How to Be Insanely Organized in 25 Simple Steps

Find us someone (other than Martha Stewart and Marie Kondo) who has completely tackled clutter at home, and we will personally deliver them a medal. The war on clutter is real, and it's being waged in homes everywhere. All year, we've been busy sparking joy, donating, organizing, and digitizing—and while we've come a very long way since our first KonMari attempt, we can't say that our homes are truly clutter-free yet.

Yes, tackling clutter all at once can be a daunting project, but the good news is that the more small steps you take toward an organized home, the more natural it becomes to stay organized. Little by little, even the smallest acts make our homes a little more clutter-free each day. Since it can be overwhelming to take on large-scale organizational projects—like emptying out half-forgotten storage units or going through piles of unworn clothing in your overly crowded walk-in closet—starting small is your best course of action.

These changes are so small that they'll barely alter your daily routines, but they will have a big impact on your home.
