  • Step One: Get Rid of Your Crap
Before you can have a truly organized house, you need to purge all the stuff you don't need. Before you do anything, form an attack plan. One of the best ways to declutter your home is to create a detailed inventory, and Once you've highlighted all the things you can downsize. Your home office is the best place to get out from under your crap, and organizing those piles of paper into something manageable, will make everything else simple.

  • Find Better Ways to Organize Your Stuff

Now that you've gotten rid of the crap, it's time to organize the stuff you have left to make it more useful to you during your day. Go through all your leftover stuff and make sure each item has a home. If you need help keeping everything clean, there are a lot of gadgets that can help, as well as stuff you probably already have lying around. If you're disorganized, unhappy with your clutter and the time wasted looking for things.

  • Go through each room and see where the weak points are. Too much clutter spreading itself through your house? Get a landing strip for the front door. Can't find anything in your desk drawers? Organize them by a hierarchy of importance. Fill dresser drawers front to back so you can see everything inside, and find a place for your kitchen stuff that keeps floating around your cupboards (like pot lids).

  • Use a Landing Strip to Keep Clutter from Invading Your Home
Traditionally the argument for a "landing strip", a place to dump your stuff when you walk in the door. 
Remember though, the object isn't to get everything picture-perfect. That's a waste of time. The goal is to get everything just organized enough so that you can find and access everything you need in a timely fashion.  
Get More Done by Organizing "Just Enough"
your desk, work bench, house, or office need not be perfect.

  • Make Sure You Keep It Clean
Once you've gone through all that work, you probably won't ever want to do it again, so now comes the (seemingly) hardest part: keeping everything clean and organized. It's much easier than it seems, though: in fact, by putting all those chores on autopilot, you can keep everything clean with what feels like minimal amounts of work. You'd be surprised how quickly you get to perfection with such little effort.

  • Every time you leave a room, take one item that doesn't belong there with you. And, every night, reboot your office to make sure you come back to a clean workspace in the morning. A few minutes a day is all it takes to keep everything clean and organized for the long haul, and once you've worked it into your daily routine, it'll be so easy to keep up you won't even notice you're doing it. Good luck!
