I need all the help I can get in keeping my house picked up and not looking cluttered. Having two little kiddos makes this an extra-special challenge!
My absolute favorite mantra in relation to keeping the house picked up is:
If you take it out, put it back.
- If you take out an ingredient while baking, put it right back.
- If you take out a book to read, put it back when you’re done.
- If you take out a box of cereal, put it back!
- Teach the kids: If you use a toy, put it back before getting out another one.
- And so on…
This one tip makes a HUGE difference. Give it a try!
