Professional organizers see it all. Residentially, I’ve likely seen pretty much everything that a person can buy, store, hide, pile or stash. Here’s the list of the 25 of things that clog up client's homes. 95% of the time they don’t need or need very little of them.

Top 25 Cloggers

  1. Elastics

  2. Plastic bags

  3. Mega mug collection

  4. Soya Sauce / condiment packets

  5. Broken appliances

  6. Plastic containers

  7. Cookbooks from yesteryear

Consider the sentimental value, actual utility, and emotional attachment to each item. Often, the thought of letting go can be more daunting than the act itself. Start small, with one category at a time, and gradually work your way through the list. The result? A lighter, more organized space that fosters clarity and peace of mind.

Pick one or 25 and providing you don't use, need or love it, start paring down now!
