AVON LAKE, Ohio -- An Ohio mother who was fed up with her family not picking up their things went to extremes to clean house, Cleveland television station WEWS reported.
Jessica Schickel created a box filled with all the items that were not put in their proper place and sold them on eBay.
The winning bidder got all the items and a videotape of the family's reaction when they found out their possessions were sold behind their backs.
Schickel said she just had a baby and was fed up with her other two children and her husband not picking up their belongings.
The box of prized possessions sold for over $300. But Schickel said her family still hasn't gotten the message.
"They didn't learn their lesson, so it's their own fault," said Schickel.
Schickel has started collecting items for a second box. All proceeds earned will be donated to charity.
