For whatever reason, storage areas of the home are super difficult to keep organized. Is it because we have so much stuff these days, or because we don’t entertain in those rooms, so we tend to let the organization slide?

We tend to start at the top when we organize closets…you know…shelves and the hang bar. But if you map out the floor first, you might actually have a good spot for the vacuum. Am I right? Once the vacuum has a home, grab a set of drawers (plastic if you like) for things you need to get at frequently or quickly (batteries, tape, extension cords, etc.).
