Regardless of your lifestyle, it's not easy to keep the home neat and sparkling all the time. Even those who love to scrub every nook and cranny of a room know that real life can easily get in the way of chores. 

Whether you're drowning in work tasks or you're simply not in the mood to pick up after yourself, it can be a challenge to tidy up. Instead of running around the house to put everything back to where it belongs, have you ever thought about rearranging your belongings to fit your routine?

According to a story from Apartment Therapy, homekeepers should "Stop trying to change your habit and just change your habitat" to achieve an impeccably clean space. 

Things have a place that they gravitate to—they just do. Usually, it's where they get used and not always where it is intended to be. For example, if you constantly keep finding yourself changing your shoes in the foyer instead of your walk-in closet, you should consider moving your footwear storage near your front door.
