Staying organized means you need to constantly put things back in their organized spot. I do however wish it magically stayed organized all by itself! I suggest implementing a “5 minute pick up-clean up”. It’s as easy as setting the timer and putting things away. It works great with the entire household. When I do this I give very specific directions to each member of the household… for example “Man-Child, please pick up your Legos and put them back in their container, then put them back in your room.” I find that most everyone ignores the timer and keeps putting their stuff away… including me!
Do you have a room or area in your home that needs organization help?
