Our night stands are a mess. We are living in a rented house overseas and I am more lax than I will be when we move back to our house in the US that we recently renovated. I started with encouraging neatness there with a hamper and valet for my husband's clothes so he wouldn't throw them on the floor. He also makes a mess on a certain part of the kitchen counter that he hits when he comes in the door here in South Africa where we have household help we won't have in the US. I'm trying to figure out how to avoid that mess back in the US. He loves our new renovation so I'll have to encourage a cooperative spirit on keeping it looking nice. Wish me luck.

Thank for the DMA link. We suspect an elder loved one is starting dementia and has suddenly gotten a lot of catalogs and magazines that are not her style. telemarketers have scammed her too. this link offers an option for caretakers to help manage these problems.
