What areas of your house tend to be "trouble zones"? Areas that no matter how hard you try, they just keep accumulating clutter.
Why do you think things accumulate there?
What do you think would help keep clutter from accumulating in those areas?

Bathroom counter and kitchen table

Why do you think things accumulate there?

They are flat surfaces and my 2yo can't reach everything on them yet.

What do you think would help keep clutter from accumulating in those areas?

Higher shelves and locks

Living room and spare bedroom. The living room is pretty good size and my daughters toys and crafts end up taking the room over. The spare bedroom is a catch all because we "toss" something in there and forget about it. If my daughter would just keep her stuff in her bedroom and playroom upstairs that would take care of the living room. As far as the spare bedroom...we can either lock ourselves out, lol or have another baby....then what to do with all the junk!

Why do you think things accumulate there? The mini fridge is right by the back door and next to the bench so it is a good spot for everyone to clean out their pockets. The half wall accumulates the things that need to go downstairs but I am too lazy at the time to take down there. And the kitchen island is big enough for all those papers that like to pile up.
What do you think would help keep clutter from accumulating in those areas? I just need to be better at picking them up every week than what I am currently.

Why do you think things accumulate there? The kitchen table is my husband's fault he never reads his mail in a timely fashion, my office is where we stash stuff we don't know what to do with

What do you think would help keep clutter from accumulating in those areas? The kitchen table I am no clue I have tried everything with him. My office....have another baby cause then we would have no where to stash stuff and just deal with it at that moment

I have this same problem with my DH...only instead of the kitchen table it is the office desk. I usually end up just throwing it in a bankers box so that I don't have to look for it. Makes him mad at times, but looking at his mess all the time ticks me off all the time. Not to mention it makes it really hard to pay bills when you have to clean the desk off first.
