I honestly believe any one of these will work, but in combination, they’re incredibly powerful. At least in my case . . .
1) An enormous old house;
2) A “few” boxes that have been in various storage units since 2008;
3) Several inches of snow and plenty of steps to the front and back doors;
4) Hip replacement surgery.
If you doubt the potency of this combination, here’s a short testimonial. There are dishes (and a few other items that don’t belong there), on my kitchen counters. There are dishes in the sink, the dishwasher, in a partially emptied cardboard box in the foyer, and many more in the attic. A toolbox and electric drill rest on the rug next to the coffee table. A broom, a mop, a duster and a vacuum are “taking a break” in various rooms. The snowshovel’s filed a grievance with the union.
