Household Tips for Busy Parents
Posted : Sunday 7th April 2013
Set the timer each night before dinner for 7 minutes and get each member of the family to do a quick tidy up.
Allocate a different coloured washing basket for each member of the family. When the washing is folded, it goes into the basket and that person is responsible for putting it away.
Put a notepad on the fridge so that each time you run out of something, it can be added straight onto the shopping list.
Before you do your grocery shopping, plan your meals for the coming week and base your shopping around it. Each night you will have the ingredients you need and only need to decide which meal you will make.
If your kids are old enough to help with the house cleaning, hide some money in places that need to be cleaned – if they do a good job, they will find the money.
