Only use bins when it makes sense
Storage bins are useful for small items, like hats and scarves. However, interior designer Roric Tobin warns that relying on them too much can make a disorganized situation worse.
“Often if you look closer, you’ll find that those perfectly arranged bins or baskets are basically a series of catch-alls that are only hiding the clutter,” Tobin says. “It looks good when company comes over, but when you actually go looking for what you need, sifting and digging through a bin becomes a frustrating endeavor.”
