Organizing: Find A Place For Everything

The best tip is one you have heard a million times ... A place for everything, and everything in it's place.

This really works if you make sure you find a spot in your home for anything and everything you will not have clutter - that is if you put it away. Typically I repeat this in my head like a mantra as I put things away. When I move somewhere new, I have made this my purpose while unpacking this way I start fresh. I then will redo things hundreds of times over the years to make it suit new things. Seems simple and normal but if you live by it, it works!

Greetings, All TF Readers,

I have trouble figuring out where everything is supposed to go. I understand what things go in general areas, like bathroom, kitchen, living room, but I don't know where all sorts of other things go. I stand around with some thing in my hand, wander around a while, then just set it on any horizontal surface. Will someone come show me where to put everything?
