  2. I wish I could say that I have as organised approach as you do. What you say makes perfect sense and I think a lot of it is just ensuring you stay disciplined and follow the rules/guidelines during the year to keep the home looking good. Having a system and a set of rules to follow certainly seems like the best way to go. Thanks for sharing your system here.

  4. If only my 15 year old would follow these instructions and tips. She seems to feel that she lives in a hotel where we give fresh new towels after one shower. Our breakfast bar sometimes doubles as a desk, storage locker and junk drawer and is Typically where everything winds up. I am a very organized person so anything out of order drives me crazy. I am going to give this a try and I’ll let you know how it goes.
