ADHD HACKS: Why Every Little Thing Needs Its Own Spot

So, you’ve just blitzed through a decluttering marathon, and your place is looking pretty darn good, right? But now comes the tricky part—keeping it that way without turning it into a full-time job. Let’s chat about why every little thing needs its own spot and how to do this without it feeling like a chore. It’s all about making your space work for you, not the other way around. Let’s dive in!

Why Every Little Thing Needs Its Own Spot 🏠✨

Picture this: You’re on a mission to find that one book or gadget, and it’s like it’s vanished into thin air. Annoying, huh? Here’s the deal: When everything has its own spot, you cut down on the hide-and-seek game. It’s about making life smoother so you can spend less time searching and more time doing the fun stuff.

Fresh Start, Fresh Vibes 🚀

After you’ve cleared the clutter, it is the perfect time to decide where things should go. It feels good, like setting up a new phone or starting a fresh notebook. This step is all about creating a vibe in your home that makes you feel calm and in control. Look at your habits and routines and set yourself up for success.  

Finding the Right Room 🚪

Take a look at what you’ve decided to keep. Where do you use these things the most? If it’s something you lounge with in the living room, let it live there. Kitchen stuff? Obviously, kitchen-bound. It’s kinda like putting puzzle pieces together in a way that makes sense for your life.

For example, if you always forget your reusable grocery bag at home, keep it in the trunk of your car. That’s their new home. This means that after you bring in your groceries, you take the empty grocery bag back out to the car right away.  

And Then, the Perfect Spot in That Room 📍

Now, get specific. In your bedroom, for example, decide where clothes, books, and other bits and bobs should go. It’s about creating little zones, so when you need something, you know exactly where to grab it from. Think of it as organizing your space in a way almost as intuitive as scrolling through your favorite app.

For example, if you want to simplify your morning routine, keep all the stuff you need handy, even if it’s not aesthetically pleasing. For example, keep a stack of facecloths by the sink instead of in the linen closet.  

Tip: For every routine you have, try to reduce the number of steps it takes to accomplish it. You will be more likely to stick with a routine if it has fewer steps.

Make It Fun and Visual 🎨👀

  • Visual Cues: Snap some pics of how awesome your place looks when it’s all tidy. These can be your go-to when you need a little nudge to put things back where they belong.
  • Interactive Bits: How about turning tidying up into a mini-game? Maybe challenge yourself to beat the clock when putting things away or treat it like a puzzle, finding the perfect spot for each item.

Real Talk and Handy Hacks 💬🛠

Remember, this isn’t about perfection; it’s about making your day-to-day a bit easier. Share your epic wins and those facepalm moments with friends or family. Sometimes, just talking about it can give you a new idea or make the whole process feel more doable.

And here are a couple of quick ADHD tips:

  • Lost-and-Found Box: A funky box for those “where the heck did this come from?” items can save the day. Make it a weekly ritual to empty it out, and it’ll feel like a treasure hunt.
  • Creative Labeling: Go wild with labels. Use colors, doodles, or whatever makes you smile. It’s like putting your personal stamp on your space.

Alright, you amazing humans, let’s take this organizing thing and turn it into something that feels more like play and less like work. I hope you have enjoyed this blog post about why every little thing needs its own spot. Here’s to a home that gets your vibe and lets you live your best life.
