Home View/Clutter Clusters

With Spring-cleaning season approaching, Web site Home-pricecheck.com surveyed 1,130 people nationwide to find out where in their houses they stored clutter. Nearly half the respondents said most of their clutter was hidden away in either a garage, an attic or a basement. The second most common answer: Clutter is stored "everywhere" in the house, according to 33% of respondents.
The cleanest areas: front porches and hallways, where only 1% of those surveyed said they kept their clutter. Also, 8% said they allowed clutter to pile up in their bedrooms, and a fortunate 12% said they had no clutter at all.
