Mistake 10: Not establishing ownership for maintenance tasks
After finishing your beautiful closet organizing project, take a moment to review the tasks involved in maintaining the space. Clothes need to be hung up daily, stacks of clothing need to be straightened and folded regularly, hangers need to be rotated back to the utility room once a week, and laundry needs to get done frequently. Who is going to do those tasks and when? Many a task has gone undone because both parties thought the other was going to do it. Communicate clearly about who owns what tasks to avoid confusion.
