In the comments section of an article published on Apartment Therapy, a reader cleverly pointed out that items in the home "have a place they gravitate to."
"They just do. I swear," the reader added. "Usually, it's where they get used but, not always and it's not always wherever you THINK it might belong either."
The key to keeping your house mess free is to put items where they want to go.
"Stop trying to change your habit and just change your habitat," the anonymous reader wrote. "Because, the honest truth is that if you haven't managed to get yourself to put those items where you THINK they should go by now, chances are, you just ain't gonna do it."
We think they might be onto something.
