Incentive or punishment?

This is the view that greets me when I walk down the hall to girls' bedrooms. Do you think that the girls will be embarassed enough that I have posted these pictures to keep their rooms clean on a more regular basis in the future? If nothing else, I suppose I could say it's punishment for not cleaning a few days ago when I asked them to.
Do you see that suitcase on the floor in the middle of all the mess? Yeah, Rebekah still has not completely unpacked from her Washington D.C. trip. She got back two weeks ago.


Julianne's room isn't quite so bad. She did a spur of the moment whirlwind clean about a week and a half ago when she had some friends coming over. But still....

Oh my kids would be dead if their room's looked like that. We have to have our rooms clean before they leave for school or else they don't have benefit's after school.

This happened to me one time. I walked in to see my dad taking pictures with his phone. I was terrified he was going to show his friends at work. I don't remember if this shook me enough to keep it clean, but I sure tried.

Wow, I thought my kids were the only ones that bad. Maybe we need to talk to Mindy and get some help.
