A common bad habit that can result in clutter is leaving papers, mail and other recyclables spread out around the house, creating a mess that can sneak up on you.
To avoid this, keep recycling bins close to the area with the biggest clutter build up or try to form a new habit: head straight to your recycling bin when you enter the house carrying your mail. Get used to sorting, opening and managing it right there so you can toss out the extra paper and junk mail on the spot.
Another thing to consider is creating a set up that you will want to work with. Don't just get any bin or bucket, make sure it's the right size, style and look for your home and lifestyle. An organized and easily accessible system can make all the difference when it comes to keeping up with your households recyclables!
