There’s nothing like the holidays to remind us with crystal clarity just how disorganized our lives are. Add a mile-long gift list to our daily goings-on with no time to shop for it, on top of visiting relatives (or flights or road trips, if we’re the ones doing the visiting) and it becomes blatantly evident just what level of disarray we’ve been living in. Since a new year is the perfect time to get organized and adopt new habits vis-a-vis a new year’s resolution or two, we’ve pulled together 10 smart storage ideas, from a simple collection of boxes to pull odds and ends together to a full-fledged feat of architecture, tucking as-needed items under the stairs and integrating intelligent solutions into common household furnishings. There’s no better time than the present to get it together and make some semblance of order out of our chaotic lives. Here, a few ideas. Happy holidays, all!
