From work appointments to children’s commitments and school meetings, even the family can be arranged by organizing the different moments of the day in the best possible way saves time and energy.
How to organize the family
Here are the 7 principles to help you achieve this.
- Free surfaces
The table, the kitchen worktop, the shelf at the entrance. Keeping these and other surfaces as free and tidy as possible is a simple gesture that immediately communicates well-being and cleanliness.
2. At hand
The things we use frequently should be placed in the most comfortable and close spaces; objects that we rarely use can end up on the highest shelves of wardrobes or in the most hidden corners of furniture.
3. Rule of 80/20
In 80% of the time we wear 20% of our clothes and use 20% of our objects, the most accessible spaces must be reserved for these.
4. The 3/4 rule
Never fill a space more than 3/4, drawers, cabinets, shelves, and boxes. Leaving at least 1/4 of the free space facilitates access to objects and is faster in storing them.
5. Organize with children
Children learn when they are involved in actions and feel more motivated if they decide what concerns them. So lets involve the little ones in tidying up the house, they will learn to take care of their things, to be more autonomous, and to better manage their space and their time.
6. A home for everything
Every object in the house should have a place where it can be easily found and quickly stored. If all family members know about it, it will be easier to keep order.
7. Communications Center
There must be a single place in the house where everything that comes from outside can flow together. Bills, invoices, letters, brochures, school communications, documents to be processed, list of things to buy, etc.
If we organize a communication center, everything will become easier. There will be a calendar of activities, notepad and pen to write the list of things to buy and to do. This way, everyone is actively collaborating to make things work.
