Hardworking multi-purpose areas like the family room benefit from a core principle of clutter control: containment.
Heading clutter into containers makes sense in a shared space like the family room. Using open containers to group and store stray objects keeps order in a busy space.
Consider ideas for clutter containment today in the New Year Cleaning Challenge.
To keep the house clean without a lot of effort, make use of "wait time" in your day. Wipe down the refrigerator doors as you wait for water to boil. Sort the magazine stack during television commercials, or straighten the coat closet when waiting for a family member. Micro-cleaning makes good use of spare minutes, and goes a long way to keeping things organized on the fly.
