Purge the Clutter Consistently
Teach Your Kids an Organization Routine
Keep everything concerning organization within reach of your kids. If you have a shoe rack, place it close enough to the door. This way, it will be quite easy for them to remove the shoes and organize them instead of carrying them around the house.
Store Their Toys in Special Bins
Also, ensure that the bin won’t have the toys sitting too deep. Otherwise, you risk having your kids disorganize your home by taking out all toys to find the right one. Once they are done playing with the toys, teach them the habit of returning the toys into the bins.
Clean the House Daily
Sometimes something as simple as sweeping the home before the night sets in might be enough. Assess the high traffic areas and make it a habit to keep them tidy before the end of the day. It might also be wise to train your kids on how to act once you have cleaned the house.
For instance, they should know better than to walk into the house with muddy shoes. Consider rewarding them regularly when they commit to cleaning their rooms too as this reinforces good behavior.
It is the small steps that have the most impact on keeping your home organized. For instance, your kids won’t start being tidy abruptly, but with time. Commit to your daily routine and involve your kids in the organization of your home. In turn, they will value the organization as they grow old.
