Spring is a time of renewal and provides a fresh start to home organization. It’s the perfect time to do a quick run through of your things to evaluate what stays and what goes. But where do you start after a long cold (cluttered) winter? Here are a few high traffic areas you should take on first:

- Flex your storage: if you’re dealing with stationary shelves that dictate where to store clothes and shoes, you’re probably wasting valuable space. Adjustable shelves allow you to change them around items being stored.
- Protect seasonal clothes in airtight containers. Store them in a guest closet, basement or attic until next season. If you don’t have extra space, store them in containers below the bed or on top shelves in your closet.
