Great tips! And if someone is coming over, just wipe off the kitchen counters and wipe down the toilet and sink in the bathroom. I swear, people will think you cleaned everything!


one thing i've learned and was just reminded of is rotating toys. we just emptied our current toy basket in the living room into a cheap, large rubbermaid type container, to store in the basement. we put the toys the babes got for xmas in the toy basket. we'll rotate these toys out every few months (and sort and donate some) so it's like they're able to enjoy their toys at different times depending on what's out of storage.

another thing in regards to organizing with bunchers (and babes/kids in general probably) is make sure everything has a "home". that way when you clean up at night or whenever you know where everything goes. you don't have to get all martha stewart and buy special equipment to do this instead be creative-use what you have. we've found that this is what's keeping us sane as we are currently going through the process of selling our house. we have house showings and in order for me to get my 3 yr old, 2 yr old and 9 month old out of the house in time as well as get the house in order i MUST have somewhere specific to put everything. obviously so we can show the house but also so we can function normally day to day without losing our minds or spending cash on things we already own but have no idea where are.


Ha, my house is completely gone! I did do the bins idea though and have them in every room to shove toys in when I want to clean up. Before my second came along, I used to spend every night after my kid was in bed reorganizing and putting the pieces back with the right toys. Now I just throw it wherever so I don't step on them in the middle of the night. Why do toys have so many pieces anyways?

Oh man, you are so on point with this. I was just saying to my husband, "Why is our apartment always so flithy! We clean up every night and by the following night, it is a Level 3 diaster zone. Toys on the floor, a trail of clothes everywhere, Cheerios in random places, vomit on my clothes - it's a mess!

Another tip I'd give it to buy toys that are one big piece. We bought my daughter a gazillion Legos and Tinkertoy sets and man do I regret it every day. Just buy teddy bears or something. Saves you time in the end.



I love your have one room that is always clean and one room you can let be a disaster idea. Fabulous!

My living room I keep clean (and toy-free), which works out well because that's where unexpected visitors come in.

My messy room is my kids' bedroom. Plus, if someone drops by, I can throw all the messy stuff in there, then lock the dog in there, which gives me a reason to not let anyone in!


big bins (we use inexpensive baskets from Old Time Pottery) are KEY!!!
