This sounds like my childhood too! With eight children my mom had a time keeping the house tidy, and she was adamant that NOTHING could be left in the living room. Or the kitchen. or the hallway. What happened in your bedroom was your problem till Saturday morning, when it had to be spick and span and CLEAN. She inspected everything and accepted no excuses. It was a bit like being in the army. Anyway good training for later on.

I love the article. My mom and sister are NOs freaks. My dad is a NNO and procrastinator. In my youth I was like my dad. I married a NNO like me. We had a kid, now in college, that is a NNO like his mom and dad.

I have found in middle age that suddenly the NNO lifestyle is creating chaos and stress for me. I have taken the approach of baby steps, small tasks accomplished in about 15 minutes, so that I don't get overwhelmed and suffer a meltdown. It is a constant struggle and nothing is ever totally put together, but it is clean with some sense of order.

On other motivational tool for me is I watch an episode of Hoarders-Buried Alive. I always get up after that show and clean at least one area.

Chicago Mosaics, I really love the leaves, they are sooooooo fun. Hide em in the bathroom? Is there a line at the bathroom door? I'd rather gather and share them on the porch. Just happen to live in Wisconsin so I can relate to the trees.

Another classic design style. Clawfoot tub? How about a vintage modern casting based on an 1880 French design? or taking Farmhouse all the way to Barn Retreat.
