Have absolutely every body take all of their stuff out and put it in their own pile! Then clean off anything and everything and sweep the walls and the floors as good as possible! Then one person at a time can put their stuff in and sort the stuff out that they don't need! Then at the end label every stand with the proper name! And throw away everything that can be, and have the rest of it tooken home or sold!

The tack room in the self-care barn (where I keep my stuff) is sooooo freaking gross. I don't even want to keep my stuff in there because it is so nasty. I feel like I'm going to catch something while I'm in there. The barn owner can't keep it clean like her other barn because the boarders simply don't care and put there **** everywhere. I can't stand it. I want to just dedicate a whole day probably more like two or three to just clean it out from top to bottom. But the people in that barn as just so bitchy and lazy that in a week it would be right back the way it was. No one cares about their stuff. I know that I have spent a lot of money on my horse care supplies and don't want it getting wasted or ruined because people were lazy and disrespectful of mine and their own things.

What the heck can I do?

best you can do is carve out your own personal area Jaded eyes. I would not keep my tack there, better to take it home in that situation. But for your other stuff I would get a really big sturdy plastic container and sweep clean the area around your box of stuff. Another option is to build a free standing tack box. You have to ask BO of course. My friend's hubby built one and it was really nice, there was room for multiple saddles, bridles, halters, etc. and all her grooming stuff.

Keeps your stuff away from everyone else's mess.

At one of the old barns I was at, the owner posted a note on the door saying that we had 3 days to clean our stuff up. Anything left out after 3 days would be confiscated and we'd have to pay a $1 fine per item to get it back.

I know if everything has a "home" its easy to keep it clean, I now use my old shed for my tack room and everything has a home, so its pretty easy to keep it clean, but I dont board either so I know its not going to be easy.
Misfit, thats a good ideal , charge everyone a dollar to get their stuff back, maybe that way they will learn to keep it put up where it belongs.
