#13 The BOOM Box
The letters in BOOM box stand for Broken Odd Or Missing and that's exactly the kind of stuff that should be stored in your home's BOOM box. That stuff that clutters up your kitchen window sill, finds its way into your junk drawer, or takes up some other space that should be used for more immediate projects; put it in the BOOM box. The BOOM box does not just have to be the storage space for the broken and misplaced. Those odd items that you know you'll need someday but you're not sure where to store...they go in this box. Among other things, our family's BOOM box is the permanent location of a whistle, a bag of tiny drink umbrellas and an EZ Pass for the New Jersey Turnpike.
My point. Sometimes you have to think inside the box to be successful at organizing your space.
