A place for everything and everything in its place.
It sounds so easy. And really it is; this concept is the basis for all physical organisation. If you have one areato keep ‘like’ items, then these items have a home. If items have a home, they don’t lie around as clutter.
It’s only when you don’t know what to do with something that it lies around surfaces, taking up room, causing stress and mess; it becomes clutter.
Make “a place for everything’ your mantra if you want to get organised and instil some systems into your home or office.
But the key again is that all items have a home, but the limiting factor is there should only be ONE home. For on-going organisation don’t have three homes for the same item. Pull all similar items together, allocate them a home and label that home for ongoing maintenance of order.
And ditch the three miscellaneous drawers (you’re allowed one).
A place for everything and everything in its place – one place only.
