Spring is the time for new beginnings, and with some helpful advice, you'll be able to take that tired resolution off your list and get organized once and for all.

Check out these 5 organizing tips from the pros. In each tip, they encourage us to get creative. Don't be bound by what you believe you can do with your space. Come to it with fresh eyes: see where you can make it more usable, and how you can fit in the things you need without being overrun by them.

One tip that I found particularly useful is to get rid of all those circular storage baskets kicking around the house. They might look great, but they are not designed for efficient storage. Replace them with square or rectangular baskets. These will hold more things, fit better into corners, and leave less unused space around them.

The end of the article leaves us with this important thought: "The less "stuff" you have out in your home, the bigger and calmer it will look." I'd add: the less stuff you have, and the bigger and calmer it looks, the more relaxed you will feel.
