It seems everyone wants to get organized, but no one knows quite how to do it, here are some simple, basic tips on ways to keep you home clutter free.

• Tackle messes one room at a time.

• When you buy something new, practice the "in-out rule:" For every one new item, get rid of an old one.

• Create intimacy in the master bedroom. Remember that improvements in one room can spread to the rest of the house.

• Make cleaning up fun for your kids.

• Create a vision for the room you're cleaning.

• Teach your kids how to sort.

• Use a hanger system to determine which clothes you wear most.

• Ask yourself if you really need something. If you hesitate, you don't.

• Establish a "magic triangle" in your kitchen between the stove, refrigerator and the sink. Keep the items you use most in that area.

• Identify useful utensils with the cardboard box test
