I keep lysol wipes under the sink in the bathroom - espically the bathroom the kids take a bath in. Now when I'm waiting for them to finish their bath and have nothing to do and notice that there is toothpaste on the sink I can clean the kids and the bathroom at the same time!Tip #2:

We usually do spring cleaning or fall cleaning, de-junking and trading out our summer clothes for the winter ones. BUT we also do this with our cars. Because we're in a state that has four seasons, in their extremes too, we make sure there are spare blankets, gloves, hats, coats, etc. for the winter and extra shirts, shorts and even a blanket for the summer. This way, if we ever have an emergency away from the home, we still have some clothes on hand. It comes in handy for the little ones diaper blowout or a toddler spill. We also have heat packs, allergy medicines, sunscreen that we make sure to switch out when the seasons change. ~ShiloamTip #3:
When I was a kid, each chore had a "pay" amount. My parent's didn't specify who did the chore, just had us list what we did... $.25 for putting laundry in the washer, or the dryer, or loading the dishwasher, etc. To get a pay raise, we just had to up our work level. My sisters got so mad when I would vacuum the whole house and beat them to the paycheck. ~Found on Facebook by CarrieTip #4:
My 2 year old loves applesauce and also loves to feed herself. Can you say big mess?Tip #5:
So now I poke a small hole in the top of the applesauce cup, cut a straw in half, put it in the hole and she can drink her applesauce. No mess and great for traveling too. ~Carrie
I train my kids young [to do things around the house]. They love to unload the dryer - they don't fold yet but they do hand me everything from the dryer. They also carry all the non-heavy non-breakable things in from the car from grocery shopping trips. ~Kelly
