Organized home with two little boys

by Sandra

Maintaining an organized home and trying to keep up with the over-growing garden, not to mention my two little boys. It’s easy to let chores slide.

The question I face is how to keep up with everything with two 13 month boys to look after.

The answer: a little bit at a time.

I thought I would be able to keep an organized home when the kids take their nap....problem...they don't like to take naps and when they do I am so tired!

At first I was completely overwhelmed. Washing clothes, keeping all the utensils clean, organizing bills.

Everything was just piling up and not getting done.

However, I have found that it is easier to stay on top of things one small step at a time.

I get 2 minutes here and 5 minutes there, and I find that just doing a little at a time can really make the difference.

I am even able to make some fun and games with the laundry - playing games with the children while I do some loads of washing.

Thanks for your organizing tips.
