Stop clutter before it comes through the door

Think daily about the stuff that you or others intend to bring through your door – mail, shopping bags, boxes, etc. The biggest clutter mistake is to bring stuff into the house, figuring you’ll “deal with it later”. Solution: If there is something that you suspect will only just pile up (rather than be absolutely useful to you and your family), direct it elsewhere before it even crosses your threshold. After all, a home is (should be) your oasis of order and peace in this crazy world. More stuff means more clutter and stress. Less stuff = Zen bliss
