Let’s admit it. We all have a dumping ground in our homes. It might be a corner of the kitchen counter. It might be a chair in the bed room or even the elliptical machine in the office. It could even be an entire room. The dumping ground is the place where random stuff gets piled and stacked until it is in danger of toppling over.
I’m not backed up by scientific research here but my guess is that 95% of us have at least one dumping ground in our home. For me it tends to be a corner of my kitchen counter where mail collects and my dining room which is rarely used for eating but frequently holds school and work projects, donations waiting to go to Goodwill and often my husband’s bike and bike tools.
What can we do to reduce the size of the dumping ground or maybe even eliminate it all together?
