"No Home" Items, or How to Manage Clutter that Doesn't have a Place

Whether you have our adult chore charts, our kids' room reset chart, or our clutter buster, you'll notice stickers for managing clutter. We've made clutter a priority because research shows that it can have a profound impact on your mental health. When there's chaos in your physical home, you feel chaotic inside, too.

Let's talk about the "things that do not have a place," otherwise known as "No Home Items."

No Home Items are items that don't have a place. The scissors belong in the kitchen drawer, the pillows belong on the couch, the kids' artwork belongs ... where? These are the things that get piled up on the counters and tables or get shoved in a junk drawer, never to be seen again (until you're looking for the scissors).

Part of resetting a room can involve putting these "no home" items into a box to deal with later. When assigned to "clear counter clutter" or "reset a room," it's your job to put away the dishes, the laundry, and the things that have a place to go (i.e. the scissors). Then you put the things that *don't* have a home in the box. This box can be kept somewhere out of the way, and dealing with its contents is a separate task.
