For one family, it was a messy mudroom. For another, their kitchen was a dumping ground. For a third family, their home office wasn’t working.
Other problems included a laundry room that wasn’t providing a space for exercising, a dining room that had to double as an office, and a daughter’s bedroom that was a disaster.

See “America Gets Organized: Six Families Conquer Their Biggest Clutter Challenges,” which appeared in the October 2007 issue of the magazine.
