It’s nothing new. You’ve probably heard these tips before, but there’s a reason they’re classic organizational tips. Did your tip make the list?
Have a place for everything and everything in it’s place. Well, you can have things out and using them, but when you’re done, put it away. It’s simple. Why is it hard? Because we haven’t done two things: Made a place for everything and learned to put things away. The house isn’t going to clean itself; it takes work. And with a good system, that work will become easier and faster.
When it come to your storage space, don’t fill it to capacity because it makes it difficult to put things away when your storage space/containers are filled to the brim. I say 80% is a good target.
Make your organizational system EASY! Store high frequency items where they’re easy to get to and easy to put away. Save the out-of-the-way spaces like the back of the closet, attic or top shelf for things you don’t use often.
