- Put the dishes in the dishwasher. Don't worry about neatness, just throw 'em in. Or, stack the mountains of dishes neatly in the sink. You know, a neat mess is impressive.

- Throw the dirty laundry in that room with the closed door.
- Spray something that smells good. Out of air freshener? No worries, dog perfume works just as well.
