This rule helps you narrow down and sort out exactly what should stay in view or keep for the long run! It also lessens visual clutter when it comes to things that just collect dust in certain spots. Eventually, you'll be able to slim down the overflowing amount of items you own.

For example, if your counters are crowded with groceries and appliances, practice the rule by taking out everything that you don't use daily. Some things you may want to leave in sight are your coffee machine, microwave oven and breakfast items. Same goes for your bedroom—clean out your nightstand by only keeping a lamp, your book, your phone and your lotion or a balm that helps you sleep.

The best part? You can take the golden rule with you from room to room—cleaning off all sorts of surfaces until your whole home is looking tidy.
