Never Leave Empty Handed!

This Sparked Me!

Growing up my mother had a rule that when you leave a room, you never leave empty handed..

Did you take a glass into the living room? Take it to the kitchen! Is your jacket on the couch? Take it to the closet!

This way you don't have to do heavy cleaning all at once and everyone can chip in!

    I wish I could get my child to do this! I ask her to clean up like that and she complains, maybe a proper reward/point system will work?

    Got the kids doing it, now if only the hubby would remember!

    I like this. I just might start this here. Thanks for the idea. Have a great Mothers Day.

    I've always done this... it really does help and keeps things fairly organized. Great tip to post!
