You guys are doing great! Already on week 3 of the 5 Steps to sustainable, organized spaces. It's not been so bad, has it? You started small, right? We're building on each success.
This week we Assign homes for things. After we've Sorted so we know what we have, Purged what we no longer use, need or love, we are left with what is truly useful and important. To organize those items we need to Assign homes for them that make sense for how they are used.
This one requires a little thinking. What do you use frequently, and what can be stored where it takes a little more work to get to? Ladies - most of us carry a purse (some of us carry small suitcases that we call purses), and most of us have a cell phone. If you are a frequent cell phone user, having an exterior pocket on your purse that is easy to get to for your phone is a great idea. Not a big phone user? Store the phone in an interior pocket.
In a kitchen relegate little used appliances to high places, or even another room. I used to keep my mammoth lefse griddle, used only a couple times a year, in a main cupboard where it had to be moved every time we wanted other pans. Now I store it in the basement and only bring it up when I need it.
Frequently used things right at our fingertips in our valuable storage "real estate", less used things stored where they aren't in the way. Easy, right? What's your most challenging item to store? Comment below and we'll figure it out together!
Next week, everyone's favorite, Containerize!!!
