There are simple things we love doing to help avoid clutter in our home -

  • Go through mail on a daily basis and throw out or put away every piece before the day is over.  We always do this as soon as we bring the mail into our home, but if there is something else that needs instant attention just make sure it's done before going to bed. 
  • Do NOT let dishes accumulate in the sink!  YIKES!!  That becomes an unwelcome chore far too quickly and easily!  Have it be a cardinal rule that there are never dishes left in your sink!
  • Keep ALL horizontal surfaces cleaned off of any clutter!  Before you leave a room, make sure those things are put away.  That includes countertops, dressers, shelves, you name it!  This will be a habit you will grow to become thankful for.  It gives a clean and clutter-free feel to any room.
  • The tried-but-true "have a place for everything and put it in its place!!"  If you don't have a place for something, you probably don't need it or there's something else you don't need where it needs to go!  This is the perfect way to declutter as you go!
  • Fold each load of laundry when you take it out of the dryer!  Who in the world wants to fold a zillion loads of laundry in a pile?  Not us!!  It is super easy to fold one load at a time, even if you don't have time to put it away immediately.  It is much easier to put away when it is already folded and in piles according to what room it goes into!  Another habit you will be grateful for!

Those are just a few of the habits we believe will help keep the clutter from your life!!  There is something peaceful about having that clutter gone!  It changes the feeling in your home!  Who doesn't want a peaceful feeling at home?

Remember - peace comes with something simple we can all choose to live with -

We hope we've given you something to think about -
