Decluttering is about having less stuff isn’t it?
However… In some cases it’s simply sensible to have multiples of Really Useful Things in different rooms.
Scissors for example.
Instead of hunting through the junk drawer, or walking all the way downstairs to get the only pair of working scissors in the house…
Try making a special place for scissors in the main rooms where you need them.
- Bedroom – labels and threads
- Family room – spontaneous crafts and opening packages
- Garage – cutting tape and snipping zip ties
This theory applies to all sorts of things – glasses, lip balm, tissues. Just remember to keep them tidy and always, always:
Put Them Back Where They Belong.
