Never leave a room empty-handed

It’s one of Marilu’s favorite tips, and it’s something she learned from her mother (who had a husband, six kids, and two home-based businesses).

If, every time you leave a room, you do a quick scan and pick up one thing that belongs where you’re going, picking up the house becomes less of a problem. If everyone in your house does it, just think of how much easier it will be to clean the house, and how much more free time you’ll all have.

We’ve seen a spin-off of this with piles of stuff to go up or down the stairs. Don’t leave the pile, though! Take it up (or down) on the next trip. (Yes, we’ve seen those stair baskets – the last thing anyone needs is permanent clutter on the stairs. Skip the basket!)
