cans strategically placed throughout my house.... so how come I'm the only one who ever puts anything into them???

IDN what happened, but I started to type this and it disappeared.

But anyway, I don't have an answer, but I can definitely relate. It's as if no one can "see" the trash cans, or maybe they think their art?

All my stuff in my house gets laid down wherever and never gets put away, they walk all over things, including trash.

My house would be on the show ""hoarders" if it wasn't for the magic trash fairy that comes to pick it up.

I thought I taught them better. Maybe in time it will change.

At my house, it's hampers. Hampers surrounded by piles of dirty laundry that died horrible deaths before reaching sanctuary.

letitout -

I have a suggestion - replace the "Magic Trash Fairy" with the "evil trash gremlin".

Instead of trash just magically disappearing altogether, it should magically transport itself to the bed of the culprit who left it behind.

Along with that, I suggest giving in to the route my mom took with my brother when he was in high school - she got tired of nagging him about cleaning his room, so she just started closing the door instead. In fact, I think she told him that she would leave him alone as long as the door stayed shut and he didn't leave dishes/food in there that might attract critters and creepy crawlies.

No. DS' rental fell through, and he's back with me for the time being.

"evil trash gremlin"
. I like that idea of putting their things on their bed. I'm going to start tonight!
