6 Comments: Less Messy in 30 Days!

  1. Teaching a child keeping their space around them clean and tidy should be done from the very early stages of their up bringing, making them aware that clear space around them means something. But of course sometimes it’s easier and faster to do it by ourselves and then we are in a situation, when we need some help to bring them back on the right tracks 😉 Susan Urban helps a lot here. Very wise and experienced mother, she knows how to make a child’s room tidy again. Read this book, apply the rules and you will never get frustrated when coming into your child’s room again.

  2. This is great! Is there a PRINTABLE list of these days? Scrolling thru this page is overwhelming.

  3. This is a great 30-day plan for getting organized! Having a place for everything like you suggest is a great tool when it comes time to get clean-up cooperation. The structure really provides motivation in my home. I’ve also found that having one really special toy chest reserved for each child’s most prized possessions also helps provide motivation for my children to take care of their special toys. So we have the common, labeled storage bins for the shared toys and then each child has a special toy chest for their treasures! For example, one of my girls uses their princess toy chest for their American Girl Doll and accessories. Plus, you can find toy chests with “themes” that the children love. I found the princess themed toy chest on and they have many others based on your child’s interests: music, fire trucks, etc. I’m sure you can find them elsewhere as well. Sharing most of their toys is a great skill to learn, but taking care of what I call their “legacy” toys – the ones that they can keep forever and maybe pass down to their children some day – is also an important skill for children to learn!
