Research from Child Psychiatrists (1) suggests there are benefits to including chores in a child’s routine as early as age 3. Children who do chores may exhibit higher self-esteem, be more responsible, and be better equipped to deal with frustration, adversity, and delayed gratification. These skills can lead to greater success in school, work, and relationships.

Those are some strong reasons to have your kids do chores, right?

I’ve found that using a simple DIY chore chart really helps the kids stay on task and get their chores done – and can actually makes chores fun.

GENIUS Chore Chart Idea for Kids! Pay kids for doing chores with screen time.  Many parents have electronics use rules in their house, so why not get your kids to help around the house, do chores and/or clean in exchange for that time on their tablet, phone, or gaming system?  Brilliant!

My House Was a MESS!
And my anxiety was through the roof!

I needed a plan to get it together - it was all pushing me over the edge.

Thing is - we LIVE here... I never had the fantasy that my home would ever look "Pinterest perfect".

I simply wanted more control, less clutter and much less anxiety.

I finally found something that worked for ME.
  • My house is now easier to clean - I can now clean it in minutes, instead of hours.
  • I can now actually FIND the things I'm looking for.
  • I learned some simple decluttering systems that make me much more efficient every day - and I'm more relaxed and less overwhelmed all the time (finally)
  • My house now looks pretty darn good almost all the time.
  • Best of all - I no longer stress about guests unexpectedly showing up.
Turns out, it was so much easier to do than I ever expected.

This is how I did it.
