We don’t have any clutter and can clean the entire house in about 2 hours (what most people call “spring cleaning”). This article helps get you to that point.
It’s nice to know where everything is if you need it.
Another thing, avoid duplicates unless there is a solid reason to have them.
Such reasons are:
- Socks. If one is lost or wears out, you have a replacement when another wears out, if you have 5 pair of the same brand and color.
- Glass cookware. Only for a couple of favorites that are hard to find if you break one.
My desk is the only thing that gets cluttered. When I can’t find something, I spend an hour and clean it off.
