What's your best tip for keeping your home organized during the busy holiday season?
Following along on our Holiday Shine Challenge at Mommacan.com. I actually complete the challenges I post, right along with my readers. Those 52 pick-ups and 5 minute dashes are life savers during the holidays.
I adore my holiday planner and I adore Christmas so this is my favorite time of the blogging season!
What's your favorite store bought or homemade cleaning product?
I love Method cleaners but I use plain vinegar and water most of the time along with some good old fashioned Lemon Pledge when I am feeling homesick for Memphis, TN, my hometown.
What's the most important home management skill a mom can teach her child?
The more your toss the less you have to gloss.
The more you fling the less you have to clean.
Less stuff more buff. ( the last one is for that mom that never has time to exercise!) The less stuff you have the more time you will have to squeeze in a workout or two every week.)
In other words, less stuff means less work. Simplifiying and downsizing are the new look and feel of a bountiful life.
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.
