Still clean :)

Two weeks ago Mikayla and I spent 7 HOURS cleaning, scrubbing, de-cluttering and tidying… and the house looked awesome!

Usually after two weeks we’d be right back to square one again… but not this time!  We decided that after all the effort we’d put in we had to do something different so we introduced a FINE system! 

Basically how it works is that if ANYONE leaves ANYTHING in the ‘communal living areas’ (kitchen, lounge, bathroom etc) overnight then they have to pay a $3 fine.  We thought it would work… we hoped it would work… and after two weeks we can report that IT WORKS!!!

The lounge still looks like this:IMG_0577

It’s been so nice to come home to a clean and tidy house every day!  And as for the ‘fine’ system… so far there’s $6 in the jar and both lots are from Krystal LOL

p.s. Krystal thinks it’s all a bit ‘over the top’ but it’s definitely made a HUGE difference :)
