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

I like to keep a binder as a command center for all things holiday. There are sections for gifts I need to buy, holiday meal plans, calendars, school function details, etc. It helps to have everything in one spot to reference quickly.

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

Clorox Wipes. They are so versatile and keep the kitchen and bathroom smelling fresh. They are great when you find out you have last minute guests. A quick clean-up on counters/floors/toilets and your house smells great!

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

How to work in general. Whether it be cleaning up, cooking, or budgeting it is important to find ways to involve the kids and help them to know it will be their responsibility in the future. We use a point chart (http://www.alittletipsy.com/2011/02/printable-behavior-charts.html) for them to earn items they want so they can see their work pay off and learn that things do not come free.
