Perfection in Homemaking: The Reasonably Clean Home...

Hi Emily, loved the video! I was just discussing with my husband what to do about my children's propensity for "overlooking" items to be put away? In other words, I tell them to clean their room and they do. However, when I go to check the room, I find wrappers, little toys stacked on the dressers, and clothes stuffed into drawers. Any suggestions-- or is this just the plight of a mom with boys :)

On a side note, I was reading one of your old posts and came across a comment I had made from 5/2007. I have been enjoying your blog for many years now :)

Such wonderful tips! I try and double check the children's rooms. They seem to miss the corners and under the bed.

I loved your video. I'm probably a little older than most of your readers, but the issues never change. I have an adult special needs son that takes a lot of my time, plus I care for my mother who is living in a nursing home. There is very little time left for cleaning. There is one other thing that I need to do - keep up with the laundry. If the bathrooms are clean, the kitchen counters are cleared and the floor swept, and the laundry isn't falling all over the floor - well, I'm a happy camper. Thank you for your video and I'm looking forward to the next one.

it's helpful to pick up before each meal- because this means mama can relax in the inbetween times when toys are strewn about!

and it is so true about kitchen and bathrooms- we all work toegther and it is a quick job

Thank you for this! I've got a house full of sickies right now, but look forward to implementing some of the things you spoke of on this video. I have small children (aged 5, 4, 2, and am currently expecting baby 4 in August). If I start now and teach them to start cleaning their messes up, I'm sure the insanity level around here with drop. I haven't been diligent about helping them learn to pick up. Now's the time to start!

Thank you for this. I enjoyed it. When do you things like mopping, vacuuming, dusting etc? Do you have a regular cleaning plan for that? I know you've talked about deep cleaning before holidays on your blog. And something I would like to add is to not get overwhelmed by big jobs to the point where you don't do them. I have a friend that just can't start something if she can't finish it. For example my pantry would take 4 or more hours to really clean, top to bottom. I used to be able to do that, but now I can just get through it a shelf at a time. My friend could not do that. Sometimes just dedicating 5-15 minutes/day to do something extra can make a big difference. I'm looking forward to more videos. Thank you for sharing!
