Storage Baskets

storage basketsI must admit it took me awhile to embrace storage baskets and SEE THROUGH containers.  They can make a huge difference especially when they are pretty. If you are having a hard time figuring out how to arrange things that you need, you might want to go the way of storage baskets. The dollar store is a great place to start.

You can color code and label if you want.


The Evening Routine

no clutterEven when I am DEAD TIRED I manage to get enough energy for the evening routine.That means an item out of place goes back where it belongs. I load the dishwasher, clean out the sink, straighten the counter, toss mail I don’t need, fold laundry and put away the clothes, straighten pillows and blankets in the living room, store the TV remotes in a drawer,  make sure the water dishes for pets are filled, lock all the doors. I straighten everything.

When I get up in the morning I don’t immediately start stressing out because I enjoy the organization of that moment.

It takes practice, but your eye will notice things out of place. And I can’t say I was good at it right away. I had to clean up a number of areas to get it down to something fairly simple that takes about 20 minutes. You can do it too.

Cut the clutter.
