Friday 5: clear office clutter

Last week, I complained about my top 5 sources of office clutter. Since then, I’ve stumbled across Life Organizer’s 10 simple ways to clear clutter from your home and office. I usually stick to top 5 lists for the Friday 5, but I’m making an exception this week.

This suggestion stuck out for me:
Make a rule that everything has a drawer, cabinet, basket, bin, or shelf it belongs on put nothing on the flat surfaces in your house

What do you do when you live in a small space? What do you do when your office is in a small space? I can’t even use my home office to its full capacity, since I have floor to ceiling windows and a preschooler. I can’t create risky opportunities. Anyone else have this problem?
