    We left ours on top of the TV cabinet. It was propped up by the tissue box. It was taken every day. I had written "For Mousekeeping Thank You" so it was not mistaken for something else.

    Thanks, I think I'll try the pillow. Last time we had a couple that were not picked up from the TV cabinet. We have written thank you mousekeeping on them as well :)

    in the past I had seen some really cute links to graphics you can print and place on the envelopes for "mousekeeping" I printed a few up prior to my trip in July and we left one out each day. :) It was great because I filled them at home prior to my trip and then I didn't have to go fishing around for the money once I got there. If anyone has the link the the envelopes, please put it up! :)

    I print "Thank You Mousekeeping" (in Disney font) on the envelopes and stuff before we leave home. That way I can put them in the safe, grab one out each morning and usually place it on a pillow, or anywhere it will be visible.

    When DD was younger, she liked to color and decorate each envelope before we left. It was her little contribution towards getting ready for the trip, and it made her feel good to do something nice for the Mousekeepers.

    I leave it on the sink and I print them up beforehand so it's clearly marked that it's for mousekeeping. I think themouseforless was the site I found my graphic from. I tweaked it a little though.

    We left it on a pillow at the foot of the bed. It was taken everyday.

    I decorated and filled Mousekeeping envelopes before our trip so it was very easy to just pull out a new envelope from my suitcase every morning before we left for the parks. I wrote "Thank You Mousekeeping!" kind of fancily and taped the Home Depot Mickey Head Paint Samples on the front. I made it as obvious as I could.

    We did also. The first day I left it on top of the TV cabinet, and it was still there when we got back :).. It was actually 'tidied' up so they didnt miss it, just didnt know it was for them

    We just stayed at POR. The mousekeeping there made really nice animals and designs with towels every day. Right before we left , I made an open space on the bed and with the towels I mad two eyes and a smile and left the tip rolled up as the nose.:goodvibes I thought it was really nice for them to do for us, so I did it for them.

    if they cant find it, they probably didnt do a very good job cleaning the room and dont deserve it.

    I decorate mine as well - write Thank you in 4 different languages and put "For Mousekeeping". I just wish my decoration skills were better ! :laundy:

    To a point that is true, and if it's in an envelope also, BUT, if they happen to just straighten up, and not really LOOK at the envelope, then they may miss it, or if it's not clearly marked as 'theirs' if they WOULD take it and werent supposed to..... Boy oh boy.. now they are guilty of theft.. Not a good thing

    A lot will say $1 or 2 per person per day, I usually do $5 for my wife and I, just because..
