I don’t know about you, but around here, at the beginning of each year, I tend to get the itch to organize anc clean. Get things in order. De-clutter. De-junk. Just get rid of stuff. I’ve had it bad this year. On New Year’s Day, we spent a good chunk of the day, going through an entire room full of storage. This resulted in an entire SUV full of stuff to donate. It felt SO good to get rid of some things, but I still have the itch. Today, I want to share with you 20 Organization & Cleaning Tips for around your home, and some ideas for helping to stay organized and on top of it all (which I am not good at!), I just hope these will help me to be better! 🙂

Part of being organized is having your children help with the chores. This Simple Chore System is one I used in the Summertime, but it is still working.

All four of my boys share one room, and they share it with their toys. If I had somewhere else to put all the toys, I would, but I don’t right now. I love the ideas that are shared at Kids Activity Blog, about 3 boys sharing 1 room, and keeping it organized.
