Give everything a home. A big reason why clutter accumulates is because items are homeless. A good home for an item is one that makes it easy to retrieve and return. Oven mitts for example, are ideally stored in a waist-height drawer near the stove, but the best home for a roasting pan might be in the garage freeing up cabinet space for more regularly used items.
