Disorganization isn’t always about excess. Often, it is about things being out of order. During the course of a day, chairs and stools get pulled out, making your space look disorderly and interfering with your ability to move about freely.
Pushing chairs in is a habit worth forming. Not only does it improve the flow in in our own homes, but it is also a way to show respect when visiting someone else’s.
In a busy space, the chairs may not be perfectly aligned at every moment. This is perfectly fine. Simply take a moment to tuck them back in at “closure intervals,” such as after a meal, before you leave the house, and/or before you go to bed. It may sound like a small thing, but once you start doing it, you will never go back.
Do you align your chairs on a regular basis?
