Teach your kids how to sort.
Use a hanger system to determine which clothes you wear most.

If you want to see what utensils you’re really using, Peter recommends the cardboard box test. “Take all the utensils out of your drawers, put them in a cardboard box,” he says. “For the next month, whenever you use one of these utensils, put it back in the drawer.
