Even though I'm not at the point in The House That Cleans Itself that I'm supposed to be cleaning and organizing yet (because I'm not done learning about the system), I have been tiding up, little by little.
Here's a shot of my living room before:
And my living room after:
I removed a lot of clutter from the mantlepiece and the old televisions, and I moved one box of toys into my son's room. (A benefit to this is the toys will be less played with, so I'll be able to rotate toys now.) I realize some people would still find this too cluttered, but given that I have two small children who use this room to play almost exclusively in, I'm pleased.
