9. USE CONTAINERS FOR EACH MEMBER OF YOUR FAMILY
This is another way of keeping things under control. Each member of your family is supposed to have his or her own box where personal stuff should be placed.
This is also a way to teach your folks how to be responsible for collecting their own stuff, otherwise, you are just going to toss them away.
Things like cards, keys, telephone, and the likes are perfect to be put in such containers. It is way better than leaving things scattered here and there and keep looking in the mess for your car keys.
10. DIVIDE OLD THINGS INTO GROUPS AND GET RID OF THEM
While you are enjoying your collection of summer skirts and winter jackets, there are people who have absolutely nothing to wear. So instead of storing clothes that you don’t even wear in your closet, you can divide them into groups to get rid of them on separate days during the week.
How? Take them to a charity house where people need all sorts of help or put them in given bins. Each group will be dedicated to a specific thing; 1st group for dresses, 2nd group for socks, 3rd group for pants, etc. You will have more space in your closet for newer stuff.
