6. Every Object Needs a “Home”.
Clutter is usually a result of owning too much stuff, and not having an appropriate place to put it. When this happens, piles of stuff might start to accumulate around the house. For every category of item, you should know where it needs to be put away. If you have kids, this is very important for them to know where their items go, too. For example, maybe you can have a special bookshelf or toy chest for your kids to put their objects away.
