Give everything a place
One of my favorite quotes from Maria Montessori, the well-known physician and educator behind the Montessori method, is, “A place for everything and everything in its place.”
We follow some Montessori principles as my children are growing and learning, but I am not strict, and play with what works best for them and our family. I also don’t apply this ONLY to my kids - I’d suggest that this is an ideal principle of minimalism as well.
How does this Montessori idea apply to the minimalist home?
🌟 Have a designated place for every item you own
🌟 Having that designated place makes it easy and efficient to put back what’s taken out
🌟 This philosophy helps with structure and organization
🌟 Children are naturally tidy and want to be helpful - this principle reinforces this
Any Montessori mamas out there who love this quote?
