Decluttering Flat Surfaces in your Home


Any flat surface in the home is a major clutter magnet that needs to be cleared. It becomes a habitual practice to just place items on any countertop as it is very convenient and easy to do. However, cluttered surfaces create visual and mental chaos within the home. Clear the flat surfaces and restore some calm and serenity into your home once again. Below are the three most-probable cluttered surfaces within the home space and a guide and where to start clearing them.

Kitchen Counter: Every home has that one kitchen counter where a dozen of items are simply put because it is convenient. No matter the size or shape, everybody  sees it as an area to place their items. Since the kitchen is the hub of family activity, the kitchen counter in particular attracts extensive clutter including spare tupper ware, dirty dishes, and even the daily mail.  To clear the kitchen countertop, simply set aside 15 minutes per day to place all the items where they need to go. It will create a relaxing atmosphere within the kitchen and allow you to feel in control for the home. With these 15 minutes a day, the kitchen counter will be nice and decluttered.
