In The House That Cleans Itself, Step 5, you are supposed to take pictures and write notes about the natural flow of clutter and mess in your house. You are also supposed to post a sign that says excuse the mess, so I did! I let my house get messy for a few days, didn’t really pick up much, then I played “detective”. Wow what piggy’s we can be! The garage is by far the worst. It is the throw all and we haven’t quite gotten all the Christmas stuff put away yet. Here are a few pictures. This next week I am supposed to evaluate all that I noticed. Make notes about it and figure out what things need to be taken care of. Here are some pictures of my mess, SOO embarrassing for me to show the world these pictures BUT I will be happy to show the ending results. Trust me I am not showing you the worst of it. This Step was hard because I had to let things pile up more then usual and I am STILL trying to get things put back especially the laundry. I did notice that the worst places are my drawers and closets, yikes! One thing that drives me crazy is kids projects/papers/notes what do you do with them?! I hate thowing them away but I don’t know what to do with them? I have had no good solutions yet, do you have any?
