Organization Tips

Here's a great link on Organization in the Home!
I'm looking forward to trying out several of the tips mentioned here. Especially the ones on including the children.
I have bought a set of nice looking hard plastic plates, bowls and cups for the kids to be able to set the table with. I will use these during the weekdays and then the kids can both set the table and empty the dishwasher. They love to help with both of these things and this way, I know that the plates aren't going to break like glass would on my tile floors!
I want to get some child size brooms so the kids can help sweep the floor, and perhaps a child's size vacuum so they can "help" vacuum when I do.
I like the idea of the dirty and clean clothes baskets in each child's room as well.
I also like the idea of the quick pick-up around the house with consequences if it's not picked up. (taking a toy away and earning it back)
I can hardly wait to get back home and start implementing all my ideas that have been accruing over the winter months!

  1. That is an inspiring picture she has posted! My home looks nothing like that, I am sad to admit. I plan to get started on the cleaning/organizing tomorrow. It would be nice to have a relaxing home!
