The more life you've built, it's likely, the more "things" you have. Whether furniture, home decor or kids' projects from the past. There's no better way to keep things neat + clean than a purposefully pondered storage system to keep each room high, mighty and totally pristine.
Another thing I've learned is swapping normal for grand - trade in your plastic wastebin for a shiny, gold trashcan. It'll make you much less hasty + more graceful in pursuit, because filthy-ing up gold is like spitting on precious loot.
Be gone, bits + bobs - thrown around, no more. You now reside in fine acrylic or a fancy spade, all the more. And all those important papers that never seem to surface, come out from the cracks and crevices + live out your intended purpose! Separated, shoved and folded never seems to work - we must send you, quick and steadily, to your inanimate, roll-away clerk.
Whatever mess it may be - there is always a solution. Messy places and spaces are the Gods of bad-juju pollution!
