As I was cleaning out, I discovered that if I had to rummage through more than two layers of things in a cabinet, drawer, or closet to find something I would end up a bit annoyed and stressed out. So, I made it a goal to allow myself two layers of things in my kitchen drawers, pantry, closet, and etc.
I combed through each space that needed to surrender to the two layer rule and asked myself “what can be tossed to make it two layers?” Or, I searched for another storage option if I couldn’t get rid of anything.
It’s made a huge difference when I’m looking for things on the fly. Who knew that an overpacked utensil drawer could cause so much stress?!
