Well, I put fabric softner in my bucket of water when I'm cleaning my cieling fans. Helps the dirt not adhere to the blades , making cleaning them easier next time. And I was just told that putting dryer sheets in places you don't want mice works. They don't like the smell. Haven't tried it yet, but I'll let you know!

That is good to know, we have to dust our ceiling fans so often, I am going to try that.

 Serously, though, I try to buy bins for storage, dividers for my junk drawer, try to have a plce for everything... little things like that. I try (TRY!) to keep everything put away and get the kids to do the same, but there are 3 of them and 1 of me, life gets busy, things don't get cleaned up perfectly. It's overall pretty clean and organized around here- easily functional- but it will never look just how I want it to unless I kick DH and the kids out of the house. lol
