I have spoke to many people over the years that say they wish they were more organized, but there’s just not enough time in there busy schedule. In my mind, it’s not an option… staying neat and organized is my #1 priority. It shouldn’t depend on whether or not you have the time, or how busy you are… a little here, and a little there, is all it takes! Make time!! If I start to fall behind on my daily tasks, I start to feel a bit overwhelmed… and that’s just unnecessary stress added to an already-stressful life! 🙂 Our goal is to minimize stress, right?
Staying organized has been a passion of mine since childhood. I remember when I was very young, my sister and I shared a room growing up, and we were total opposites! I often asked her to clean her area of the room, but she would refuse. So one day, we made a divide down the middle of our room with tape, and we both agreed not to trespass onto each other’s side! Lol
Keeping the house clean, and orderly doesn’t need to be a burden when you break it up into small tasks every day! If your a little busier some days then others, instead of vacuuming the entire house… vacuum an area of the house, instead! Dusting is my all-time least favorite chore, but, it’s not so bad when you do one area at a time! If you’ve got a little extra time on your hands then usual, or if your just feeling froggy, throw in a load of laundry and scrub a toilette or two!
Staying clean and organized actually makes life easier, makes you feel good, and you never know when you might get that unexpected visitor at the door… it’s always nice to be prepared! Furthermore, it will make for a better work day knowing you’re coming home to a nice, clean, house! Make life easier for yourself! Prioritize and organize! 😉
When evening rolls around, I am tired, ready to wind-down and ready to relax. So, my goal is to spend as least amount of time in the kitchen, as possible. I often find myself looking for the easiest, quickest and less-mess meals to prepare… like casseroles! They are definitely my #1 go-to meal!! It takes me half the time to make a taco casserole then it would tacos. No need to fry up any tortilla shells, when you can just throw in some tortilla chips! 🙂 Lasagna, being one of my favorite meals, is also one of my least favorites to prepare….until I discovered lasagna casserole! It’s much easier to make and tastes just as good! If you really want to get lucky, there are no-boil pasta recipes. Talk about easy!! Another classic favorite of mine is chicken noodle soup… but chicken noodle casserole is just as good and takes much less time to make. Enchilada casserole is also a much easier alternative to enchiladas. Some of my other various faves are pizza casserole, tator tot casserole, sloppy joe casserole & burrito w/ rice! YUM!! There are no rules to casseroles… you can get creative and have fun with them! They are the ultimate comfort food and always satisfying! You don’t have to slave for hours over a hot stove, for dinner to be delicious…. but your family might think you did! 😉 You can double the recipe and have plenty of leftovers for the next day, which will taste just as good! Dinnertime doesn’t need to be a burden. Make it fun! Make a casserole!
Trying to keep a house clean with seven children is nearly impossible and is a full-time job in itself. In addition to babies, baths, laundry, dishes, grocery shopping, bills, breakfast, lunch & dinner.. one may consider hiring a maid to do all the cleaning. But as for me, it is not an option! I prefer to do it my way, and knowing that it has been done thoroughly. Besides, there’s no need to make someone else rich off something I can do myself. So, the secret to keeping my house clean and orderly, on a daily basis, is by sticking to a schedule! If I don’t stay on top of one thing or another, I will quickly fall behind on everything! Planning dinners beforehand, doing at least one load of laundry per day, and wiping down the bathroom countertops and toilets, are just a few of my daily duties. Paying the bills as they come, buying my groceries in bulk, and preparing lunches the night before, are always helpful if I am to stay on course. Further, washing the dishes after every meal and vacuuming an area of the house everyday, makes life all the more easy. I do not hesitate in insisting that every member of the family do their part in sharing the load. My husband helps with meals, baths, dishes, and much more. Though, most is voluntary on his part, and is done on the weekends. As for the kids.. if they are old enough to make a mess.. they are old enough to clean it up! So, they are taught to clean up after themselves, keeping their rooms vacuumed and tidy. They are also to help with the laundry, dishes, trash and some childcare. Though, they are of some help to me, I do bear the brunt of the load. The tasks that they fulfill are meant only to build their character. Anyways, applying some of these routines to your daily life may be helpful to the everyday mom and/or housewife. Ultimately, a strict schedule is key to running a home properly and responsibly.. it will payoff !~
