It’s difficult to balance a career, family and housework!  Cleaning is also a hassle to get done when you are a working mom.  There are just not enough hours in the day.  I have come up with a family plan which seems to work well for me.  If you don’t have the funds to hire a cleaning service, then it’s easy for a working mom to be overwhelmed with household responsibilities. Developing some organization, however, will help busy moms with housecleaning chores. With a little preparation, you too can conquer the cleaning and get your kids and family involved! With a few simple tips, you can relieve the stress, have a clean house and find some time to have fun and relax. Be sure to read this for some practical how-to tips on house work organization and delegation

As our summer season changes from summer to fall, it is time to make out that checklist for the house and the garden.  It is an exciting time of the year as we make plans and move closer to the holidays.  It is also time to do fall cleaning. There are so many little things that you just don't have time to complete during your weekly cleaning that setting aside a couple of days helps me get the house in much better shape.

Make two lists, one for the indoor jobs and one for outside chores.  Plan to do the outdoor chores on a good weather day. The article lists the outdoor and indoor chores with several tips to make the job easier.  I suggest you again get the whole family involved. It is all part of the family working together which teaches them responsibility. They can be given their own chore list as well, and they can cross off the chores as they complete them.
