Quick Organising Tip – Find a home for my phone

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

I mentioned in the 1st Step to Decluttering – Create organising goalspost, that I always loose the phone.  What I did mean was the home phone, which never get put back on the charger (aahhh so frustrating, my fault totally), but sometimes my mobile phone goes walkies too.  I’m happy to say I have created a new habit for myself and placed my mobile and sometimes keys (or they are usually in the car)  in this cute basket at the end of my buffet.  Perfect for when hubby comes home, he can dump his wallet and phone here too, rather than cluttering up the kitchen bench, as we all know that is a great dumping ground.

I repurposed the basket from a Body Shop Gift received a while ago.  There’s that word again ‘repurposed’ – my new motto for this year, reuse and repurpose before buying something new!

At the end of this buffet unit I also place things that need completing that day, eg, items to give to friends, or cards to post, shopping to return back etc.  Create an area where you can keep it where you can see it, will remind you to get it done!!

love the big deep drawers in this buffet unit!!
