Dollar Store Cleaning and Organization Hacks
Have two laundry hampers, one for your whites and another for your colors. As you undress, sort your dirty laundry right away and empty all pockets. My husband is great about emptying his pockets so that is one less step I have to do before washing a load. These steps are so simple but make a big difference.
Keep clutter baskets on hand. Pick out a basket for each child and write their name on it. You can even gather a few crafts and have them help decorate the outside of their basket. For a quick clean up have each child fill their basket with their belongings and take them to their room. This allows the kids to get involved and really saves time for mom.
Keep a cleaning bucket with all your cleaning supplies in a closet or storage area that is easily accessible. I like to keep my favorite cleaning supplies along with rubber gloves, rags, paper towels, scrubbers, dusting cloth, and whatever else I like to use for cleaning, in the bucket. This makes it so easy to grab the bucket and go. When you are done cleaning, check the bucket to see if anything needs restocked. Another great idea is a cleaning apron. If you prefer to have your cleaning supplies on you during your cleaning, this is an excellent way to go. Find an apron that is sturdy and has lots of pockets for storage.
It doesn’t have to be expensive to get organized at home with kids – with some creativity, you can come up with some really clever organization hacks using items from Dollar Stores just like these ideas!
