Did you know that you can simply the process of organizing by thinking of it as having the right number of items in the right place? Organizing isn't about color-coordinated bins, hand-lettered labels, or other products that promise an orderly home.
Decluttering helps you own the right number of items. Organizing those items in the right place means that you'll be able to find and use the things you own - and then easily store them for future use.
Today, clean out a single kitchen cabinet and return the things you use all the time to the shelves that are easiest to reach. Store items that get used a few times a year to the highest or lowest shelves (depending on how heavy the objects are).
Eliminate things that you don't, won't, or can't use.
We'll return to other cabinets on future days.
