Three Ways to Keep Your Home Organized

by Tina ~ September 15th, 2010.

kid's roomMake staying organized a team effort. Each evening, you and the kids do the “five minute fury.” Return sports equipment, toys, dishes, etc., to their proper place before you read them a story.

Each season, everyone takes a day or two to cull unused shoes, jackets, hats, mitts, etc. Schedule these days in your calendar and stick to it!

If you want kids to help, adapt rooms to their size and ability. For example, place hooks inside closets at their level. Make organizing fun with colour coded containers or by making it a “see how fast you can do it” game. Rewards help too!
