How do you encourage your children to help keep the house organized?
By setting the right example. I cannot expect my children to be better organized than I am. I give them the tools they need as well as guidance and usually they surprise me with their own version of order.
What advice do you have for moms trying to manage their home more effectively?
Recognize what stage of your mom journey you are in at this time. If you are an empty nester then go for that super organized pristine dream home. If you are parenting three toddles then stick with the children first, bare bones cleaning and taking care of you. Then take time once or twice a week to get rid of clutter and organize one tiny spot in your home. It will blossom into many as time goes by and you learn what works and what does noit.
What's the biggest challenge when keeping a home organized?
Clutter: No matter how often I get rid of it more appears. I think it is par for the course with a busy family and the kind of work I do. Stuff Happens and that is why at Mommacan.com we battle clutter every single Monday.

Do You Think It Is Okay To Re-Gift?

I normally donate unwanted gift items. I also do the same with duplicate toys from birthday parties. For this I put them in a hidden spot in the garage and when the holidays come I am ready to give to families in need.
