My cat tracks litter all over the house and my husband is Over It. Please help me keep both men in my life happy!

I prefer to use pine litter, but we are finding little bits of sawdusty piney bits all over the house, and my husband can't stand it any more. Mr Cat
has a high-sided covered box and a mat that's supposed to catch all the bits off his feet before he leaves the area (but the trail of bits up the stairs shows that I fell for some marketing on this product). The last time I tried a traditional clay litter, it smelled like we were trying to hide a litter box by perfuming it (this is a major reason I prefer the pine - no smell!) and he tracked it around as well, so I don't want to just randomly try bags off the shelf. I'm also open to other products that will prevent the tracking like different styles of box, mats that work, little pixies that zap his feet, whatever.
MeFites: Give me your odorless, trackless litter solutions! (I have read the previous questions
, but they are a few years old and tracking is mentioned as a problem for everything that's recommended to solve the problems those posters asked. I'm hoping a tracking focused question might get me some better answers.)
