Keep s small basket in the kitchen for immediate cleaning up. A basket is especially handy for throwing in items that can make a kitchen look disorganized. Imagine, having only minutes to spare until company comes. What to do? Just simply place all items (for sorting later) in the basket and place in an inconspicuous are in the kitchen. It would be better, if the basket has a matching cover as the illusion of organization would surely be complete. This idea can be replicated in other areas of the home.
