re going vertical up that wall. But what most people haven’t thought about is that the back of a door is really another wall space that you have available for you [POP]. So it’s a blank canvas for you for storage.
Here I’m standing next to our pantry door where I have glued on some tiles that allow me to use this as a bulletin board. So we pin up little notices and things, some quick reference information [POP] for our family here. But this is so useful, if I didn’t have as large of a pantry as I happened to have in this home, I would definitely be using the back of this door for a big pantry wrack like you see here. So you can have lots of boxes and cans on that, and it really expands your storage. If you Google “over door storage” or “over the door storage,” you will find tons of products that are made specifically for using on the back of a door. And really most of them don’t even require installation. A lot of them have been designed to hook over the top of the door so you don’t even have to use any tools.
One of the best uses of the back of a door is these simple shoe pockets. These are so versatile. They’re made for shoes, but you can use them for almost anything. Here I’m showing what we did in our Women’s Day reader Linda’s home, “Hi Linda,” in Michigan, for our Project Declutter [POP] series. And we have her home office where she’s got lots of things she uses to make greeting cards for her home-based business. So all of the things you see in these shoe pockets are hole punches, different, various kinds of decorative punches, for these greeting cards. You can put Barbie dolls in them, you can put all kinds of kids toys and knickknacks, as well as shoes, or mittens, or gloves, whatever fits in these pockets. But you can see what incredible storage this earns for you with a simple installation of hooks over the door.
So another over-the-door thing is just hooks. So you can hang anything you want on the back of the door. I have a product I really love here that I’m showing that’s called “The Hinge It,” and I find that builders usually don’t put towel wracks in, in an adequate way, and you usually need more towel space for hanging in a bathroom. So this goes behind the door of maybe your water closet in your bathroom and you can hide away some of the towels that you’re trying to hang up and dry. And you can hang your bathrobe on a hook on the back of a door, lots of different things. You can hang jewelry organizers, I can go on and on.
Here’s a picture of our Woman’s Day reader Pam in Project Declutter, her closet where we have her scarves that we’re showing, and she got visibility to her whole scarf collection, so she can see that when she opens the door. Again, it’s like having a whole other wall space. So she has that whole collection whenever she’s choosing one of her favorites. She loves scarves, as you can see. So, again, Google “over the door,” you’re going to find all kinds of solutions. And if you need help with your storage space, we can help you with that. Seven days a week we have a team of professional organizers on-line helping our members in the Message Board area of our Membership site. And that is done for about the price of a pizza. We are directly consulting with you with your personal questions. You can upload photos and show us what’s going on in your space, and we help you get unstuck. You can find out more at http://www.clutterdiet.com/learnmore.
See you next time, and may you always be happy and grateful for having more than enough.
Today I used the KonMari method to declutter my valuables. Because this was a fairly vague category I stuck to Marie Kondo’s examples of passports and credit cards etc. I managed to get rid of quite a few points cards, store cards etc that I was not using on a regular basis and I was able to let go of one purse which had been used for storage.
If you are using the KonMari method I would love to hear how you are getting on!

→MINIMALISM CLOSET DECLUTTER WITH STEPS TO MINIMIZE YOUR WARDROBE
STEP 1 – Lay out all your clothes a flat surface and yes that includes all the clothes you have in your closet as well as any clothes that you may have put away in drawers. You could put them on top of your bed or on the floor, depending on how much clothes you have, decide how big is the area that you’ll need to cover.
STEP 2 – Separate them into different sections. Keep all the shirts together in one section, all the pants together in another section and etc, create as many sections as you need. This will allow you to not miss any pieces when sorting out your clothes.
STEP 3 – In order to sort out you clothes, you will need to go through every piece in each section individually. While you are going through each piece, start to separate them into 3 new and separate sections. The first section will be the clothes that you use all the time, that fit you, that you feel confident in, that you like and that you want to keep. The second section will be the clothes that you have repeated, that occasionally wear, that still fits you and that you like but you are unsure if you want to keep it or get rid of it. The third section will be the clothes that you have not used in a long time, that you don’t plan to use anymore, that may not fit you anymore or that you no longer like and you have decided that you want to get rid of it.
STEP 4 – Go over the section that you are unsure if you want to keep and review each item. Ask yourself 3 questions. The first question is: Do you have any similar/repeated piece of clothing that you are already keeping? If you do, decide if it’s worth having it repeated. The second question to ask yourself is: How often have you used this piece of clothing in the last month and how often do you plan to use it on the next month? If you have not used it in the last month the chances are that you probably won’t use it in the next month either and you should definitely get rid of it. The third and final question to ask yourself is: How would you feel if you didn’t have this piece of clothing in your closet? If you feel indifferent or that you really like it but you would be okay without it then you should definitely get rid of it. If you feel that you’re maybe going to miss it because it has some sentimental value to you and you would like to keep it for a while longer. Or if you forgot that you had it and you would like to use it more going forward, then you should definitely keep it.
STEP 5 – Once you have sorted out all your clothes, repeat the entire process in a month or as often as you need. This will allow you to see if you still feel the same way about the clothes that you kept or to see if you would like to get rid of more pieces that was a bit hard for you to get rid of the first time you started this process. I know that for me since this is my second time doing this decluttering process with my clothes, it is definitely easier this time than the first time i did it. It gives me a chance to review my original decision and to decide if i made the right choice for me.

–5 EASY STEPS TO MINIMIZE / DECLUTTER YOUR MAKEUP–
STEP 1 – Grab some paper towel or an old towel/cloth that you don’t mind washing or throwing away afterwards and laying it down on a flat surface. It could be on top of the table or on the floor, depending on how much makeup you have, decide how big is the area that you’ll need to cover. This will alow you to keep the mess down to a minimum and avoid staining or dirtying anyting with your make up.
STEP 2 – Take out every piece of make up that you own and lay it flat on top of the area that you covered on step number one. Make sure to keep the eye shadows close to each other, the lipsticks close to each other, the mascaras close to each other and etc. This will allow you to not miss any pieces when sorting out your make up.
STEP 3 – Separate your makeup into 3 sections. The first section will be the makeup that you use all the time and that you like. The second section will be the makeup that you ocasionally wear or that you like but you are unsure if you want to keep it or get rid of it. The third section will be the makeup that you have not used in a long time or that you no longer like.
STEP 4 – Go over the section that you are unsure if you want to keep and review each item. Ask yourself 3 simple questions. The first question is: Do you have any similar/repeated makeup item that you are already keeping? If you do, decide if it’s worth having it repeated. The second question to ask yourself is: How often have you used this makeup item in the last month and how often do you plan to use it on the next month? If you have not used it in the last month the chances are that you probably won’t use it in the next month either and you should definitely get rid of it. The third and final question to ask yourself is: How would you feel if you didn’t have this makeup item? If you feel indiferent or that you really like it but you would be okay without it then you should definitely get rid of it. If you feel that you’re maybe running out of one of the makeup items that you are keeping and you would like to use this item as a replacement instead of purchasing a new item, then you should definitely keep it.
STEP 5 – Once you have sorted out all your makeup, repeat the entire process in a few days or as often as you need. This will allow you to see if you still feel the same way about the items that you kept or to see if you would like to get rid of more makeup that was a bit hard for you to get rid of the first time you started this process. I know that for me doing this decluttering process is most of the time easier to the second or third time around. It gives me a chance to review my original decision and to decide if i made the right choice for me.
