6yo won't clean up after herself


Our 6yo treats our house like her personal bedroom and laundry hamper. She is generally cooperative when I simply tell her to hang up her clothes and put her stuff away, but I'm tired of having to tell her every time. She's old enough to take responsibility for her own belongings and it sets a bad example for her younger siblings. Now I'm fining her 5-10 cents for every item she leaves in the wrong place (and she still has to pick it up right away), but this requires a certain amount of micromanaging on my part. Other than just confiscating her stuff as I find it, is there an easier or better solution?
