Corner The Clutter


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

When my house gets messy and it starts to feel overwhelming, I don't try to clean it perfectly right away. I designate one corner of a room (or big laundry basket) to hold all the bits and pieces that need to be put somewhere else, and clean the rest of the room. It saves a lot of running around the house in circles putting things away and makes "most" of the room feel organized quickly. Then I can deal with the pile of stuff more easily.

    This will work great for when my children aren't sure where something goes.

    This is a great idea. I will try that with the kids room instead of throwing all of it away. Thanks.

    The laundry basket idea sounds great. That or a box will hold stuff that "belongs elsewhere" while you straighten.
