Take a large paper grocery bag and stuff all of the papers, pens, mail - everything off your desk top - into it and stash it in a drawer or closet.

Follow-up tip: remember where you put it. I have four bags full right now and need to take a peek inside! I hope I remembered to pay that electric bill.....

Which makes more sense to me, as my plates won't fit in either of my crock pots. My stock pot on the other hand....

The Sailor's fave tip for faking a clean house, remove all the accumulated junk from the bookcases(there are a LOT of bookcases in my house) and dump it ALL in the bedroom, for Mamma(aka Me) to put up later.

To hide that "Why Yes I Have Too Many Cats, Why Do You Ask?" smell.

I am in SO much trouble because that is the only cleaning that happens at my house!

Anyone with children is familiar with the carpet mulch scenario- all the stuff the kid(s) drop on the floor is just to make the carpet grow!

And dining room tables are for piling of stuff (my friend calls it the "staging area" in an effort to be kind). Living room sofas are for eating of meals.
