Have done so much sorting, it looks lovely, dh and I have worked really hard. How can I stay on top of it all? What jobs do I need to do every day, can some of you houseproud MNetters tell me your routine?Thanks!
Recycle all the paper rubbish, including the dcs' scribblings. Only keep what you really need to. Put dc drawings you want to keep in scrapbook or file.Get the dcs in the habit of putting all their toys back where they belong at the end of the day.
I am SO bad at throwing their drawings away - and dd makes loads of sculptures too, and can't bear to chuck them! I do put them away in loft though periodically

oooh, good idea, Califrau
Every time you see a relative get your dcs to "give" them one of the pictures as a present.I try and do maybe 2-3 household jobs every day, say half an hour of housework. e.g. one load of laundry, wash bathroom floor, change bed (on one day).
I follow flylady kind of which does help you to develop routines & keep it under control - why don't you look at a flybaby thread?
