our house has been super solidly clean for weeks now!
"neat" was our new year rez.
there is a magic word that helps me keep it this way and that word is MOOP!
Matter Out Of Place used at burning man on the playa to remind yourself to pick up trash.
when i say moop, i remind myself that the scarf does not go in the kitchen and the dishes do not go in the bedroom, and quickly return them to their proper places.
feel free to use it as your mantra:)
