I once had a coworker named Jen who was the most organized person I ever met. The entryway of her apartment featured a table covered in strips of tape outlining everyday objects: keys, phone, wallet, umbrella. When Jen caught me staring, she laughed and explained, "It helps me remember to take what I need every day, and where to put the stuff when I come back home."
A little bit OCD but also...so smart.
I'm not prepared to have a tape-covered table in my house, but I'm all in favor of tricks and products that make daily life more manageable. Like this stylish storage basket to control the clutter, or these mop slippers that keep floors clean. And, I can't wait to put this magnetic recipe holder to use. Read on for more solutions that can make a big difference.
