Clutter breeds when we stock a library of choices. Children get out of the house easier in the morning if they don’t have to puzzle through more than two choices of cereals, juice boxes, or snack foods.
Throw away expired and barely used items and say hello to an orderly approach to everyday food storage.
ELIMINATE BULKY PACKAGING and save space in your pantry by consolidating smaller items, such as snacks and chips in one large container. Store cereals and pastas in see through containers.
USE BASKETS – Sidelines Signature Baskets – to hold commonly used supplies, such as baking supplies or cooking supplies, and you’ll have what you need without digging through the pantry shelves. Store fresh fruits, vegetables and breads.
VISIBILITY IS THE KEY in a pantry. You can’t cook it and eat it if you can’t see it and know you have it! Put older items in front of newer items and mark expiration dates on perishable items with a marker.

It’s everyone’s dirty little secret… a messy closet. There are plenty of ways to clean and organize your closet without a headache.
De-clutter.. You’ll be surprised at how much bigger your closet will look after a de-cluttering. The easiest way to eliminate clutter is to empty the space completely, so that you can put back only what you’re sure to use.
Separate your clothing and accessories into four piles: to keep, to sell or donate, to throw out, and to put into storage. If you haven’t worn it in the past year give it away! If it’s 90 degrees outside, put those winter clothes away.
Storage accessories.. that’s where we come in.. We have the perfect solutions. Baskets, closet rods, belt racks, tie racks, scarf racks, pants racks, closet wear pouches.. etc…
Regroup~ When you’re ready to put your clothes back, be sure to group them together according to style. It will be easier to keep your closet neat and organized when shirts hang with shirts, and pants with pants. You can organize them further by color, length, and fabric if you want. The more meticulously you organize, the more pleasant your closet will look, and the easier you’ll be able to keep it looking organized.
Finally.. Keep it clean~
We all know how quickly a closet can go from spick and span, to chaotic and disorganized. Be sure to know what is allowed in each closet and make sure that all dirty clothes end up in the hamper with the empty hangers kept together.
