  1. 1) My office desk. It was tidy about a week ago, but now it is starting become chaotic again.

    2) Actually going through all the mess and dealing with it, then removing it. Usually all the mess is various stuff I put in piles or notes and such that I plan on getting to, but never do.

    3) Clorox wipes are the easiest solve for most quick clean and sanitize. I also like the Magic Erasers. They really are voodoo cleaning magic.

    5) Nothing really in our current home is organized due to the constant disarraying activities of our kids. So, it’s our Buena Vista home.

  2. 1. Without a moment of hesitation, my desk is the most cluttered. I hate clutter but have always permitted my workspace to be messy. Only I need to know what is there and why. The clutter helps me remember where I left off on unfinished tasks .

    2. By avoiding clutter in the first place. I’m a big adherent to the “touch it once” school of thought–if you can just get it done now, then do it now.

    3. Tony is right, Magic Erase sponges were a real game changer. So I’ll go with Blue Coral automotive carpet and upholstery cleaner. You have to get it at an automotive store, but it’s a secret weapon for removing rug and furniture stains on pretty much any type of surface. Living with a vomiting pet has taught me a few tricks.

    4. Shame.

    5. The booze table.

  3. 1) I have a table that is my study spot and it is cluttered af!

    3) A cleaning lady. Seriously there’s this o I cleaner with peroxide. It’s pretty bad ass.

    4) The wife yelling at me? Or company coming over.
