Laura is a winner of Top 25 Home Management Moms - 2013

What's your best tip for keeping your home organized during the busy holiday season?

Keep an ongoing list and select three most important tasks off it to complete each day. In addition take 10 to 15 minutes before bed to whirl around your home putting things back where they belong and giving a quick general tidy.

What's your favorite store bought or homemade cleaning product?

My favorite product for cleaning is Comet for making my sinks bright and shiny.

What's the most important home management skill a mom can teach her child?

It is so important children are taught from a young age the skills of organizing. It is so much easier for kids to learn when they are young when the stakes aren't quite as high.

What tips can you offer for closet organization?


I absolutely LOVE the thin felt/velour/velvet hangers for your closet space. They literally double your hanging space. I highly recommend them. Laura
