To Store or not to Store

Yesterday over on Calm the Clutter, my residential/home office blog, I wrote about open versus closed storage. It is important to remember that, while storage containers can be pretty, handsome, can calm the visual noise and look very productive on the book shelves of your office, they may not be necessary at all.

Before finding a container for anything, take a really good look at whether or not there is any point in you keeping it. Do you really need to keep all that scrap paper? (Can it be sent to the local school/daycare for crafts?) Do you really need to keep all those trade show giveaways? (Can they be donated somewhere they will be used?)

You get the picture?
