Do you spend a lot of time looking for things?

Let me help you out.  The main reason you can't find what you need when you need it is because you
a. don't have a place for it (a "home") in the first place, or you
b. didn't put it in the right place
This can be very confusing and frustrating, as you well know.

In order to stop having this problem, you have to first make a plan, and second, follow the plan that you made.

1. Draw a schematic, indicating what types of things belong in what areas.
2. Use your schematic when placing things where they belong.
3. Use your schematic when looking for things.

Lose the "just for now" mentality.  If you hear yourself saying, "I'll put it here just for now..." you are heading for disaster.

Take the time to put things in the right place.  That extra 35 seconds now could save you hours later.

Have a terrific day!
