Help - My house is a tip!

Well...not a complete tip. My kitchen could do with some serious organising, my bedroom and DD1's bedroom needs a bloody good organise, my dining room looks like a junk room and my bathroom needs a good clean.

I have fivromyalgia and find cleaning a big house with stairs to be a mean feat and with DD1 a three year old hurricane, I find it difficult to keep on top of things.

We don't have a lot of storage so if anyone could provide their lazy tips on keeping a house in ship shape, I'm all ears eyes.

Could you get storage I use underbed boxes and crocodile boxes for toys.

I do a lot of 15 minute blitzing, I have PND and somedays can't be bothered but I find if I start off doing 15 minutes it looks good and I want to do more.

Get DD1 to help,make it into a game put on a song and pick things up until the song is finished. Challenge her by saying "I bet I can pick up more toys than you" or my favourite give her a bag and tell her when it is full she can have a biscuit grin.

I clean the bathroom when the dc are in the bath, wipe the shower walls while I'm in the shower.

Babywipes are your friend they clean anything.
