Children. You love them with all your being. But the mess they can make of the house? Not so much. Keep reading for four tips on how to keep your home clean despite your childrenís best efforts. You might even be able to get them to join in on the fun! 

1. Cleanup after playtime. Build the habit of cleaning up one set of toys before moving on to the next, this not only keeps the floor from becoming littered in toys but also makes cleaning up more manageable for little ones. A large mess can easily overwhelm small children and by cleaning up along the way you make the task easier for them to participate in.

2. Have an organizational system for corralling toys that works for you and more importantly your children. Make cleanup easy by storing toys in bins and baskets that toys can easily be tossed into. Cleanup is made even easier when you give everything a designated place so there isnít a chance for toys to end up in organizational limbo. Do a walk through of the house sweep once little ones are in bed to ensure everything has been put in its place.

3. The easiest way to keep things clean is to minimize the amount of stuff you and your children own. Of course, this is harder to implement with little ones but regular clean outs of toys helps to balance the influx of toys that come during holidays and birthdays. Include kiddos in on the process to pick out their favorites and get them excited to donate toys to other children. You can put some toys in storage and swap them out regularly throughout the year to minimize the amount kept in the home and reignite your childís interest in them as well.

4. Create regular routines around the house to instill clean up habits in your child early on. Create designated areas around the house for play time, quiet time or even homework. This helps children adjust to focus on the task at hand as well as prevent toys from ending up all over the house. By keeping a routine time of day to do a  household chore youíll also teach little ones the importance of having work ethic around the home. You can even involve curious kiddos in the chore by buying them a child-sized broom or vacuum to ďhelpĒ. 

Keeping a tidy home with little ones in the house isnít the easiest of tasks. But by minimizing the amount of stuff you own and instilling a regular clean up habits you can keep on top of messes. You can even create some fond memories and bonding time with your child by including them in on the fun. Happy cleaning!

Adult children move back home for a variety of reasons. Opportunity to pay for college without taking on housing costs, unemployment and a desire to live amongst family are a few reasons why adult children return home. Make the living situation rewarding for you and your adult children by creating an independent living space for your offspring. Space for all ages Do your adult children have children of their own? †If so, childproof your home by installing security gates and latches. Create a play space for your grandchildren and make sure that everyone has adequate sleeping space. Bunk beds, sofa beds, day beds and inflatable beds save space. Some sleeping options like the inflatable bed can be stored in the closet, while others have a dual purpose, functioning as a bed at night and as a sofa or seating space during the day. Privacy matters and living expectations Room dividers offer privacy, a bonus that adult children want. Youíll also want your own privacy. You can get the privacy that everyone craves by creating verbal living agreements with adult children. Items† to cover in agreements include adult children letting you know if they plan to have company over, particularly if they want to host large gatherings like barbecues, parking, rent., childcare arrangements (if youíre a grandparent), cooking expectations and house cleaning responsibilities. Basements and attics work wonders Design your basement as a family gathering area. Add entertainment resources like a pool or ping pong table, wide screen television, shelving for board games, sofa and plenty of chairs. You could also turn your basement into an apartment, adding a bathroom, kitchen, living room and bedroom. The last option could pay off after your adult children move into their own home if you decide to rent the space out. Put a bed, a dresser, closet and a small refrigerator in the attic and youíve added another living space to your home. Add a permanent staircase, as pull down steps may weaken with constant use. Add value to your home by designing your attic so that it meets local housing codes. Also, make sure that there is sufficient insulation in the attic. Itís the closest room to your houseís roof and, absent adequate insulation, could become especially cold during winter or unbearably hot during summer. Adding a room could increase your homeís value If you donít have a basement or an attic and live in a house thatís 1,500 square feet or smaller, it might be time to add a room to your house. Get bids from contractors and negotiate the best deals. Get the most value out of the new room by building a bathroom and small kitchen into the space. Again, think space to accommodate your adult children as well as how changes that you make now could increase the overall value of your home.
