Regardless of the size of your abode, there needs to be a home for the things we bring in and a command center from which all other homey tasks can flow from. In our abode, those two crucial areas live side by side in a cozy little corner that functions as an extension of the entryway and transitions into the kitchen space. Let's take a look and the pitiful before.
Talk about dumping, well dump no more! Take a look at what some purging, re-assigning, and planning can do.
Here's a closer look at the fabulous file folders.
Uncluttered drop zone
Action center and drop zone together
Ah, another sigh of relief, and another space clean. I can't seem to get enough of that tiny little space. There wasn't much to it, but the gift of re-thinking the space did wonders in the end. Moving the paper towel holder to the other side of the sink was a no brainer; relieving the coin bank of its closet shelf duty, now keeps stray coins corralled when exiting the pants pockets; covering the outlet with a calendar is probably the best stroke of genius I had when updating the space. So often it's the little changes that make the biggest difference. Now that our things have a better home, systems can now keep our home working great. Paper can flow through the house in a much more organized fashion and the hubs can come home and unload his workday onto an uncluttered space.
Do you have an action center and drop zone that are working well for you? Maybe your home is crying out for one or both! I'd love to hear about it.
