When a surface is clear it's also a magnet for clutter, but that could just be me.

When my kitchen benches are clear, I'm more likely to bake, as there is space to work.
When my dining table is clear, my daughter wants to eat there rather than at the coffee table.
When my sewing worktable is clear, I'm more inspired to work on projects.
It's a really simple concept. But one I need to keep reminding myself of.
