Childcare takes a huge amount of time and energy and it could make you busy from dawn to dusk if you could not manage it well. Do not think that when you have children, it keep you from living in an orderly house. Below are some smart tips that can turn your house from mess to tidiness when you have children:
Create a relaxing and playful space
You may set up a small play space in the living room or somewhere in the house where your kids can see and interact with you and play on their own as you work around the house because the kids always like to play. It is even better if you could have a separate designed playroom for them so that they could enjoy playing all their stuff in one place.
Color code for some stuff
Children are easy to remember by seeing colors. You may separate color code on dishes, laundry baskets, towels school bags and study materials for each of your child. By doing so, when something is found wandering around the house you and your kids could recognize who left it just by looking at the color.
Control the paper clutter
Your children may bring their lesson papers from school and they are easy to make your home disorganized. Using folders and file boxes is a great way to fix the large amount of papers your children bring home day after day. You can check their backpacks everyday by keeping the paper in the right folder title.
Keep things where they are
A number of things like your children’s toys, shoes, socks, backpacks, books, etc. should be kept where they belong as soon as you or your kids are done using them. Doing so can teach your children good habit and it also keeps your house look tidy for the whole day if they can follow. Restocking items continuously during the day is less exhaustive than if you waited until the kids are in bed to do it.
