Make sure everything in your house has a place.
Teach all family members to mind their own messes.
For example, if you take it out, put it back.
If you open it, close it.
If you throw it down, pick it up.
If you make a mess, clean it up and so on.
Tip of the Month:
Place a decorative basket on the coffee table in which to keep remote controls.
But you can also save in this basket everyday useful things. Such as your eyeglasses and a pen.
