organizing . . .

My whole blog is about little tips to organize your life, kids and yourself.  Here are a few things I do around our house to keep things easy.

  1. I keep tons of toilet paper on hand.  And I am constantly restocking bathrooms.
  2. I keep a pair of scissors and a measuring tape on each floor.  Laundry room (basement), 2nd floor in our bedroom (in my dresser) and in the junk drawer in the kitchen.
  3. I keep an all purpose cleaner on each floor.
  4. I have a spot for missing socks in the laundry room.
  5. I have a drawer in the kitchen for kitchen towels.  Instead of kitchen towels I use white wash clothes.  I like the size.  I like the fact that I can bleach them.  They are cheap (IKEA in the kids section).  And they are very absorbent.
  6. Every night before I go to bed, I clean up the house.  This is NOT a full cleaning, I just make sure everything is put away.

Those are just a few of our tricks.  XO
