My advice is take a week off while the kids are at school and decluttter. Get rid of unused toys, clean out closets, and purge anything that is no longer needed or used. But bins to organize toys and clothes, get shelving units for closets to maximize space and increase organization. Each night have the kids pick up their toys and messes, clean the kitchen after the kids go to bed so each morning you wake up to a clean house. It takes a lot of determination but its worth it for sanity purposes.

Like the other 2 ladies, I don't have a maid. I have 3 children and my husband and I both work full time. We have 1 day a week off together as a family and the rest of the time it's a balancing act with who's picking up what child and what it quick and easy for dinner but it all gets done.

If you need to get yourself together wouldn't it be easier to send the kids to school and have a week off work yourself? That way you can catch up on things without the kids in the way.

Ummmmm....huh? I am not following this train of though. I don't have a maid. We do it ourselves. It would not make a whole lot of sense to have your kids out of school....for what? To have them do all the cleaning? To have you miss a week of work? I just don't understand the correlation with not having a made and having your kids miss a week of school.

I don't know where you live, but why would you stop your kids going to school for a week if you are working and have no help?

I, too, am a working woman, and I know it is tough, but here in Australia, only the rich have maids. My husband and I do it all ourselves outside our working hours.
