Neat & Tidy 2012: September - Clutter Spots

Raise your hand if you have at least 1 place in your home that tends to collect junk!

Now, keep your hand up if you have more than 1 place like this at your house..

Don't panic! I have them too - I call them Clutter Spots. 

Clutter Spots are places where everything tends to collect - a junk drawer, a cupboard you just throw things into when you're tidying in a hurry, the top of a counter, etc.

Mine are:

  • On top of my freezer
  • On my dining room table
  • In my bedside table drawer
  • In my handbag
Now most people have places like this in their home and that's completely normal & ok - it's what you do with your Clutter Spots that really counts!

The way I see it, you have 3 choices:

  1. Ignore the Clutter Spots in your home & when they fill up, just find a new place to put your clutter (too messy!)
  2. Train yourself & your family to not make of use clutter spots at all (too hard!)
  3. Embrace the habit and make clearing it out part of your regular housework routine (much better!)
So this month for Neat & Tidy we will be clearing out those Clutter Spots, giving you fresh surfaces to work with! 

Here's your free checklist: I've listed some common Clutter Spots on it, so just match them up with your house or use the blank page to fill in your own Clutter Spots :)

So, go ahead and:
  • download your checklist
  • complete 1 zone each week
  • enjoy your clutter free home!
