Those that know me, know I take housework pretty seriously, or at least attempt to make it a priority. Sometimes this is difficult when you work full-time and have two toddlers. However, I came across this blog post on Full Time, All The Time (lives on Work It! Mom) that has some great tips. To date, I do most of them and would also like to add a few tips of my own, that help save time and be more efficient:
1. Pack lunches the night before (when cleaning the supper table, put left overs directly into lunch containers).
2. Take the trash out every night, no matter what.
3. Make the beds every morning – even if the house isn’t completely picked up, it seems that way.
4. Always have newspapers on hand – makes for a great “drop cloth” for the impromptu paint sessions
