How do you keep your home organized?
Do you have a daily or weekly cleaning schedule or house schedule you use for your home? I'd like to know what you have found to be an efficient strategy for your organization. With our changing schedules and a growing toddler into everything, I am looking for a new/different approach to keep a better organized and toddler friendly that can make everyone happy if possible. With or without children or even pets, there are different practices that can work. What works best for you?
But the thing that helps me the most is I don't have a lot of dishes. I have enough pots and pans to make a meal and enough plates, cups, bowls and silverware to get through one day. Cutting down on the dishes makes it take about 10 minutes to do them even without a dishwasher.
I also have decorative baskets in the living room so when I don't have a lot of time I throw stuff in them and then clean them out when I have more time.
I try to keep up with the laundry because, if I don't, it becomes overloaded and feels like I am folding a mountain. I do the same with the dishes. I dislike clutter in my home as well. We want to get a shelf soon with cubby holes and keep the cloth containers (they fold out to a square) for toys for my son and future kids. My daughter has her own room and is older so there isn't much toy playing going on as she gets older.
I can sweep, mop, vacuum, and dust all I want but with a hubby and older kid, it never stays clean...nor do glass windows and doors. Lol
