Is this your home?
The house gets smaller and smaller, so how much time do you have to clean up?
The house is full of messy things, and it's messed up soon after cleaning up?
How many clothes can't be put in the specially made cloakroom? Every season is a tough battle?
Too many small items to start? The cleanliness of the child's room can only be kept for 5 minutes?
The cabinet is full of things that are not used for a long time, and can't find it when you need it?
Each of the above life troubles we have experienced.
"The Chinese lifestyle has a complete concept of ‘storage’, ranging from a organizer of tens of thousands of yuan to a storage box of 2, 3 yuan.”
In the movie "The Life of the Disgusted Pine Nut", the scene depicting her loss of control in her final life is a room like a garbage dump.
This also has a corresponding scenario in reality. With piles of takeaways and scattered clothes, many people feel a sense of physical aversion to the scene described above. This sense of disgust contains the fear of chaos, and it is also a preference for order instinct.
In Zhihu, there are 31.69 million readings on the roundtable topic of "Acceptance". In Xiaohongshu, there are as many as tens of thousands of notes with "acceptance" as the key word.
But organizing and storing is a matter of high cost both physically and economically.
At the beginning of this year, the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security announced a number of newly-added occupational jobs, and the organizers were among them. Although it is still a niche profession, the receptionist earns a lot. According to the survey, more than 40% of practitioners have an annual income of more than 100,000.
Among them, the average monthly salary of receptionists in second-tier cities can reach 10,000 to 10,000, and the monthly income of first-tier cities can reach 100,000 to 200,000. Why can this seemingly "zero threshold" job be so profitable?
Organizers actually belong to the housekeeping service industry. Unlike traditional housekeeping services, which mainly focus on cleaning, the organizer needs to sort out the household items in a comprehensive way, and prepare an appropriate location for each item according to the existing space. Improve the efficiency of family operations in daily life.
In other words, the work of the organizer is mainly to solve the current storage problem and the storage needs in the next 3-5 years, and deal with the coordinated relationship between people, objects and space.
Many people say that the house is rented, but life is their own. Young people are busy with work, especially when they can make money, huge consumerism traps will always fill every corner of life.
The difference between contemporary young people and their parents is also reflected in the way they deal with daily objects. In daily life, the convenience of shopping makes us pile up more and more clutter in our room. Once we start stacking randomly in a certain corner, it is often impossible to store and organize it.
Houses can’t be changed, things are getting more and more, the family is living with the elderly, busy work and there is no time to clean up... The rooms naturally get smaller and smaller over the years. The old ones weren't used up, and new ones were bought again, making the originally small room worse.
In a life where house prices and rents are getting more and more expensive, for every 1 square meter of land occupied by sundries, not only 10,000 living space is lost, but also my own good mood.
Three principles must be remembered before storage
(1) Finish all at once
Regardless of the size of the home, sorting and storage need to be done at once. If you plan to clean up slowly, the house will continue to be messed up during the cleaning process, and the cleaning effect will be wasted.
(2) Start sorting from large objects
Start by organizing large objects, such as bedding, thick clothes, and electrical appliances, and put them away or discard them, and you can quickly see the effectiveness of storage and get inspired. If you are entangled in the minutiae at the beginning, you are likely to feel tired and then give up tidying up.
(3) Don't buy storage boxes blindly
Just stacking items in the storage box does not allow people to see it, and it does not achieve the purpose of sorting, and it will be more troublesome to search when needed. It is recommended to reasonably add separate storage supplies according to the different use occasions. Place items in categories, and use sticky notes as a reminder when necessary.
