How To Keep Your Home In Good Condition When You Have Children



You want your home to look nice, but this can be challenging when you have children. They’re usually running around and creating messes instead of helping you clean them up. Instead of accepting this as reality, be glad to know there are actions you can take to combat having a messy home.

Just because you have kids doesn’t mean you can’t maintain an orderly and tidy home. Learn ways to keep your house in good condition when you have children and ensure it stays looking beautiful and is a comfortable place to live.

Have A Cleaning Schedule

Keep your home in good condition when you have children by committing to a regular cleaning schedule. Choose to work around your kid’s activities and plan for when you have some downtime to tackle a few cleaning activities and rooms. The better you are at keeping up and sticking with it the better your home is going to look overall. Build tidying up and wiping down surfaces into each day, week, and month. You may also want to consider performing a deep clean whenever the seasons change.

Hire Help

Sometimes there are various household and maintenance tasks that are best left up to the professionals. Therefore, don’t be afraid to reach out and hire help for some to-dos such as cleaning your windows or power washing your home. In this case, you may want to check out the New Labor Panes location and see what services they have to offer in this area that you may find appealing. They’ll take the pressure and stress off of you and ensure that your home looks great from the outside. This may be very helpful if you’re busy during the school year but want to work on boosting your curb appeal.

Involve Them

Another way to keep your home in good condition when you have children is to involve them in the process. It’s an excellent opportunity to teach them some responsibility and for them to take ownership over certain assignments. It may be helpful to sit down and have family meetings to discuss which chores you delegate to them and answer any questions they may have. Delegate to your kids and then give them the chance and freedom to take on the job when they find the time and feel motivated to do so. It’s also a good chance to get your spouse or partner involved in the cleaning too and see what they can do to step up and help out more around the house.

Get Organized

It’s also going to be beneficial if you get and stay organized in and around your house. Keep it in good condition when you have kids by investing in a variety of storage solutions and adding more storage wherever possible. You want to make sure all your items have a place to exist that’s out of the way and hidden at the end of the day. Now is also a wise time to go through your belongings and boxes and purge and get rid of what you no longer need or want. The fewer items you have to deal with the easier it’ll be to maintain your home and keep it in order. Know where everything goes so you can put your stuff away properly each night and wake up to a tidy house. Your home will not only be cleaner for it but you’ll also be making your home safer.

Have the Right Supplies Handy

Do yourself a favor by having the right supplies handy in your home. Invest in cleaning tools, equipment, and sprays and place them in different rooms and closets so you can always easily and quickly access them. For instance, you can keep sprays in the bathrooms and stain removers and detergents in the laundry room. It’ll make you more inclined to tackle messes as they occur instead of putting them off. Also, anticipate common messes such as spills and stains and have a plan for tackling them immediately.


These are some practical and useful ways for how you can keep your home in good condition when you have children. While it may not always be an easy goal to achieve, it is possible when you apply these tips to your routine. Most importantly, work as a team and family to ensure you’re all putting forth an effort to maintain a home that’s not just livable but comfortable and clean most of the time. You’ll all enjoy living in it more and will feel less stressed out since you won’t have to stare at messes day in and day out.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
