What a Mess

I don't know what it is about our couch but at least once a month I have to pull it out for cleaning.  It is amazing how much stuff gets found at that time.  I grab a broom and sweep everything to one big pile.  The kids are told to pick their stuff up or it will go in the trash.  They have learned that I mean what I say but they are so slow about the picking up.  It is as though they are in a competition to see if they can pick up the least.

I occasionally sit on the couch to watch TV, otherwise I would wonder why we needed one.  What are your hot spots for messes?  This is just one of ours.


  1. I know I don't understand how that happens it's like they are just there to collect random things... We also have to add about about two pounds or so of dog hair or s under there too.

  2. I think there must be a monster that lives in our couch and it sends out tentacles to retrieve things left on the floor. Because, seriously...where does all that junk come from!!

  3. I don't have as much of a problem under my couch (except dust bunnies and the like) but any flat surface in my house collects junk quicker than I can clean it off. Every table, counter, shelf, etc. Drives me nuts!

    1. Hahaha, I have that problem too. I fear that I may scare folks off if I show a picture of my desk!

  4. I need a second kitchen table so we can actually eat a ,meal without the extra effort of moving everything to the bench first.
