I feel like my house is never clean. There's dirty dishes to be put in the dishwasher but it's full of clean ones that need to be put away, there's clean clothes and dirty clothes in the same dilemma, the floor needs to be vacuumed, the trash taken out, bills to be paid, diaper bags and coats and shoes all over the place, toys here and there and the list goes on. After the kids are in bed I work so hard to get it cleaned up and by the time I go to bed way too late, it's looking good. The next evening it's the same story and weekends are even worse. What do you do to help with the mess/clutter/chores? Do you have any good ideas to share so it doesn't build up into one hard to tackle project. I try to make a daily chore list for myself and my husband. I have a 3 year old and 8 month old. I just feel like I don't want to take the time to clean when I could be spending time with them. The days fly by and I easily feel guilty for time not spent with the kids! Please help with good tips and advice!
