Today’s world reeks of consumerism. While this has its advantages, it also generates clutter. This is essentially because homes and offices have to maintain records and other important documents have to be kept. Then in private homes there is off course CDs, magazines, cassettes, newspapers, recent and old bills etc. These have accumulated in the home over a period of time.
Home and offices are overflowing with clutter. The entire place becomes untidy due to things that we do not need at that particular moment. Some things we do need, some things we do. But without getting organized there is no way to know which is what.
Many organizations try to create a paperless atmosphere in a bid to do away with clutter, but to no avail. According to some reports, this junk is supposedly causing over 30% loss in productivity to some businesses! At home, this junk gets hoarded in closets, bedrooms, kitchens and any other available area and causes serious hygiene issues. The mess can cause damage to the home, the office and the environment, in general.
Systematic organization helps in managing clutter to a large extent. This is the reason why offices and business firms are able to manage clutter better. They have certain principles and rules laid down. Each staff has the responsibility to keep the office clean and besides there are regulations as to where each thing should go.
Offices also have a system in place to dispose off clutter regularly. But it is a totally different scenario at home. Firstly, there are no hard and fast rules. Secondly, there is no threat, so there is no need to force oneself to clean up- one can be bit more flexible. Thirdly, because of the fast pace of things, everybody is in a rush and there is no time to clean up. This leads to strewn waste papers, scattered magazines, mislaid bills, misplaced shoes etc.
Storage cubes are one of the best ways to deal with clutter. This is because the problem of clutter is not going to go away soon. The more it is avoided the more it rears its ugly head. Before long becomes a problem. But a proper and well-planned storage system can tackle this. As we mentioned, this can easily be tacked using storage cubes.
Storage cubes are interesting tools for taking care of clutter. They are usually made of plastic, polyester or wood and can be stacked together. Their handiness has made them increasingly popular. They are like storage cabinets where people store unwanted stuff for the time being. No important material gets thrown away; it is just systematically stored and can be retrieved whenever needed. This is a much better system than piling your things up in a storage room where you will never be able to locate them.
Storage cubes do not require too much space. They can be stacked on top of each other easily. This creates space. Their light nature also means that they easily be moved from place to place. This has created a whole new dimension in storage.
