Time and Money Saver-Keep tools in the location where they are most frequently used.
For the Bedroom: I keep laundry spot remover close at hand in my clothes closet for when I need to pre-treat a spot on my clothes (which should be done as soon as possible). With the spot remover handy, when I dis-robe I am assured I won’t forget to do it at a later time.
Unless you shop for entertainment (see my article “Why Do You Want to Buy It?”) if the stain gets really set in due to lack of pre-treating, you’ll be spending big bucks to replace the “spot laden” piece of clothing.

Time Saver-Keep tools in the location where they are most frequently used.
Kitchen Example: I cook from scratch and I eat oatmeal every morning. I purchased a second, cheap set, of measuring cups and I keep the ½ cup-measuring cup (1 serving) right inside my cylinder of raw oatmeal. And because I live in a high humidity part of the country, I keep my brown sugar (what’s oatmeal without brown sugar?) not only in its plastic bag, but also in a plastic container with a lid that is just large enough to also hold a small measuring utensil inside. Wash and replace utensils as needed.
