Have you noticed that if you don’t notice when one item is out of place, there’s suddenly a pile of “stuff” there? Somehow, that one item gives everyone permission to do the same. In order to be organized, everything needs to be put away properly, all the time.

Maybe you or your family say “I’ll just put this here for now.” When will you actually put it where it belongs? Wouldn’t it be just as easy to do that first?
