Under the sink

If the clutter never accumulates, then the spiders can't hide there.
Garages and sheds
Spiders really love these places. Not only are they usually cluttered with all of the stuff that you are storing, but the doors are often left open to the outside. This makes it simple for them to scurry in and out when they feel like it.
Gardens and shrubbery
