Tips for Mousekeeping

Hi all!

I have a month to go, but I started prepping today, and I just printed out my mousekeeping envelopes. I thought I'd get an opinion about how much to tip. I like to tip daily, and there are 3 of us in the room - Me, DH and DS (3)
What do you recommend?

$1 per person per night seems to be the common tip. If you leave the room a little messier one day (woke up late, rushing to get out, whatever) you may want to throw in an extra buck or two. Have a great trip!

I think $3.00 daily would be sufficient. If you are particularly pleased with some "extras" that mousekeeping has left for you, ie, towel animals, extra soaps/shampoo than an extra dollar would be nice. I've also left a little note with the tip just letting the mousekeeper know how much I appreciated these extra touches. The money is nice, but sometimes people also like to hear that they are appreciated.

We tip $1 per person for the three of us. $3 per day. If we can tell the same person is there when we leave, we leave a little extra.

We did the $1 per person per day last year on our trip. It was just the two of us and other than not making the bed ourselves, we were pretty neat.

There will be five of us in two rooms next August, and with all 3 kids with us for that trip, I know we'll be tipping more. I clean up after my kids every day - I know what slobs they are.
