“Tiny Tips” for a Less Cluttered Space

Seana giving tiny tips for a less cluttered space.

No one loves a big organizing project more than I do. At the same time, there are some “tiny” changes we can make that help our space look ordered and operate more smoothly. Today I’m sharing four short videos, each with a tiny tip to help you have a less cluttered space.

“Tiny Tip” #1 – Add Trash Cans

“Tiny Tip” #2 – Cut the Flaps

“Tiny Tip” #3 – Fully Remove The Tear Strip

“Tiny Tip” #4 – Cut Down Snack Bags

Do you use any of these “tiny” tips? What would you add to this list?

    1. Love that idea! There are some beautiful containers on the market these days, and of course, they holidays are just around the corner if you don’t have any.

  1. You are preaching to the choir! When my husband and I moved into our home, we bought a trash can for almost every room in our house. I even put two in some rooms, one for recycling and one for trash, since we do a lot of recycling paper and plastic. Thanks for reminding people that there are small changes that can be done that will transform their lives. You are the best!

    1. You and I could “hang” Sabrina! I love that you put trash cans in every room. We also have two in some rooms (like the office) where there is a great need for recycling. Big projects are fun, but small adjustments can also have a big impact!

  2. I don’t know if you can see, but I’m smiling from ear to ear. The first three tips were the warm-up for that last one! I LOVE it! I’ve always folded the bags of chips and pretzels (as they get eaten) and put a bag clip on them. But I never thought about cutting the bag down in size. That one is brilliant. And while I’m not eating a lot of those snacks these days, now I can’t wait to get some bag cutting done. Something to look forward to. Thanks for the great “tiny tips!”

    1. I’m a bit obsessed about cutting the chip bag. It has become a family joke. I was eating a giant Toblerone a couple of years back, using my “usual technique” of eliminating excess packaging as I worked my way through. My daughter came home from school, looked at the candy bar box, and said, “You cut the box, didn’t you Mom?” LOL!

  3. That’s a HUGE oatmeal box. The largest boxes I have in my kitchen (granted, I’m a singleton) are my 12-ounce cereal boxes and my 11.5 (family-size) Triscuit box! But definitely ditch those flappy flaps! And you’re right, the flappy tear-strip isn’t creating physical clutter, but it sure does create a visual/cognitive obstacle. And OMG, I am giggling at the funny face you made while squishing the bulky chip back. I love when you say “tiny tip” and pinch your fingers; you make these so much fun!

    1. That oatmeal is for my husband, who eats one packet every morning. Believe it or not, the first time I bought it was for a Valentine’s Day present (I know, I’m so romantic), because he was going to try and start this new, healthier habit. Everything from Costco is super-sized!

      Gotta have fun with the videos, right? Thanks, Julie!

  4. These are such great tips! I used to find myself leaving those clothing tags on a shelf in my laundry room because, for some reason, I didn’t have a trash can in there for the longest time after we had moved into our current home. Such a simple thing, but those trash cans are often overlooked for sure.

    1. It’s funny how universal those “clothing tags on a shelf” are! I do the same if there isn’t a trash bag nearby. It is a tiny tip for sure, but with big impact!
