Oh wait....I think the assignment is actually to tackle and get rid of those piles. Well that's a different story.
I'm always fighting piles. I don't have any big "I'll deal with that later" piles. (Well, maybe I have one.)
No...most of my piles are results of me being lazy and just not taking the time to put things away. I'm always getting on my girls for not putting their things away when they are done, but it doesn't take a genius to figure out where they get their tendencies.
This is an area I'd really like to see some improvement in, so I'm going to do my best to prevent piles from forming in the first place! My two biggest hot spots are the kitchen counter and the laundry room.
I just need to be diligent and deal with these two areas daily!
