"I had heard the 'everything in your house needs a home' tip and always thought that I could do it with some wiggle room. For any given object I had three or four places it could be, but this only lead to cluttered drawers where NOTHING could be found. Give everything a PROPER home. Spices, medicine, pots and pans — all of it needs a special place all on its own." —katrinas490cf8b1d More tips here.

"Display your makeup stash in such a way that you can easily see all of them at any given time. This way you'll be aware of the things you already have, and can avoid buying similar things. For me, lip products are my downfall. So I took a clear plastic box, put them inside the box and group them by colour/shade family. This way I can stop myself when I'm tempted to buy another fuchsia/berry/nude lipstick because I remember I already own like, a dozen of them."
