The kitchen is easily the most chaotic room in my house. We cook most of our meals at home, so it can get pretty out of control in there if it is not kept up with properly. Here are some things that I do in the kitchen to keep it looking neat and manageable. Do the dishes! This is the one most important thing that you must do to keep your kitchen tidy. Unless you are a habitual user of paper plates and disposeable cups (I admit, I have done it on occasion), dishes are going to get used. Wash... Continue reading

Having two preschool girls in the home means a lot of messy spills and "accidents" that leave Mommy freaked out worrying how on earth I am going to clean it up!

As a busy mom, I don't want to spend a lot of time cleaning my bathroom. It's probably my least favorite room in the house to clean. Here are a few simple things that I do regularly to keep my bathroom neat and shiny. Keep a toilet brush by every toilet in the house. In the caddy that the brush sits in (make sure it is one with a cup that the brush rests in) keep a squirt of some type of soap and some water. It doesn't have to be toilet bowl cleaner, any old soap will do -... Continue reading
