Clutter: For @aarpmagazine and an article around the subject of hoarding and its psychological effects play on the family as a whole. The article also touched on the fact that those individuals who are more tidy live longer. @aarpmagazine #clutter #clutterfree #hording @featureshoot @itsnicethat @ignant @newyorkerphoto @gupmagazine @foam_magazine @tpj @aint-bad @somewheremagazine @thephotographersgallery #photoillustration
We all have things that simply don’t belong to any category, but stuffing your designated “junk drawer” will lead to mess in no time.
It might be a pain, but if you clean up after yourself as you cook, you’ll easily avoid the pile of dishes when you’re done.
Not Sorting Mail
Sorting mail at the moment it comes in will make your life easier in the long run. Make sure to store important documents in a safe place and discard anything you don’t need.
Clothes on Chair
We all do this – day after day, clothes that are not clean enough to go back in the closet but not dirty enough to go to laundry end up on a chair, and the pile keeps getting bigger. Sort your clothes as soon as you take them off and forget about the chair habit.
