Organization Inspiration for High Traffic Areas
“Organization isn’t about perfection. It’s about efficiency. And reducing stress and clutter, saving time and money, and improving your quality of life.”
Knowing NaNa had a proclivity to misplace things, I’d organize her home from top to bottom. A Libra, she loved the finer things in life—and lots of them. Remember the rule, “When you bring something in, toss something out?” NaNa didn’t get the memo.
I’d pare down her cluttered tchotchkes and box half of them up. I’d promise to swap them out the next time I visited. By my next visit, all the tchotchkes would be back on full display.
Your home is an extension of your energy. That’s why cleaning your home, rearranging furniture, organizing your closet and getting rid of clutter have a profound impact on your mind, body and soul.
ORGANIZATION INSPIRATION FOR HIGH TRAFFIC AREAS
By eliminating the things we don’t love or use, we have far less to organize, clean and maintain. It’s about eliminating the noise so the things we love and use can shine.
“Cleaning and organizing is a practice, not a project.”
The very best way to stay organized is to tidy-up every day. This makes upkeep much easier. Pay attention to your natural habits and create organization systems around those habits. If you remove your shoes by the front door, place them in cubbies or a basket. Tending your garden makes your home a place you want to be.
Avoid dumping things on countertops. When things get dumped, it’s because you haven’t yet created a designated and intuitive space for them to live. Think: hooks for jackets, purses and leashes.
A cluttered environment fosters a cluttered mind. Creating daily organizing habits might seem tedious at first. But oh my gosh, it’s so worth it.
