Do Away with Clutter


When it comes to conquering clutter for good, many designers swear by Ikea’s Expedit bookshelf ($139). Made up of many cubbies, it’s a versatile piece that works in every room of the house, from a child’s room where it can reign in toys to a living room where you can use it to display books and decorative objects -- as Naomi Stein did in her Philadelphia abode. By placing baskets in each cubby, it can make mudrooms less messy, offices more organized and even works well as a room divider. If you prefer to disguise the contents, buy doors for each cubby.
