There are problem areas in every house.

Areas where you constantly drop items instead of putting them away. Areas where you and your family are coming in and out of frequently. Areas that collect items quickly and haphazardly.


I like to refer to these areas as active areas and drop zones. 


Active areas and drop zones can be the hardest to declutter because the clutter just keeps building up.

In this episode of The Simple Home Podcast we’re going to tackle these difficult areas so you can create systems that take away the frustration of active areas and drop zones.
