One of the things to which this refers is clearing away clutter.
One of the best ways I have found to do this is to give everything that comes into my house a HOME. And I can easily tell that I have too many things when there are not enough homes for them all!
I gleaned the idea of items having homes from my younger sister who used to say to her toddlers, "See that book on the floor there? Is that its home? No? Please put the book into its home." Often, I am saying the same words to myself that she said to her little ones.

So: Tell us your favorite homes for five things, the places that you can always and reliably find them.
Tell us about them; show us pictures if you want! And definitely post a link in the comments, using the following formulation, so we can all come and see.

ps: the prevailing wisdom that one should never have a "junk drawer"? I don't buy that. Because, where else do you put your birthday candles, tiny measuring tape, kite string, eyeglasses repair kits, etc.?
