Tips & Tricks
Quick Organization
An hour a week or just fifteen minutes a day is all that is required to keep your kitchen functioning properly. In most homes the kitchen is the command center of the family. Keeping this area free of paper clutter, homework and mail will result in an organized home.
Designate a specific place for important documents and each time paper enters your home immediately place it in its home, shred it, or toss it. Filing systems and organizing containers can also be very helpful and time saving.
Check out these great tips on paper organization that can help keep your home clutter free and you from being stressed.
