I never watch Oprah; the timing just isn't right. However, today I had a second, and Peter Walsh was on helping organize a house. I had never heard of him (where've I been???) He had tons of great ideas! I'm going to have to start watching him on the OWN channel! The biggest thing I heard was "keep surfaces clear!" This would be tables, floors and counter tops. By keeping surfaces clear, clutter can't build up.
What do you do if you've got lots of clutter? Find homes for what you've got or get rid of it.
