Never put anything anywhere “just for now.”

A simple rule of thumb to embed in your mind that will make a remarkable difference in keeping your environment organized and free of clutter. Believe me it works. πŸ™‚ And don’t think that you save yourself time when you’re in a rush by just setting the pair of shoes there “for now”, or throwing the garment over a chair instead of hanging it in the closet where it belongs. To put something where it belongs may take a bit of effort, but only a mere few extra seconds generally, and will make a huge cut in your cleaning.

Put the comb back when you’re done with it, replace the book on the shelf when you’re done reading, hang the tool back in it’s place when you’re not using it… Keep your home and workspaces clean by remembering everything has a place, and purge the thought Just for now from your mind.
