Free Yourself From Clutter in 2006
Simplify your life with smart, chic, space savers

New Year, New You: the perennial resolution of most Americans. Everyone wants better bodies, healthier habits, a better balance between work and play, and clutter-free living. With more than 10,000 home furnishing products to choose from, IKEA, the world's largest furniture retailer, offers affordable, easy and time-saving solutions that simplify and organize your life-giving you time to address the rest of your resolutions throughout the New Year.
Kitchen- Because organizing kitchen drawers and cabinets can be a challenge when space is limited, the IKEA GRUNDTAL wall-mounted storage system makes empty wall space ideal for storing and organizing items big and small. These stainless steel space savers keep frequently-used items like paper goods, utensils, plates and seasonings neatly stored, within easy reach and simple to find. Add components as needed. Components cost: $1.99-$24.99
Home Office- Who says the office has to be dull? Spark creativity and energize yourself with colorful, smart IKEA furnishings and organizers that offer solutions for housing, filing, displaying and safekeeping all your office needs.
Bedroom- IKEA says, "Give PAX a chance!" With the IKEA PAX system and IKEA KOMPLEMENT fittings, you can customize your wardrobe to a tee-or suit, or purse palace... Below are some varieties that illustrate solutions for those who prefer their clothes and accessories folded or hung, or separated in drawers, bins, boxes or shelves. And with mirrored or translucent door options available, you get a first look--and last--before running out the door. Components cost: $16.00-$464.00
Children's storage- It can take a child two seconds to make a mess that takes an adult two hours to clean. So encourage youngsters to be neat with fun, colorful furnishings that act as simple storage for clothing, toys, dolls and laundry.

Living and Social Spaces- Conquer clutter and add a pop of color without relying on decorative accessories. Find furnishings that make use of more than one surface and handle many functions. For example, pieces with hidden storage contain obvious advantages, as they can make rooms look less disheveled and feel more welcoming.
