Declutter the Home

Tidying up after ourselves, or our family members, is an inevitable part of life. The entropy principle of the universe states that everything steadily falls into disarray, unless of course we take time to tidy things up. This is a bothersome chore, though we can obtain some satisfaction from the end result. But we will have more time for more fulfilling tasks if we find ways to minimize the mess, or to clean it up in less time.

  • Buy shoe racks so that shoes stay tidy. Or shoe hangers
