This year we’re back on Zone Defense, tackling clutter and getting our homes more in order. This month, we set our sights on the living areas.

Keep the Laundry Room Clean! (Zone Defense)

Keeping laundry room clean

THIS makes me happy. It gives me the feeling that at least somewhere in my house is peace and order. Forget the fact that my office is buried in piles. I can just go to the laundry room and gaze on clean surfaces. Since I came up with my new laundry system, the laundry area […]

Time to Get on Zone Defense! (Again)

Time to get back on Zone Defense, battling clutter and reorganizing your home for the way you live.

Zone Defense: Deep Storage

I hope you haven’t forgotten Zone Defense! This year, we’re going through our homes, zone-by-zone, tackling different areas of home life. This final play is to tackle the deep storage.
