Simply Organized

I'm a busy mother of 3 and know well how cluttered and costly life gets with children under foot. On my blog I share simple, inexpensive tips to stay on top of your biggest organizational challenges.

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

It's especially difficult keeping your home clutter-free when it's holiday time and there are kids living with you. My best tips are to do a few sweeps of the house during the week and keep your decorating simple. When you have a lot of stuff and a lot of decorations it can feel overwhelming. And doing a few clutter-removing sweeps each week will keep your spaces under control.

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

My favorite store bought cleaning product is Sprayway glass cleaner. It smells great, works really well and doesn't hurt the environment - you can even recycle the can.

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

To keep is simple. There will always be less to clean when there is less around.
