Feeling a Little over whelmed -

Does your house look like you are losing a game of Jumanji?

You want a nice, clean, and lovely smelling house.  Then the kids walk through it, and within a matter of seconds, the couch cushions are everywhere.  The toys have been thrown into every nook and cranny, and the baby is about to eat a crayon?! There goes that dream idea.

Hi it’s me Sarah-

Well, I have some organization tips to help with your busy life.

  • Bins, bins, bins, bins, bins!!!!!!  You can put anything into them. Clothes, toys, shoes, miscellaneous things that you don’t even remember buying.

    • Buy a large circle bin, and put all your kids' toys in there.  The kids do not know what organization is no matter how many times we wished they did.

  • Silence is not always golden

    • If it has gone oddly quiet.  It’s probably because your child is messing up the room that you just cleaned.  To avoid this, you can put up a child safety gate in front of their open door. This way, you know where they are at, and what they have access to.  It doesn’t stop them from getting into everything, but it does bring some comfort to your mind.

  • Have your kid(s) help with cleaning.  Tape a circle or a square on the ground, and have them see how much of their toys they can put in it.  This way you don’t have to go searching around everywhere.

  • Get rid of toys that have been broken in some way, or may have missing pieces and that your child hasn’t touched in a while.  This will make the amount of clutter less.

  • Do a little bit of cleaning each day.  Don’t stress yourself out, and try to get everything cleaned in one day.

We all know that there is a never-ending list of things to get done. For Example:

    • Monday - Fold all the clothes

    • Tuesday - Put away everyone’s shoes

    • Wednesday - Clean the fridge

    • Thursday - Go through your closet, and get rid of the clothes that don’t fit anymore.
