Tidy Up With The 90/90 Rule

  • by

There are so many organizational methods to explore. Finding the right one can be tricky, but not impossible. Let’s talk about the 90/90 rule, a revolutionary method coined by Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus, aimed at streamlining organization and promoting a minimalist lifestyle. By asking two simple questions—have you used the item in the last 90 days? and will you use it in the next 90 days?—you can effectively tidy up around your home.

A Practical Approach to Decluttering

The beauty of the 90/90 rule lies in its simplicity. By applying this method to every item in your closet, you can quickly identify which items are truly essential and which ones are simply taking up space. If you haven’t used an item in the last 90 days and don’t foresee using it in the next 90 days, it may be time to bid it farewell.

Adjusting to Fit Your Needs

While the 90-day time frame serves as a good starting point, it’s important to tailor the rule to suit the specific needs of each space in your home. For example, when decluttering a pantry, you might opt for a shorter time frame, such as 30 days, given the perishable nature of food items. The key is to adapt the rule to align with the usage patterns and storage requirements of each area in your home.

Unlocking the Potential of Custom Storage Solutions

To truly maximize the benefits of the 90/90 rule and maintain a clutter-free environment, investing in custom storage solutions is essential. Whether it’s designing a custom closet system with adjustable shelves and hanging rods or creating tailored pantry storage with pull-out baskets and adjustable shelving, custom solutions offer unparalleled versatility in tidying up.
