  1. Hi Melissa! I have watched various videos of yours a lot in the past and, am afraid, I strayed! I desperately need to get rid of much clutter in my house, so I’m back on track to try to declutter once again and have many piles of stuff to deal with! My biggest question and challenge is exactly what kind of storage accessories work best for what particular items/categories?? (i.e. do I put things in file folders or file boxes/bins, etc.) Any ideas you may have regarding this would be helpful! Thank you so much for your inspiration and positive attitude!

  2. I need to declutter my room. I have a lot of random paper (school stuff/notes) that I’ve just put in a couple of boxes as I’m not sure what to do with it. I did sort it out a little and threw some away. Any ideas to kind of organise it? Also organising surfaces like desk, dresser etc is difficult. I usually just throw stuff on top without really thinking about it, but then I have a pile of stuff and it’s overwhelming.
