In my defence...I'm not the messy one (hahahahaha). But seriously, I have things that I do to control the clutter and mess that, believe it or not, will actually work - If you use them!
- Do it right away! If you've finished with the bowl, go ahead and rinse it out and put it in the dishwasher rather than just tossing it in the sink. It only takes 2 seconds longer and keeps the sink clean. Plus it's easier to do it in 2 seconds now than waste way more time later doing several dishes. This works for everything. Go ahead and put it where it belongs....now.
- When you leave an area, take something with you! If you are walking to the kitchen to grab a drink of water, go ahead and hit the trash can or the dish washer on the way. Again, a few minutes now is better than spending much longer later.
Even more than not wanting to be embarrassed, I want my house to be safe for my Baby Girl. Leaving things around that she can get into is very dangerous and I'd rather not have to constantly be hovering over her worrying that she is going to get too close to this, or get into that, or pick up...whatever that is over there!
So the questions for the day are: What do you do to keep your house clutter under control...and how did/do you get the rest of your household on board with it?
