Moving often means you’re finally ready to purge. From donating clothes you never wore to just throwing out that box you haven’t touched since you moved in, a new address often unleashes a devil-may-care attitude in terms of some things.

In terms of myself: So what if I need every single magazine Backstreet Boys have appeared on or ticket stubs to every movie I’ve ever seen? It’s not a problem, it’s a lifestyle—especially when I find ways to expertly display that clutter.

Our pick: This 6-Cube Organizer, Target ($35).
