I looooove to use the plastic storage bins, drawer carts, etc. to help me organize. I use the drawer carts for my lil one's diapers/wipes, clothes. I have smaller ones on my desk for my pens, paper clips, calculator, etc. I also have a laundry basket in each room (3 kids' rooms, our room, and the
bathroom. This way no matter where we change our clothes, they always get put in a basket. I use a large plastic tub for the kids' toys. Keeps everything put up and out of the way.
Before I start doing house cleaning,I take a few minutes to make a short list,probably four or five things that I want to do. Then I start,when I am finished,I tick them off one by one. Clean kids room, clean bathroom ,and so on.It saves time and gives me satisfaction when my chores are completed.
I also finish quicker if I have a list.
If I'm cleaning 1 room and find something that belongs in another room, I go to the other room and find myself cleaning in there. Instead, I now use empty laundry baskets to hold all the things that go in other rooms. When I'm done in room 1, I take the basket of stuff that belongs in room 2 and put them away, then room 3, etc. That way, I avoid running from room to room and I actually get at least 1 room completely clean! 334
