It’s no secret I’m a super clean person! I can’t handle messes + germs and really feel like I am so much more productive + happy in a clean space. As the little people get older, Joe + I have tried to teach them they all have a responsibility to help with the cleaning. I talked about how we do our daily chores here, but they are kids and aren’t always jumping for joy to pitch in. haha. Over the years we’ve figured out a few tricks that have helped! So today I wanted to share 3 of our go to tips to make cleaning with kids not become a chore itself, and why eBay is my new favorite place to shop cleaning supplies!
When it comes to having 5 little people, keeping things clean + organized can be a challenge. For Joe + I, we wanted chores to be more than just pitching in to keep the house clean. We wanted it to be a way to teach our little people more about responsibility at the same time. So when my friend Merrick recommended I check out the idea of a “family economy” from Ralphie over at Simply on Purpose, my mind was blown! It was almost exactly what we were looking for for our family. We’ve made a few tweaks and customizations to fit our needs, but so far have loved how it works! Since it is working so well for us, I thought I’d share it with you today in case it can benefit you too!
