If there is no place to "put it away," how can it be put away? Be sure to set up kids' playrooms and bedrooms with plenty of storage and designated spots for toys, clothes, books and other frequently used items. Encourage kids to put items back in the designated spots when they are finished or during a "pick up session."
Not enough space for everything to have a home? Perhaps it may be time to pare down toys the are broken, no longer used or that your kids may have outgrown. Or consider moving some items into storage and rotating to keep them fresh (at least in your kids' minds, right?).
For the month of February we are going to focus on keeping your family organized. We'll address topics from staying organized while pregnant, getting organized for baby and simple ways to teach your kids to help keep your house in order.
