“Keep a lost & found basket in a central location where family members can stash things they find lying around the house and look for things they have lost.” – Harold Taylor
I do this and it works!
I use it a lot. Way more than the rest of the family. Since I like everything “more” neat and organized than everyone else, it makes me crazy when things are lying around, out-of-place. “Everything in its place” is my motto. Using a basket, bin or box to coral wayward items quickly makes the space look more organized and provides a central location for all family members to look for items that are “lost”. It’s quick and easy. You can choose to walk the circuit in your home once everyday to collect things or just grab as you go through out the day. You can create order in no-time-flat!
