Of course, no robot Stepford wife would ever have clutter around the house, but for those of us in the real world, clutter does indeed happen from time to time. But did you know that it can take five to ten minutes to pick up an entire room? That's it!
But my favorite tip for clutter-free living is the "One Minute Rule". It's very simple: if a small chore would take a minute or less to do, do it right then and there when you realize it needs to be finished! Have a pile of paper that needs to be put in the recycling bin? Do it! See a plate that needs to be put in the dishwasher! Do it! If you follow the One Minute Rule throughout the day, you'll find that you space stays nicer, longer, and that you're not having to spend an evening "picking up"!
