Trying to organize around the house

I am tyring to organize some things around the house and clean and get rid of some things. I went to walmart to get some of those little bins with the 3 drawers, and they are $19.00 each now. So i didnt' get any because i would need a bunch. Right now i have most everything throwed in those rubbermaid big boxes. And there is about 5 or 6 of them. Any ideas on what i could do? I was thinking about going and buying a big shelf or something. I hate clutter, and i hate those big boxes. And a lot of stuff i am going to get rid of, but a lot i will be keeping. I have got to do something to organize things. Please share some ideas.

  • My best idea a is to go through the boxes again. If you aren't going to use it within a year then give it away. Cut down on the storage. You could stack the boxes in your basement, small storage area, garage, or even in your backyard since they are waterproof.
