This Sparked Me!


This changed my LIFE.
Now - I don't just toss keys, papers,groceries or whatever. I COMPLETE a task. Even if it takes and extra 5 minutes to put everything away, i NEVER have to backtrack or pick things up later. You will have a clean, organized house, desk etc!

    We are in the process of moving and unpacking and this tip is our mantra.
It really helps when you are desperate and have no time to search.

    Great advice. Find a home for an item that is convenient and easy to use. For example, put a command hook where you usually toss your keys

    My husband tells me this all the time. It is better to just put it away or complete a task in the long run but it seems quicker just to toss the keys somewhere... but then I think about how much time I waste when I forgot where I tossed them when I am trying to leave the house. I am going to keep trying to incorporate this into my routine... thanks.
