How can a mother manage keeping her home clean when there is never time to clean because of the little ones

I have to say that once I decluttered my house because we were selling it, it's become so much easier to maintain it even with two kids. I cleared out of all toys that were no longer age appropriate, toys that they played with were organized and put in specific homes, and stuff that people had purchased that was advanced was put into storage. Toys were grouped into clear bins by categories so the kids could see what was in it.

I also have the kids help with cleaning, it sometimes takes longer but as a single mom I need to clean but I still want to spend time with the kids. So they help with vacuuming, laundry, and cleaning up their messes. I was the dishes at night after dinner and put them away before work. If laundry is getting out if control I put a load in before work, and put it in the dryer when I get home.

But I've also come to accept that my house is not always going to be clean. I've learned to live with little things.
