Nudge: Clean Up

· · · · · · · · | Design for Change

When I woke up on Saturday I walked into the living room to find my boyfriend sprawled out playing video games. Though this is not a very common occurrence in our home. There was a part of the scene that irked me with it familiarity.


Our coffee table looked like this:

Long story short: it was a mess. And often is.


It kills me every time. I will be gone from the house for hours and return to a fairly clean surrounding where the center-piece is a terribly filthy ikea coffee table covered in junk and cigarette ash. why me????


So I took action.


Before leaving the house I strategically placed a trash can near his couch-spot:

I then tidied the coffee table and draped it in the nicest piece of fabric I had on hand the could a approximate a decent tablecloth.

And then I left the house. With my darling still inside. Though in a slightly changed postion.

Later that day I returned to find the table in decent condition.

And was pleased but still skeptical.


Yet even hours later the results stuck.
