My basket, my sanity

So, there are things that I do in my home that make life easier for me (and thus, for everyone, lol).

My home is filled with love and laughter – and with the five people that make it so. The five of us have stuff, and sometimes most times, that stuff is a bit out of place.

As I wrote about 2 years ago, I clean my home for the people that live IN it, not for the ones who MAY stop by ocassionally. However, my job is not a housekeeper. I do the best that I can, but my energies go to enjoying life with my tribe.

Nevertheless, I do have to find a system that works for us to keep things relatively clutter-free. One of those tools is this:


This basket helps keep me sane! Instead of feeling as though all my belongings have to go to their proper home EVERY time, I can use my basket to collect them as a holding bin. That way I can feel that things are under control until I have the time to put those items away.

Genius, right? Haha I am sure that you have a trick or two that you use to impose order on the chaos of stuff. What is your favorite goto tip? Please share it with me in the comments below. I will share some of the best ones on social media with my readers!

Here’s to making things easier,

  1. I rely entirely too much on the basket, but it does relieve me from clutter. The problem is, I never get around to putting the items away in a timely manner. lol. (:
