Organizing Principles 5 & 6

Standard

Keep everything visible.

Does this mean keep everything out, and never use closets, drawers and pantries?

NO……it means, even when using these spaces, organize them in a way that allows you to see everything you have. Which brings us to the priciple:

Have  enough room for everything you store.

Don’t use drawers to jumble piles, or stack  items on top of other items – this leads to “out of sight, out of mind” syndrome, which has us hunting frenetically for items and re-purchasing what we already have.

  1. That is seriously true! If I can’t see something I forget it’s there and either buy another to replace it or just never use it. I think it’s time to buy some containers for my drawers so I stop losing things!!
