While it probably can’t be proven, many people would swear that junk accumulation follows a law of nature: stay in one place long enough and junk will multiply accordingly. Except for the neat-freaks in our lives, most of us experience this seemingly endless increase in clutter.
And you really aren’t alone.
According to an entry in Wikipedia, it is estimated that in the U.S. “there are approximately 4,000 professional organizers who are members of the trade association, the National Association of Professional Organizers.” This trend has led to an explosion of publications and even television shows.
The Wikipedia article goes on to note that:
There have been a number of television programs on the subject, starting with Life Laundry in 2002, and followed by others such as Clean Sweep, Neat, Mission: Organization, Hoarders, Clean House, and NeatTV, as well as magazines like Real Simple.
With so many professional organizers it is no wonder that there is no shortage of great advice on how to declutter your life and living space, how to get (and stay) organized, and what to do with all the junk you need to dispose of.
Is It Possible to Really Declutter and Get Organized?
Yes, it is. But it does require time, effort and planning. Staying organized is another matter altogether. But you have to start with where you are!
According to the folks at the Container Store, there are three rules to organization and these are visibility, accessibility and flexibility. Visibility typically refers to keeping stored items easily seen and identifiable. Accessibility simply means making sure the things you need most often are easy to get to. And flexibility has to do with storage systems that can re-arranged or re-used in a different way.
With the new year just around the corner, one resolution might be to finally declutter your work or living space, and get things organized around you. With that in mind, we have come up with this Quick Guide for Getting Organized.

Maintaining a Clutter-Free Space
For most people this is the real challenge. Getting free from clutter and organizing one's stuff is an accomplishment worth celebrating. But staying organized and avoiding clutter for the long term - that's a real winner. Part of the secret is to develop more of a "minimalist" mindset. This simply means learning to accumulate less things and to readily rid yourself of whatever you find you don't really need.
This also means developing habits of organizing, storing and regularly "de-cluttering" your space. Everyone is different, however, and what seems junky and cluttered to one might be perfectly manageable to another.
