Q: What happens when you don’t make a habit of putting things away when you are done with them?
A: Those things pile up until you are forced to spend extra time putting them all away later.
The result is a difference in lifestyles. One lifestyle is filled with clutter while the other is not, generally speaking. When you live a life of clutter, it becomes an impossible task to find things when you need them. The efficiency of your life suffers and just about everything you do takes more effort than it should.
Putting things away when you are done with them seems like a trivial thing to do. Most people do not like to do it, but when you understand the difference it creates in lifestyles, it becomes a no-brainer.
