Growing up with a brother and two sisters, I was always "the organised one".
My kids room, I'll have a separate post about it soon
My parent house was very clean and tidy thanks to my mother. Somehow it was decided between my siblings that I would continue in my mothers footsteps.
And for a while I did fine. Growing up my room was always clean and super organized, and continued to be that way after I got married. But once my kids were born, it became harder and harder, and I felt like I was not living up to my genetic potential.
It frustrated me. A lot.
And then I noticed something. My parents house was always full of baskets - all kinds. And there was never lose clutter anywhere.
So I designed a basket of my own, and it's made things much better.
Toys? In the bin. Newspapers? In the bin. Wifi cables in a strange place by the door? Just put it in a bin.
So even though my storage bin can't clean floors or windows, it's very helpful to have a designated place for each thing around the house, and a designated place for loose things with no place at all.
Until next time,
