Tidy House Rules

One of my words for 2009 is orderliness. My little family needs lots of work in this area! Yesterday I made a poster for the refrigerator with our Tidy House Rules. It said:

1. A place for everything and everything in its place.

2. Don't put it down, put it away.

3. Leave every room better than you found it.

Cliches? Maybe. But cliches often come into being because they are true!

Yes, I am a firm believer in orderliness. Leave a room better than you found it is a cliche to live by!!! Now if only I could teach hubby and lil man to follow it too. haha

I need to put things away instead of down. Between my husband and me, I'm the one who causes all the clutter! (I don't even compare to my two-year-old son, though.)
