"Chances are you don’t have as much space as you’d like, so you need to make the most of the space you do have. This doesn’t just mean finding a new nook in which to cram more clutter, or devising a clever way to stack piles of papers. Instead it’s about streamlining your space and your possessions so that you can be more efficient at work and enjoy a more relaxing and serene environment at home."

    Unclutterer is all about organising your space and your life. Whether you're swimming in a pile of junk and need help to do something with it, or you're a neat freak (or both -- like me), this place has lots of interesting articles for you. Unclutterer tackles a wide range of topics: digital clutter on your computer, kid clutter, lovely tiny organizing tips, to simple living, and much more. Extreme minimalism mondayare a tongue-in-cheek feature that I look forward to at the start of every week !
