How do you know that you have a clutter haven? In this article we will address those area that are prone to become cluttered quickly and help you know when it is out of hand.

BALTIMORE, April 14, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- How do you know you have any issue with the clutter in your home? First you must define what is clutter. Clutter is when items that you have accrued over time start taking up more and more of your space and you do not know what to do with it. A person must identify the areas ofclutter build up before it gets out hand or if it is out of hand you do not realize it already. These often requires organizing. For the purposes of this article will be identifying these areas as clutter havens. A primary offender in this circumstance is often your bedroom closet.

The bedroom closet is generally the first place one must look to identify an organizational or clutter issue. Often times these items that we have forgotten about when cleaning our own main living areas in the bedroom. These could be items of clothing that we only wore once for a special occasion or a gift that was ill-given. We throw these items in the back of the closet or on the floor and forget we even have them. Over time though these items keep piling up till it is out of control, most of the time is that people think I will take care of it later on. Putting it off though can make it a dangerous step towards becoming a clutter haven closet. Another area that could be considered a clutter haven is the basement.

The basement of many homes is a storage area for items that are seasonal in nature or items that we have chosen to have forgot about. Items in this area of our homes tend to be neglected and could lead to other potential hazards depending on their functionality and condition. Many people do not realize that the key to keeping this area somewhat organized is boxing, but even then you can have too many items in the boxes for your own good and safety. Also, people often identify this area to be the place to throw old items, because they purchased a new item, which made the other one obsolete. There probably countless old electronic devices in people's basements, and kitchen items, which brings us to our next culprit the kitchen.

The kitchen is one of the most clutter prone places in your household and you may not even realize it. Kitchens tend to become cluttered since it is the main area for cooking, and is often the first area you enter when you come to the home. What often is a big problem even in the digital age is newspapers, we tend to read them in the kitchen and leave them, there so they tend to pile up quickly. Another place for clutter to build up is the lower cabinets, where old Tupperware that is missing lids are placed and obsolete appliances are placed. Also, old plates, mugs, cups, etc. tend to build up as families grow bigger and then grow smaller, often though we forget that families tend to contract as people grow older. A place that is one of the prime culprits of being a clutter haven is the garage.

Garages are often an area that is overlooked in the sense that they are an area that people tend not identify as a main living area. However, we store our vehicles in there, outdoor lawn items, and our basic home maintenance items in there. We store pretty much anything and everything in a garage. Garages over time tend to be neglected and are a prime culprit for a being a clutter haven. For some people it can be tools since they forget that they have a hammer, certain screwdrivers, and other miscellaneous tools, so they go out and buy more. Other items in there are old lawn furniture, that one might've replaced and people think I'll sell it at the next yard sale which never comes. Which comes back to the issue of what one must consider clutter.

Clutter havens are a problem for everyone, just some more extreme than others. You need to look at the areas that were mentioned above. We can help you address these major issue and help you deal with the clutter havens of your home.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video.
