Three golden rules from pro­fes­sional or­gan­iser Natalie Jane of Be Or­gan­ised, be­or­gan­ised.co.nz.

Homes+ (Australia) - - BEFORE & AFTER -

My num­ber-one rule for a clut­ter-free home is the “one touch” rule. Every time you touch an item, put it back where it be­longs, rather than mov­ing it from one place to an­other. (If I take off my shoes, I put them away. When I get out of bed, I make it.) 2

Every item in your home needs a func­tional place to live that makes sense to you and the peo­ple you live

with. Once you have es­tab­lished a place for your items, the “one touch” rule be­comes much eas­ier to im­ple­ment. 3 Tidy up every day. All homes re­quire daily main­te­nance. You may choose to tidy up once a day or sev­eral times through­out the day, de­pend­ing on your life­style. Choose a time that will suit you, get the fam­ily on board and make it fun.
