    When I first clicked on this article I was wondering what in the world you would do with the lights and slippers. It makes total sense! In fact we have a new puppy we are training in our RV and I have to constantly watch where I'm walking in the night to take her out without turning lights on to wake up my wife. Thanks for sharing!

    Step one on this page... 1 inch pieces of wife are prohibited material in my area. Is there a substitute?

    Great 'ible ;P
