Recently a friend staying with me shared an observation about my home: when she needed a pen, there it was…or a pair of scissors, exactly where she needed them. Her remark made me realize that I had organized my home for the little every day items that we need.
Where do I keep paper and pen?
Near the phone
In the kitchen (where a small drawer is filled with paper pads, sticky notes, pens and pencils)
Next to my bed; read more about organizing your bedside table
In the bathroom, for all those great ideas that you get in the shower
Where to keep other important items:
Scissors on every floor, near the paper and pens (having duplicates comes in handy)
Essential tools, like small screwdrivers, tape measure, flashlight in the kitchen in my “junk drawer”
Keys near the back door
Chargers in the kitchen
These are small items, but it can be frustrating when we can’t find them when we need them. Try to organize the essential everyday items in your home and feel more in control.
