WAHM Cleaning & Organizing Advice
June 14, 2007 4:24am CST
If you are like me and are a work at home mom than you know how hard it is to keep your house clean and work out of it. My house seems like it is just full of clutter . So my one piece of advice is to tackle small projects each day. One day I will do the kitchen , the next the living room, one day is laundry, and so on. I dust and vaccuum every other day. Make sure you wipe down the bathroom everyday so that it is easier to deep clean. Do beds every saturday morning because my kids can help. I set aside one day a week just for organizing. We have a coat rack by the back door so we alwyas know where out coats are. There is a huge basket there also for bookbags. Kids have a certain place by the microwave where all of their school papers go that we need to see or sign. Each kid has their own laundry hamper in their room. I usually am not as busy in the winter as I am in the spring and summer. Because I have a huge garden I also tend to in the spring and summer. So I will have to set time aside for that. But my kids are home in the summer and help with that. My work stuff is kept totally away from the rest of the house. If you plan and set goals you should be able to keep your house clean and organized and still get work done !
