Decluttering is the action of removing any items that no longer serve a purpose or that you no longer need or like. It is a great way to organize your surroundings and minimize what you have. But how ado you organize the things you do value and want to keep?

Let me share my single most important habit with you. I am not sure if I developed this habit over time or if I got inspired by someone else but it feels 100% natural to me.

Here it is: Everything in your home or your office has a designated spot. Look at your surroundings - do you have miscellaneous items flying around? Do things change their spot every day or every other day? That means they don't have a designated spot. Everything you own should have it's own space to live. Your shoes go in the shoe closet, the scissors in the drawer in the kitchen, the TV remote goes on your coffee table...and so on and so forth.

Clutter in your own resembles a lack of intention. If you are looking to approach your life and your work more intentionally, you need to make space for what matters most. And in this case, you are literally making space around you. So here is how you do it:

  1. Look at your surroundings. Does everything have its designated spot? If the answer is no, take some time to assign a space to everything you own

  2. Most importantly - every time you use or touch an item, it goes right back to it designated spot immediately.

By assigning drawers, closets and areas to the things you own, you are making space in your mind. You don't have to think about where to put something, it becomes automatic. And the best part - you prevent clutter. So instead of having to do a big clean up at the end of every day or every week, you organize on the go without even having to think about it.
