Recently I purchased something small that has made a huge difference in our living room. Tim likes to leave his stuff all over the coffee table and it drives me crazy. So I went to Target and picked up a basket to hold all of his "important items"
This way all his stuff is easily accessible but it's out of my line of sight. I love the dark color of this basket as well I think it's so pretty.
Tim was excited to have his own basket too because now there is a place he can store all his stuff. I don't like to have a ton of stuff out on the table so when he leaves out papers or anything else I can just toss it in this basket and he knows where he can find it.
Simplicity is a million times better then clutter. Look how peaceful it is without clutter :)
