12 Tips to Have Less Chaos at Home

  1. Have company over once in a while so the house gets cleaned.
  2. If it takes less than a minute, do it now. (hang up your coat, put your coffee mug in the dishwasher, put away anything you took out)
  3. If you have two or more things that serve the same function, keep the newest or best one and get rid of the others.
  4. Every day, toss or put away five things that are out of place.
  5. When de-cluttering a room, start at the doorway and go right or left. Then if
    youíre interrupted, you can see where you stopped.
  6. Donít de-clutter and clean the same day.
  7. Keep all your house information (insurance, warrantees, receipts, directions to program VCR) together in a file, binder, drawer, desk, box or paper bag.
  8. Never climb stairs empty-handed as long as thereís something that should be
    taken upstairs.
  9. Donít let something come into your home unless you have a place for it.
  10. Glance over your left shoulder every time you leave a room. Pick up the clutter
    you spot and take it with you.
  11. Learn to delegate.
  12. Learn to ignore. Relationships are more important than chasing dust bunnies.
