The "Maid's Box"

I posted this note on a basket in my kitchen with several items that had been left under my feet and fingers for days-laid inside it.

"This is the maid's box. Since we do not have the means to hire a maid I will not, but there will me a maid coming through the house on a daily basis. If you would like to use her services, that is fine. But she is not free, she does not accept debit or credit cards, cash or extensions. If she picks up some of your stuff, she will place it in this box. Then it will cost you to get it out. She will decide what can be done by you to reclaim it. "

I don't think I have picked up more than 5 items in the past 2 weeks.

Sometimes mom's have to be creative!

My boys asked if I had gotten this off the internet.....................I told them no.....But thought I would now post it! Tee hee hee.
