I second the baskets/bins for toys. I have to pick up a little during nap and bed time b/c i can't relax in the living room when the floor is covered w/ toys. I have 2 bins. one for toddler toys, one for baby toys and i just toss everything in. takes 2 mins tops. :)
Also, i tend to straighten up a bit as i'm playing on the floor (b/c playing trucks gets reaaaallly old) at least then i feel slightly productive.


I'll third the bins! BINS BINS BINS! And naptime and bedtime are the only times I pick up, too. Otherwise, screw it!

Now I'm starting to try to get the kids to help pick up (ages 24m and 31m) and though it's usually more hassle than it's worth, they have to learn. One day it'll be worth it....riiiight? RIGHT?


I love this site's home organization plan:


At first I thought it was a little crazy to follow someone else's plan to clean my house, but I've found that it reminds me to do things I would probably let slide for MUCH longer than I should. I also used to feel better if I got EVERYTHING cleaned and done at once, but taking it day-by-day has helped me just appreciate what IS clean, even if its never everything at the same time!

I'm pretty type-A and love lists to keep me on top of things, so I've found it pretty helpful.


I have always used www.flylady.net and I know other Bunchers do too. It lets you in slowly, helps get the kids involved in tidying & just gets you used to doing things in a routine way so they just kind of happen. Our kids are now 5 and nearly 4 and they have learned to unstack & stack the dishwasher, load and unload the washing machine, tidy away their toys in the proper places, set the table and strip their beds - they still need lots of encouragement, and don't always do it 'right', but it all helps!


I try to keep things picked up during the day, but with a 15 month old and 3 month old it can be exhausting. I "kick" the hubby and kiddos out of the house for one weekend morning so that at least gives me time time to do some deep cleaning...or take a hot bath...having the quiet, uninterrupted time is actually relaxing, even if I am cleaning.


Thanks so much for the ideas! I'm Sara, who asked and I've been trying to let things slide, but some days it's just too much. I don't think it helps that I'm working part time too...

I think I'm going to have to try Amanda's tip of "kicking" out the hubby and kiddos. I've heard other people rave about flylady.net too, so I'll check it out!

Thanks again :)

I had a great moment the other day realizing that since I refuse to keep cleaning supplies under the sink, the dog food and water bowls fit in there nicely. I just can't keep twin boys out of a cleaning cupboard less than five feet above the ground!
