Resolve to Clean Up the Clutter

The clutter that surrounds you can cause anxiety and impede productivity, so resolve to get organized this year.

coverAspen resident Evan Zislis, professional organizer, founder of Intentional Solutions and author of ClutterFree Revolution: Simplify Your Stuff, Organize Your Life & Save the World, suggests that you first visualize what you want from your space. “Then take away all the things that aren’t in that vision,” he says. “Organize the things that are important and make it beautiful – design it with style and vibrancy so you’re inspired to do the maintenance.”

Showcase the items you desire and get rid of everything else: recycle, consign or throw it away. If you have belongings you want to keep but can’t find a place for, find a storage facility to keep it all safe.

“Whether you’re expanding your family, downsizing your home, need an off-site location to store your business items or just don’t have the storage space you need, a storage unit can be of valuable assistance,” says Marcus Mollman, founder and CEO of Denver-based Closetbox, a full-service storage company. “But driving back and forth from your home or business to a storage facility is sometimes overwhelming, especially when faced with inclement weather and heavy traffic.”
