Secrets of Success

Never Leave Empty Handed!




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!
