  • It's impossible. I'm a clean freak, and clean constantly, and within five minutes of being perfect, something will be messed up again, lol.

  • I think the bigger the house the more organized it is, I keep my 5,000 square feet home pretty organized because the mess is localized in a certain section.

  • Sometimes I do get frustrated with the house. My son and husband make messes a lot and it seems like I can never keep up.

  • about every 4 to 6 months we go through the kids toys and get all the broken, and unplayed with toys and take to Salvation Army we used to have to do it when the kids wernt looking but now they help, my daughter at 4 states she didnt want any of her old baby dolls and i was so pleased b.c they took up so much room, i mean come on how many plastic and cloth naked baby dolls laying around she kept 1 and gave the rest away and that was about 10 of them.

  • Boxing up toys and switching them out ever so often is a really good idea. Everytime you bring out th e"new" old stuff..its like getting somethhing new for the kids and they show a bunch of interest in it. I do that too.
    My biggest thing on keeping organcized is throwing out stuff right away that we dont need or will never use. Even if I look at it and think, I MIGHT use it someday..I give it away or toss it. I hate clutter. Toys on the floor is a differnt story..thats inevitable when you have kids.
    As far as everything...everythign has a place and everythign goes in its place. We've got shelves with baskets, I even have an extra dresser (a small stylish one) that I keep down in the living room that I keep diapers,wipes,and other baby stuff in for down stairs.Its also a perfect place to put things away for a quick tidy up. I get up early and do most of my cleaning..so the house IS clean..only toys are scattered around.
