Is it really possible to have “A place for everything and everything in its place”? We’re going to find out! Today we’re breaking it down and finding a home for 3 common clutter culprits.
Earrings are the 1st under fire! Bethany referred to this inspiration Pin which she refused to attempt when she realized her true nature.

Here was my short-lived attempt at hanging up my earrings.
Now we both use pretty bowls for our earrings and hair clips, just like Martha Stewart of course.

Lost toys were my constant clutter; it seemed that we were always finding (or stepping on) a board game piece or small toy. Bigger toys were easy to toss back into the kids’ room; but these all belonged to a certain set like board games or Legos.
I corralled this constant clutter by making a permanent home for all of those tiny out of place toy pieces. I chose a small drawer in our TV stand I finally got around to painting. Whenever we are missing a game piece, we know exactly where to look.
I had a similar experience with our water cups I forgot to mention on the podcast.
