Sometimes it’s just too darn boring to put things away where they belong. Before you know it, you can’t find what you want when you want it.
The solution? Make putting away fun and easy. One way to do that is to introduce colour.
Children especially respond to this technique. Get the kids on board and the battle is half won.
Assigning different colours to everything from file folders to towels to lunchboxes makes life interesting and easier.
