This Sparked Me!

When I go through the rooms picking things up I have a plastic basket (different color for each person) and I put the things that belong to my husband, daughter or me in the basket than everyone goes through what is in the basket daily.

    I did this with my kids and it worked. If I did it with me, well with the way my desk looks, I'd probably have a LOT of money by the time I was through emoticon

    Most of the organization people who recommend this tell you to put the things left around in the basket and make the family members "pay" to get them back. Paying could be doing an extra chore or can be money for the adults. If the adults put the money "earned" in a jar, you will accumulate fast money for a night out or maybe even a vacation (depending on how messy the adults are).
