With the kids out of school until the fall, we know that summer is one of the busiest times for moms and parents everywhere. That’s why we’ve put together this list of hacks to help you save time and be more efficient.
- Before a holiday or birthday, have your kids clean out their toys to make room for the new ones and reduce clutter. Keep in mind these four other habits to remain clutter free.
- Put a calendar on the back of your front door to organize everyone’s schedules and color code activities for each person in the house. This way, you’ll know exactly what is happening at which times and be reminded every time you leave the house.
