Even the most organized person sometimes just throws away things in a corner. Don’t feel guilty but accept that a certain amount of chaos is normal. One of the best ways to keep keep chaos under control is to allow certain chaos corner in your home, such as:
- A basket somewhere in the living room with magazines, newspapers, games, etc.
- A chair of a sofa to collect bags or clothes
- A drawer for stuff
- A box with objects related to hobbies or other interests
It is important that you only allow chaos at these places. Otherwise clutter will slowly but surely spread from there into other areas of your home. Once per week it might also be a good idea to have a look at the chaos zones and to give them a quick brush up.
