“Most people keep things because they believe they will come in useful one day, but in fact the stagnant energy that collects around unused things causes stagnation in the life of whoever owns them. So instead of being an asset, clutter is in fact a liability. That’s why people who have clutter are always stuck in their lives in some way.” Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui by Karen Kingston
Well, shit. I always thought keeping things to recycle or reuse was a good thing. So, internet, what ideas do you have for this problemo?
How about this handy light switch thingamajig?
This thing, I’ll call it a rack, was designed by Paul Koh, and could be used in many clever ways. Or, well, the ways are a bit obvious, but it could be used in many places. You could use it in the garage and hang your snow shovel on it. You could hang licorice ropes in it in case your in need of a sugar fix and are on your way out the door. You could keep mail there, like shown. Honestly though, I’m pretty sure that I would leave my mail there for weeks then. So that may not be the best use. But surely there are many more ways to use this little bugger. I personally think the little knobs are too manly and look like screws almost, but I bet one could easily swop those out for a cute little knob.
Like one of these beauties from Anthropology:
Or perhaps something more sleek to match, like this guy from Bed, Bath and Beyond:
I’ll be diving further into the world of organizing later I’m sure. I’m the one you see on lunch breaks sneaking off to the Container Store just for a quick look. What a dork! Or, should I say knob?
