Cleaning Tip: Putting Things Back Where They Belong

052709cleantip-01.jpgLately, we've had a few visitors stop by our home and the comment we keep hearing over and over is "your house is so clean." We're always flattered by the observation because we don't clean 24/7...

Our maintenance plan is to always put things back where they belong. After we're done working in an area, dishes go directly to the sink and papers get stashed in their appropriate spot on the desk. In addition, we try to be constantly aware of taking belongings back to their homes (and it helps to have an outbox area for each room). Our outbox area is less of an actual box and more of a location to look at when we leave each room so we're continually keeping the house tidy.
