What are some things you do to keep the house organized and life less hectic? I have 4 soon to be 5 and can always use tips! I'm sure other moms would enjoy reading as well.

I like to bulk bake on the weekends so we have 'fast' food, cookies and other desserts all ready when we want/need them.

I also like to keep a weekly menu on the fridge so I don't get asked "what's for dinner?" Over and over :). I find that planning a weekly menu also keeps grocery costs down.

I try to plan my menu as well. Its easier than trying to figure it out at the last minute, then only to realize you don't have all the stuff you need.

I clean one room a day. And do one load of laundry a day.

I make a menu for the week and stick to it. It helps on food cost and for the kids to know what is for dinner so they are not constantly asing.

All toys are in one room and one room only, toy boxes are marked with what toys go where.

Shoes, coats, backpacks all are in their cubbys my hubby made.

Even still, it is very hard to stay organized lol. 6 kids running around all in different sports make it difficult for things to run smoothly
