Never say later – Hang it, fold it, store it, but put it away. Avoid leaving clothes on a chair or the floor, towels on top of the dryer or dishes in the sink. These things pile up quickly and can overwhelm us if something unexpected becomes a priority.
Create an In/Out Box - Think of this as a space, bin or basket where you keep items to go to the dry cleaners, keep store returns or things you’ve bought and are on the fence about. Since closets are the most challenging, I keep a triple laundry sorter in my closet for these items rather than cluttering my bedroom or some random area. I check it before I head to the dry cleaner or go shopping. Works like a charm.
