We all have a spot in the house that becomes a drop zone for small items that we don't want to sort or put away. This is what happens over time when you create bad drop zone habits. By creating a clear vision for your space and needs you can avoid the piling trap. If you need a spot for your keys...make a spot for your keys. If you need a spot for the mail...make a spot for the mail. If you need a spot for small electric appliances and tools...make one. Everything can have it's own home but only if you create one first.
Take a minute and think about what you need according to the piles you are seeing.
Commit to putting items in their proper homes this week. Repeat after me....I will not make piles!
