Clothes, clothes everywhere
Mom has to go around after everyone, collecting clothes from floors, beds, chairs, even the bathroom sink. So why not get rid of this part of the day.Get 3 small laundry baskets, one each for whites, colors and delicates. If an item isn’t in a basket, it doesn’t get washed. Now you only have to pick up a basket and take it to the washing machine. Much easier.It’s also easier if you have just one detergent to wash everything with. Tide is the perfect laundry detergent for all your loads, just make sure to use the right amount.
Dirty, dirty dishes
The kitchen can seem like a warzone on some days. A great way to make sure the dishes get done is by setting up a competition.Put up a high score chart and see who can get through the dishes in the quickest time. Everyone will compete to get their name at the top of the board, you can put your feet up and the washing up gets done in double quick time.If there’s still no help, try a different tactic: dinner! Get everyone involved in the process, laying the table, tasting the food and enjoying themselves. Children would love the opportunity to spend more quality time with you, and you’ll love it too! You can get things done in the process.
