It’s a big deal. He gets mad 😠 with me sometimes about. So here I am in search of some help. Hopefully the picture will load.


So this is a storage space that I have in the worlds smallest two bedroom condo. I need to get it straight. Any idea on what to do better?

How much of that is used? I've had to part with several kitchen gadgets because I needed the space more than I needed to make my own bread or ice cream.

Are you willing to let your husband declutter the area? If he's the one getting mad, it is his issue, unless you're against him decluttering it himself.

I use it all and if he did it would all be trashed.

Quoting Terpsichore:

Ok so try taking out all the small stuff first then the larger stuff put it all out in front of you on the floor start with the small stuff put the stuff that you use the most in the front and the stuff that doesn't get used that much in the back or vise versa so you can start using the stuff you don't use. You can label each shelf so you know what's on it and make it easier to find things. The larger stuff put in the bottom by size order. Hopefully that will help you to organize more.

When organizing finish this sentence, this is where ---- belongs. First of all that suitcase is to big for the shelf so it can't go there. Pull everything off onto the floor and star with the top All electronics on top. Then put all bowls together.
And stack them All together should be a lot. See if the suitcase can fit the bottom shelf alone.

There are professional organizers that can help.  Are you ADD?  I am and was diagnosed as an adult.  Meds is the best thing that happened to me.  I truly know what you're going through.

Pull everything out. Go through each item and decide if you really need to keep it. Get rid of what you don’t need. Clean the shelves. Decide what you’ll use most and put those things at waist to eye level. Group like things together. Put small things together in a single box. Anything that doesn’t easily fit needs to go somewhere else. When everything has its own space, it will be easier to keep organized.
