What is behind the door clutter?

Updated: 4 days ago

You know when someone is coming to visit and you don't know what to do with the items sitting around so you stuff them in the closet?

Or how about when you put all of the things you don't want to let go of and don't know what to do with into those cute boxes you bought at Target last week?

And then there is the dresser drawers that are so stuffed you can't open them or close them all the way?

All of those are examples of behind the door clutter. Honestly, I'd say this clutter is the trickiest. Partly because it's usually stuff we have no idea what to do with so it just moves around from one hiding spot to another. But also because it a lot more people have it than fess up to because they do a good job of hiding their clutter in new storage cabinets so their home looks tidy but actually has a hidden clutter secret.

The problem with this tricky clutter is that since we don't see it out every day, we don't think we need to deal with it. However, this clutter can cause stress every time you do have to deal with it when doors and drawers don't close or you can't find what you are looking for when you open a cabinet or closet.

Next week I'll give some tips on how to handle this kind of clutter.

I hope this helps you on your decluttering journey.
