  • Install hooks on the back of the bathroom door to hang towels and robes.

Kitchens:

  • Organize your cabinets into categories such as plates, cutlery, glasses, and plastic containers.
  • Save your counter space for items you use daily. If possible, store your food processor, utensil holder, and mixing bowls in the cupboard.
  • Get in the habit of cleaning out your fridge before you go grocery shopping. This will help to keep items fresh and prevent you from buying unnecessary food.

Miscellaneous:

  • Make sure everything in your house has a designated space and all family members know where everything goes.
  • Add a landing strip (a table by the front door) to store mail, keys, phones, and other bits and bobs that would otherwise clutter up kitchens and living rooms.
  • Place a basket on the coffee table to hold remote controls.
  • Create a family message board that goes in the kitchen to post reminders or a grocery list.
