A basket case!

 My girls are always littering the lounge and kitchen with their belongings. So I put an empty Christmas hamper basket on the stairs and throw the bits in as I find them. At the end of the day, I take the basket upstairs and they are responsible for taking out their stuff or the bin gets it! Works for me!

    Ahh this is much prettier than just setting stuff on the stairs, our stairs looks like a closet!
