Make a weekly schedule so that you get used to doing certain chores on certain days. Friday do the vacuuming and dusting. Thursday wash floors. Wednesday clean the countertops and wipe down the kitchen cabinets. Every day would be clean bathroom and maybe laundry. If you start chores as soon as breakfast is finished then you'll be all set for the rest of the day. Get up and care for the children, put the laundry in, breakfast, clean up the dishes, wipe down the bathroom, finish the laundry, do the day's chore: vaccuum, etc. Then you are free to take the children to the park or library or shop or stroll around the neighborhood or just play and read to them.

Doing different chores on different days, and nap time cleaning.
Also, try tidying up after you put the kids to bed for the night. Or, if you have more energy, do some heavy cleaning then. When you wake up in the morning and things are at least tidy, it makes things seem not so hectic. You feel more relaxed and you only have a little bit to do here and there.
