Starting with a clean home is the key to keeping it clean. Spring is the perfect time to throw open the windows, and start cleaning and de-cluttering. After that, keeping it clean just means spending an hour or two per week tidying up. I have two days off per week, one is spent having fun and/or lounging, the other is spent running errands and cleaning. It makes life much easier, and it allows me to be able to come home from work to a clean home where I can relax and enjoy myself.

We mostly use plastic tupperware for leftovers that go into the fridge, but I'm adamant about anything in the pantry going in glass. We don't have open shelving, but I had a mice infestation in a shared house a few years ago and they would chew right through plastic containers. It was horrifying. We bought large canning jars last summer when we were pickling, and I also use some of those for pantry storage. Mostly, though, we use recycled jars for everything. They work great in the craft room too!

I am slightly baffled that people need a reminder to be conscientious and courteous to people in the service industry (especially the people one sees on a daily basis). But, then again, I work in the service industry and have first-hand experience with how inconsiderate (and downright rude) people can be.
