At home I feel most flustered when I see the living room full of toys or the closet all disheveled even after a full week of cleaning. Organization at home always seems like an endless chore, and in a house with kids, it is inevitable.
Some tips to share here, what works for me:
Toys all over – get a toy chest (which can also serve as an ottoman / table) in the living area for a quick toss in when needed. Kids love to own one and when they are declared responsible for the same, organization and clean-up follows.
