How to keep your home clean with kids
Yesterday I met up with my friends Andrea and Nicole for their thoughts on our house plans. Both have built their own homes, with livability tricks like drawers in your laundry room so dirty clothes aren’t stored on your floor.
Part of what a space will feel like depends on how your family will live in it. While Matt and I want a floor plan that encourages family interaction, we’re also concerned the heart of our home will become cluttered. And it’s hard to find a space enjoyable with toys strewn underfoot.
Andrea suggested we convert one of our spaces into a play room that will become an activity center as our children age. Because when you centralize your toys, you have only one space to de-clutter.
When I returned home, I was on a mission. I moved every toy in our home into our play room. And before our boys went to bed, they needed to return their toys to it.
After their lights went out, our main level felt peaceful.
Their shared bedroom stayed clean.
The play room is a disaster, but that’s for another day.
How do you handle toys?
