Keeping the Family Room clean can be a time-consuming project. Try this:
- I have a rule that no toys (except baby toys) are allowed downstairs. We have bedrooms and a game room for them.
- I also keep a cute basket under my side table and as I go along during the day I’ll pick up the toy, sock, or other stranded item and throw it in the basket. About once a week I’ll carry it upstairs and put it away.
This has really cut down on the stress of running up and down the stairs. I’ll also get my kids involved and when we’re cleaning up (at 6:00 right before dad comes home) I’ll have them drop the items in the basket as well. That way we can get it done faster and with less resistance.
My basket was completely full so today I sorted through it and put everything away! What tips do you have for keeping your family room clean?
