Here are some of the most common sources of household clutter and they will not come as a surprise to you.

The Clutter That Has No Home

Some of the clutter in your house comes from the stuff that you want and need but have no place to keep in. For example, you may have a few packages that are yet to be opened and you have let them stay in the corner of your living room without getting them a proper storage. You know you will use them definitely sometime but for now they lack a space of their own. Such items would include seasonal items that you probably have got your hands on during an incredible sale. They could even be books that you keep promising yourself you will get on to but never really do. They may even be items that you have purchased for the purpose of gifting someone in the near future.

Clutter That Could Well Be Just Trash

You know some of the stuff that you have been thinking of donating or just throwing off but your lazy self never really gets around to it? Yeah, that’s clutter alright. Old newspapers that have no use, magazines or broken glasses –all of these things are clutter. Sometimes you may even have a pair of jeans that needs its hem repaired but you never really take it to the tailor. That, friend, is clutter.

Clutter That Was An Impulsive Mistake

How many times have you bought something out of impulsiveness? Such stuff that you think you need at the moment because you are getting it on a good deal but never end up using is undoubtedly household clutter.
