Little Things Make All the Difference
In organizing, sometimes a little thing makes all the difference.
Don't know why you can't keep your kitchen island cleared off? It could be because there's no designated place to put new mail for each family member.
Do your clothes pile up on the arm chair in your bedroom so often that no one ever sits in it? A few pegs on the wall for your robe and your thrice-worn-between-washes dungarees could solve the problem.
Is your laundry room clogged up with dirty and clean clothes? It could be time for a sort & purge of the things in your closets and bureaus to make more space to put things away.
Can't find your car keys? It's likely you need to designate a new permanent storage spot – other than your purse or your pocket – and train yourself to use it. A hook or dish in your mudroom would keep your keys front and center.
The answers seem too simple. That's because it's easier for an outsider to see the broken pieces of your organizing systems. You don't see it because you're too close to it. But, some organizing problems can be simple to fix.
If you have a nagging organizing problem that seems like it should have a simple answer, click on the Tidy Cove website and let me know about it. Maybe I have that simple answer. Sometimes little things make all the difference.
