JENNA KATE AT HOME
As soon as you get up and out of bed, make the bed. It’s a small and quick task that will start your day off on the right note. Train your kids to do this, too.
While your coffee is brewing, unload the dishwasher. Load items into the dishwasher after every meal and run the dishwasher after dinner or right before bed.
File what needs your attention and throw out or recycle what you don’t need. Do not let mail build up on the counter.
Start the wash cycle first thing in the morning so that you have time to get everything washed, dried, folded and put away.
If you notice crumbs or a spill on the counter, clean it up. If food is dropped on the floor and the floor needs sweeping or a quick Swiffer, just do it.
Once the kids go to bed, get in the habit of doing a quick pick-up. Keeping baskets in each room for toys makes it easy to zip around, grab them and plop them into a basket.
