Overview

Practical storage solutions for reducing annoying clutter throughout the home.

Household clutter is often caused by a lack of storage or the poor use of existing storage. Room-by-room, 200 Tips for De-cluttering addresses many typical storage problems — from clothing in the bedroom to gadgets in the kitchen to toys in the living room to newspapers, magazines and remote controls in the family room. For each challenge, the author offers useful solutions that are easy to put into action right away.

Color photographs show the beautiful and orderly results of de-cluttering, and helpful captions describe the design features and storage solutions that hide the messiness of life and help keep everything neat and tidy. The projects range from a "kitchen garage" to store small appliances to moveable walls that increase a room's versatility.

200 Tips for De-cluttering addresses these problems and many others in an organized way, tackling one area at a time. It covers:

  • Storage inside the house — kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, living rooms, hallways, awkward corners, garages, gyms, home theaters, playrooms, billiards rooms, music rooms and small spaces, including studio apartments
  • Storage outside the house — pool areas, porches, patios, balconies, roof gardens, outdoor dining areas, sheds, play areas, parking
  • "Green" tips — eco-friendly de-cluttering, using green materials and establishing ecologically sound household routines

A directory of resources provides a comprehensive list of retailers and services that specialize in the de-cluttering process.

200 Tips for De-cluttering is an easy-to-use, practical guide that helps the home owner or apartment renter streamline their space for easier mess-free living.

Editorial Reviews

Calgary Herald - Lisa Kadane
Get inspired with gorgeous ideas for your living spaces while becoming more organized in the process. That's the idea behind a new book by Daniela Santos Quartino: 200 Tips For De-cluttering Room by Room, including Outdoor Spaces and Eco Tips (Firefly Books Ltd., 799 pages, $39.95 hardcover). The thick tome features bullet-sized tips for all rooms in the house with gorgeous colour photographs that illustrate each decluttering idea. But be forewarned: not only will the book motivate you to pare down and clean up, you'll find yourself coveting new bathroom fixtures, living room furniture and maybe even a brand new kitchen configuration.
Canadian House and Home - Catherine Macintosh
If you can't get enough of clever design, this hefty book packs a punch in terms of volume. With nearly 800 image-heavy pages of ingenious rooms and furniture, it could help even hopeless pack rats overcome storage issues in style. Best section: Nearly 100 pages of gorgeous and unique bathroom designs.
Escarpment Views
It's a beautiful book, very thick at 799 pages, with gorgeous, full-colour photos on every page. It's organized in useful sections on kitchens, home offices, bedrooms, hallways and more.
Family Chronicle
Whether you have some idea of how and where your ancestors lived or at a total loss about how to start your research, renowned genealogist Anthony Adolph shows you how to unravel your family history generation by generation and how to unlock your search when the trail goes cold. Tracing Your Irish Family History gives you an expert helping hand in retracing your family's past. Also includes Irish names, Milesius and pedigrees, heraldry and more; hundreds of archival photographs and documents; Irish resources, documents, terms and archives.
Homes and Cottages
Almost every household suffers from some degree of clutter and lack of organization or storage.

From clothing in the bedroom to toys, remotes and books in the family room, Quartino seeks to combat each problem with a practical design feature that can be put to immediate use. Eco-friendly tips are also included, with green materials suggested, and directions for establishing ecologically sound household routines given. Full-colour photographs are used throughout to show the beautiful and orderly results of de-cluttering.
La Maison Anglaise (Quebec City)
For those of you who are Irish, here is a gem of a book. Not only does it actually help you to know where and how to find information on your ancestors around the world, it is in itself a mini history of the Irish people's migrations. It explains how and why they moved, and more importantly, where to find the records. It is a must-have for anyone looking for their Irish roots.
Style at Home
Is your small space overflowing? Discover clutter-busting strategies and clever storage ideas (exposed storage creates the illusion of more space, and also forces you to keep it neat) so everything has its place. Get room —by-room, outdoor and eco organizing tips.
