Having trouble motivating to clean the house? Me too!
It seems like every time I manage to pick up all the plastic crap, some little person chucks it around again. And don’t get me started on the laundry situation.
One idea that I like when the messes are particularly out of control is to set the oven timer for 15 minutes and tackle as much as I can before it runs out. I usually chuck all the toys into bins, but you can clear the kitchen, make your bed, or do whatever makes you feel like the house is tidy.
When the bell sounds, take a deep breath, relax, get on the floor together and make a new mess.
