Bras, underwear, and socks must all be bright colors. This is to make it easier to find them in the pile of black clothes draped over the back of a chair.
Junk mail may pass over the threshold, and go no further. There is a trash can next to the front door. I don't care if it's tacky, so is junk mail on every flat surface of this house.
No switching purses. That's how lipstick and inhalers disappear (4 months AWOL). Nobody gives a shit what your purse looks like.
No dishes in the sink overnight.
Packages must be opened in the garage, next to the trash can. Packaging materials do not come back into the house.
Every room has a dedicated pair of scissors and a dedicated box of tissues.
Nothing may stay on a surface longer than the time it is actively being used. Lamps, boxes of tissues, flower arrangements, and scissors are exempt.
