Make Sure Storage Areas are Convenient
If you are one of those people who have difficulty
putting things away, make sure that you set up
conveniently located (visible) storage areas that are
accessible. I say visible because (for us folks with ADD)
if it is out of sight, it very often is out of mind and if you
must get up on a ladder to reach it or go to a different
room to access it, you may never actually use it.
Therefore, as professional organizer Julie Morgenstern
suggests, “Store things where you use them to make
them easily accessible. For example, if you do your
bills in the kitchen, store your financial files and
calculator there, not in the spare bedroom upstairs.
Look for where your piles are and create storage there.
