How Important Is Proper Storage?

More and more we are caught running around and not stopping to take a breath. There is work, meetings, kids, activities, house cleaning, meal prepping and more. The list never really stops, so neither do you. Wouldn’t it be nice if just one day you could come home and all the cleaning would be done? Everything would be in the right place. For most, this is definitely on the wish list. But, we run into walls when it’s time for ideas and everything remains where it is.

To quit running the normal cycle, one has to know what difference it will make to put the pedal to the medal. If you only think about it increasing your daily work, then it is never going to happen.

In the beginning, you are absolutely right. It will be a chore to put everything together and find the right placement for your belongings. What you need to do is think past that.

Because of our scheduling and lift in general, things tend to be chaotic. You lay things down and leave them there, even as you know you should do something about it. One piece of paper doesn’t seem like a problem, but it encourages the behavior further.

Each time you walk by with a few pieces of mail and you see a pile started on the counter, what do you do? Unconsciously, set the new mail there creating a bigger pile. When you think about it, it’s kind of like the more you see, the more you do.

Let’s say you had created an organizational system with the mail. Maybe it’s still in the kitchen, but you have a wall system that will hold mail. There is a spot for bills, personal and even an area for shredding. Each time you get the mail and walk into the kitchen, you will notice the mail on the wall neatly placed. A simple placement like this helps one remember that mail does not go on the counter.

Expert organizers tend to make the job of organization a tough experience. But, not everyone can handle that and then all they do is get discouraged. Are you one that gets discouraged? If so, don’t let the complex systems they have get you in a bad mood. Just think about what you have and how you can use it to help.

In the instance of the mail, you could even staple some folders to the wall and make them hold the mail. No buying there, just using what is already in the home.

Proper storage will help you lessen the chaotic environment that already exists. The reason we use the word proper, is because you can have storage and it not help one bit. Like the above scenario, the countertop would be storing the mail. Not really the countertops job, thus not proper storage.

If you can wrap your mind around the usage of proper storage, the chaos will begin to lessen!
