I have loved how my Car Bucket has helped me to keep my car clutter down and even non existent! I have been using mine since the original post, and I have to say it has helped me in huge ways to keep my out of the house stuff in order, as well as the in the house stuff out of the car when the trip is over.
Steedly entryway, I have stairs separating the living part of the house and the bedrooms. My laundry room is downstairs, which means there is alot of lugging up and down those stairs on a daily basis.
There is also a ton of clutter on the stairs ALL the time. This is my unimpressive attempt at reminding myself to lug things up or down the stairs "next time" I am going the direction the stuff belongs. Usually, I walk right over it because it is too many things to grab and I will just get it next time.
Since my CB worked so well, I have been working on instituting my "Stair Bucket" ..which is a cute basket that sits either at the top, or the bottom of the stairs that works the same way I use the CB. I put everything in there that needs to go up the stairs, or down them..the key to making it happen is that instead of it being set all over the stairs, it is ordered into one container that I can grab on my way up/downstairs
Also, like my CB, it has to be emptied when I get to where I am going, but it seems like that hasnt been too much of a problem because I am not letting it get to be a ton of stuff before taking care of it.
I have to admit that since starting school a three weeks ago, clutter has become a HUGE issue around here! I dont have as many productive moments to declutter, so any time I can cut the clutter down on my way to do other things is a huge bonus!
So, what do you think? Are their other areas of your house that you can use a "bucket"?
Do you have stairs, and use a different method of keeping them clear of clutter?
I would love to hear if this idea works for you..it does work for me!
