First I can only focus on one room at a time. And once it is done, the kids help maintain it. My goal is to focus my attention on one room until it is under control and then move on to another the next day. If your time doesn't allow you to finish the room in one day, set the timer, do what you can, and come back to it as your time allows.
Because the entrance and front porch to the home are the first thing people see when they walk in, these are the areas I wanted to share first.
Now I know this sounds crazy, but do what you normally do with your house keeping for the rest of the week, and focus on keeping this one area of your home neat, clean and tidy. The house didn't become a mess in one day, it isn't going to magically stay clean in one day either. Although my approach is a bit different than Fly Lady's it still will get you to the same result, a clean, neat and orderly home. And as she says, "Baby steps, if you want to learn to fly we must first learn how to walk."
Each child has a set of hooks and once cleaned off, each child is only allowed 1 coat or snowsuit on their set of hooks,
Same goes for us.
