Work in progress, as they say
Going away this weekend so not much will be done in the house.
Plenty of time for that next week/weekend.

@Darcy Giggle yes dishes seem to be non existent to MsS at moment .. although she couldn’t resist an Alan key to put the new spare bed together today - a lovely big king single instead of a kids single bed ... this is the spare room bed that I often end up in when she snores lol ... so super happy ... I also cleaned out and de cluttered spare room a bit more so feeling pretty good about that ! Makes me want to sort and tidy even more :-)

Continued progress = 🙌
Alan key vs dish washing = no contest.
New bed = 👍
I posted off an op shop find to my mum today so that is off the table. Have two other items set aside that I am hoping to donate over the weekend.

Meh.... we tried that one. After repeatedly asking them to pick up their toys, and warning them of the consequences, I packed everything on the floor into boxes and put them away until they started keeping what was left tidy. Didn't work.
As adults they're not too bad at keeping things in order. Maybe because letting it get out of hand has the intrinsic "punishment" of not being able to do what you want to do (can't find things, lack of space etc.) and also the added thing of the landlord gets unhappy when they do a rental inspection.

@Smc I don't know it would have worked at our place either, but it did make me smile .. like your lot, we could happily live without things.
I think you have got it in one ... consequences occur on their own accord without external input.
Have noticed Mr Darcy has put things in spots that really do not suit just so they are out of sight.
Have just thought of a possible temporary solution to one of our challenges - where to put office supplies and some of the other things until they get a permanent home post renovation. In regards to the latter, we are ready to roll as the bedroom/office area quite straightforward, kitchen will take more time/thought but every builder we have rung has said 'hope you are not in a hurry ...'.
