Tossing Mail on the Kitchen Counter

Tossing Mail on the Kitchen Counter

Paper piles up easily most especially if you have a habit of leaving mail on the counter or the entryway table, and it's something that we just unconsciously do because we could be tired and the last thing we'd want to do is to sort out bills.

What we can do about this is to place a small wastepaper basket on the counter or the entryway so we can toss out the unnecessary subscriptions right away. If possible, go for online billing.

Throwing Everything in the Closet

Throwing Everything in the Closet

Most of us have the habit of throwing everything into the closet and pretend that everything's been nicely cleaned up, but you can't forever ignore the fact that this won't make it easier for you to clean later.

What we can do about this is to install shelves that reach down to the floor so that we'll be forced to store and find a home for it in the shelves.

Piling Clothes on a Chair in Your Bedroom

Piling Clothes on a Chair in Your Bedroom

Most of us have a chair just for the pile of clothes we throw around due to convenience, however, having a chair clothes pile can discourage us from being organized.

What we can do about this is to invest in a laundry hamper that has a lid. We can hide the dirty clothes when we need to, while saving the "this still smells clean" for later.

Leaving Shoes Around the House

If you have kids or a big family, you're probably used to seeing shoes scattered all around the house, and while it might be convenient, it's all around messy and no one is not distressed in the middle of a mess.

What we can do about this is to add a shoe storage to the entryway or the mud room and get into the habit of taking your shoes off before entering the house.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Ghazala Begum
