Two Layer Rule

Minimal-beforeafter-1

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 myselfΒ “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 knewΒ that an overpacked utensil drawerΒ could cause so much stress?!

  1. This is great! Thank you for sharing your experience and ideas. Over Thanksgiving I tackled a very small corner of my apartment and it felt great to have it organized and to throw away and recycle a bunch of stuff I didn’t need! The kitchen is next on my list. Thanks for the inspiration!
