Keeping a Clean Home with Children


  • Trying to clean a home with growing children is like trying to shovel snow while it is still snowing. It almost seems impossible. 1st Choice Storage in Waveland can help you with your home organization and cleanliness dilemmas with the storage space you are currently lacking. We have also gathered some tips when it comes to keeping a clean home with growing children. 
  • Purge your Items
  • The reason you can’t seem to keep up with the messes your children create is largely due to the fact that you just have too much stuff in your home. This is especially true when it comes to children’s toys, books, and clothing. Children will outgrow large amounts of toys and clothing within a few months. Take the time to sort through what you have been holding on to and see what you can get rid of. If you just can’t seem to part with those items or you are saving them for a future child, a storage unit at 1st Choice Storage in Waveland is the perfect solution. Placing the items you child doesn’t need in a storage unit can help you to lessen the amount of items you have to clean up and give you the storage space you need for the items you and your children use everyday. 
  • Contain the Clutter
  • Once you have purged yourself of the majority of toys, books, clothing, and other household items you just don’t need, you can now begin to contain what you have. Enlisting in the help of decorative bins or hidden storage solutions can help you in finding a place for each item. When it comes time to clean up you have a specific place for each item and you are then left with a clean home. 
  • Have your Children Help
  • Getting your children to help you in the daily clean-up will help you while giving them a sense of responsibility. Encourage them in cleaning up their toys by making it into a game or by giving prizes. Your children will often jump at the opportunity to help you with a grown-up activity. 
  • Stay on Top of the Organization
  • While it may take work, you will want to stay on top of the clutter and clean a little each day. If you find yourself accruing a lot of items again then it is time to perform another purge. Have your children help you in sorting through the things they don’t use any more. 
  • Keeping a clean home while your children are still growing doesn’t need to be hard. By following the steps above and getting the additional storage space you need from 1st Choice Storage in Waveland, you are well on your way to having a clean and organized home.
