1. Everything should have its place

1. Everything should have its place


Everything from shoes to cutlery has its own spot. And if you relate to Monica, even your ribbons will have their own spot!

Having your belongings lying around the place can make your home look very cluttered. Think clear surfaces and place your home decor in particular spots for the ultimate finish.

It is a habit you should definitely adopt. It will even prevent you from losing things because you'll always know where you keep them.

While cleaning your cleaning tools is a little OTT, what we learned from Monica is to leave no stone unturned. To be truly organized, you need to put in the effort and make it work.

An organized life is a smooth one, so making sure your cleaning and organization has a timetable, is the best way to get ahead of it all. You can use a Monica-approved planner like the Getting Things Done planner to schedule out your free time and give yourself more time to vacuum your vacuum cleaner (if you're that way inclined).
