Staying organized is an ongoing, uphill battle against the daily threat living, being and messily existing presents to the order of your home. Let’s be honest, human beings are not inherently organized — we have to work at it. When we’ve undressed at the end of the day the last thing we want to do is put our clothes away or in the hamper. When we take a book off of the shelf to reference something, the chances of that book making it back to its original spot as opposed to another home on the coffee table or couch is slim to none. It’s easier that way, and while we want our houses to feel lived in, there’s also a calm that comes with order. Staying organized is all about small daily changes that amount of big results — and having the right containers to organize in and on can help you reach your goal and contribute to the fun.
