It’s called the “One Touch” Rule.
Ready to revolutionize the way you clean and declutter your home?
Here’s how it works – when you’re putting things away in your house, pick up one item at a time and don’t put it down until it’s in its proper place…only touch it once.
This quick little rule helps your simplicity because it forces you to stay focused, and it helps you conquer your cleaning/decluttering one item at a time.
Trash gets thrown away/recycled right away.
Clothes quickly get folded and put away.
The things you want to declutter immediately get put in a sack for the thrift store.
This rule can also be applied to answering emails, cleaning the bathroom, craft projects…just about anything. The idea is to accomplish tasks in one go, instead of leaving a slew of things “half-finished”.
It’s a pretty simple little trick, but it helps me keep our living space under control, and keeps me from getting distracted when I’m trying to get things done!
