When we leave in the morning, we put Baxter's things away and run the vacuum since golden retrievers are very talented when it comes to shedding. We then do a quick clean up in the bathroom so the only thing out is a soap dispenser.
BTW, do you love foaming hand soap? It's easy to make your own with dish detergent and water!
We also throw all of our laundry right into the washing machine. I thought I'd regret getting rid of our laundry basket, but I actually like this. When the machine is really full, we sort what's in there, grab our towels from the bathroom, and usually have one or two loads.
Remember when I said that home selling was hell? I really meant that preparing to put your house on the market is hell. Once you have a look established and a routine for your mornings to achieve that look, home selling is kind of nice. I love coming home to our clean, organized home.
This experience has always shown us that we can live without a lot of the things we sent to Marc's storage space. I think we'll be pretty picky about how much "stuff" we bring into our next home.
