You should implement new systems
Well, it seems that the saying ‘old habits die hard’ applies even after we clean our home, as we still put our mail or other work papers and bills on the dining room or kitchen table, right? So, this is one of the most common organizing mistakes that people still make. Instead, you should opt for new systems that can help you keep your things in order, such as a mini shelf hanging on the wall in which to put all your important papers.
“It’s easy for people to fall back into their original habits, like putting mail on the dining room table instead of a designated basket,” says Juan Carlos Daetz, the home expert at Max Warehouse.
If you have mail or other papers that are not so important, you can recycle them. In fact, you don’t have to fill all your shelves with unnecessary things that you don’t use anymore.
