Simple is Sustainable


This phrase has become one of my go-to decluttering mantras—specifically when creating systems to prevent clutter. The simpler the system, the better.

My husband and I both work full-time jobs and don’t want to take the time to organize or clean all the time.

By creating simple systems, like only having one to two layers of items in a cabinet, our things basically organize themselves. Since we have way less stuff and our storage systems are simple, tidying now only takes fifteen minutes and isn’t a chore. The habit of tidying has become sustainable because it doesn’t require my entire mental space to accomplish.

Here are some simple tricks that have helped us foster a easy-to-clean, tidy home.
