Today is National Clean Your Room Day! Perhaps you questioned the point of cleaning your room when you were a kid, but surely you understand the perks of an organized and harmonious home now. The only difference is, these days you’re responsible for a lot more than just one room. From kitchen cabinets to closets, here are four tips on how to organize the most common items that cause clutter.
