A lot of times just creating a proper drop zone for your keys, kids backpacks, kids artwork, mail, permission slips, etc. can immediately alleviate the chaos at home. Designate an area for all these “drop” items to go so they don’t create clutter.

When it comes to clutter, most of it is made up of items that we no longer use or need. A common area being in our closets. Create a donation zone in your closet so you can easily get rid of stuff.
