9 Nooks You Need to Stay Neat

Two things are true - 1) if you make your bed in the morning, your bedroom will look 80% cleaner and 2) a drop-zone is IMPERATIVE for keeping yourself organized.

Call it a reading nook, call it a drop-zone, call it whatever you want. But if you're living without it, you're likely living with clutter. Having a place to throw your jacket, socks, and PJs when you don't have time to put them away (see: you don't feel like it) will instantly keep the things you need to organize well, organized. 

Not only will it help keep things off the bed and floor, it will always keep you honest on how much you need to put away. Once you can't SEE the chair anymore, it's time to take ten minutes to fold, hang, and hamper whatever is in your nook. Trust me, it works.

See below for 9 adorable nooks you need to stay neat!
