    One of my favorites is to put a nice basket in each room. throughout the day, kids can just take everything that doesn’t belong in that room and throw it in the basket. At the end of the day, everyone gets one basket to sort and return everything to its rightful place. With a timer and everyone hurrying, it is actually kind of fun. And it only takes a couple minutes for some cluter control between lessons rather than stopping to really clean.

    Very interesting article. I loved the Jubilee box and Dana’s basket idea. I may try one with my grandkids when they visit :)

    Great tips! We have chores scheduled out through the week – Monday is sheets and family room, Tuesday is outside and boys room, Wed is bathrooms, Thur is laundry and living room/kitchen, and Friday is big clean. We also have pick up scheduled at night with everyone being responsible for one room of the house.

    We just finished Big Clean Friday with our boys. There is a chore list for everyday but Fridays are left open for big chores or for a full house clean. I have to agree that no matter HOW you tackle chores and cleaning consistency is the magic key.

  17. haha! This cracked me up. I am glad I am not the only one who loses my cool after my house gets blown over in what seems like very little time! I do believe training is key. Parenting is constant. :)

    I love http://www.flylady.net She is a wonderful, Christian woman who helps me get the routines I need to keep things tidy! I also love http://www.loveandlogic.com for their parenting methods which help me lovingly teach consequences and have helped me break the yelling habit and be more soft spoken with my kids.
