Living Room Accountability

I had an idea to help ALL of us (I'm as bad as the rest), make sure we put things away as soon as we're done with them. For now, we're starting with the Living Room. I have my phone/computer calendar set to "remind" me once a day, at different times depending on the day of the week, to take a picture of the family room. When the reminder goes off, I take the picture THEN (or as soon as we get home if we're away from home when it goes off), our goal is to have 30 days of clean room pictures. If we meet that goal, we all get a treat (not sure what, I'll decide that if/when it happens LOL). My HOPE is that, if we can do this for a full month it will have become a habit, then we'll move on to another room and eventually perhaps our house will stay neater w/o so much "work". So . . . I'm going to try to keep adding pictures to this post as the month continues, we'll see how it works. Below is our Day 1 picture (today is actually day 3), I'll try adding yesterday's and today's now.

We're trying something new.
