Have you ever noticed how everyone comes in and dumps their stuff on the countertop, turning it into a clutter zone in 2.2 seconds? Find homes for the regularly dropped items and you’ll appreciate the new “open spaces”.

  • Sort items currently on countertop and return items to their homes. Have a bin or basket for items you regularly use in that area, such as post-its, pens, spare change, and frequently-used supplies.
  • Make a list of items that typically get left on the counter on a regular basis and then designate homes for them.
  • Think hooks on the wall for purses, book bags, and keys, and designated areas in kids rooms for their musical instruments, sports equipment, etc..
