Similar to tidying except the focus is purely on the outward appearance of the area in question, generally to satisfy the irrational requirements of parent or spouse. Excessive filling of cupboards, cramming of stationary into sock draws and placing discarded clothing under mattresses is permitted and even encouraged. Combination of lie and tidying. Often preceded by nagging.
"Mother was giving me quite an ear-full over the state of my room, so I gave it a quick lidying to keep the old girl happy."
