Stuff to save time

Color-full

Assign a color-coded laundry basket to each child. Let them worry about collecting their clean clothes and putting them away.

Wipe away worry

Keep cleaning wipes in every bathroom. I keep a container of wipes under the sink in the bathroom and kitchen and it makes cleaning so simple and fast!

The verdict is in

Designate an in-box for the kids. As soon as kids come through the door, it's their responsibility to leave any school papers that you need to see or sign and return.
