Genius Home Cleaning Tips for Your Kitchen

I don’t care what the rest of your house looks like, if your kitchen is clean, the entire house feels clean. If I’m short on time before hosting a party, I usually focus on the kitchen and let the rest of the house go.

It’s like my little gift to them.

You need to have the organization in place so that everything in your home has an actual place to live. How can you put something away if it doesn’t have anywhere to go? (And no – the dining room table doesn’t count.)

And the discipline comes in after the organization. As in: you need to be disciplined enough to use your own organizational system. Ahem.

Getting Kids Involved In Cleaning Your Home
