If you have kids, you know how easy it is for their toys to take over. The toys seem to find their way in every room and make space look so messed up. Being a mother of three, I had literally given up on having an organized home. Clean, yes, but organized? I was afraid I no longer had the privilege to decide that on my own, apparently, my kids had a lot to say about it. It seemed to be such a thankless thing to do because every time I cleaned and organized my kid’s stuff, they ‘miraculously’ got back to how they were. And no, it didn’t take twenty-four hours. I didn’t think I had the energy to wake up another morning just to clean and organize those toys again.
Every morning I kept thinking, ‘what a waste of my time. This was totally not part of the bargain. No more toys for them’. But you, of course, know how the story ends. I knew to keep their toys, from the word go, wasn’t going to work. As a matter of fact, toys are very helpful for your kid’s growth. Plus they are the reason you can finish up on that movie, therefore, totally eliminating them is not even an option. I had to look for ways to get them organized and still maintain my sanity. If you are trying to handle your kids’ toys, then you have found the right place. Here are ways you can cleverly manage and organize your children’s toys.
Communicate With Your Kids
Kids are smarter than what most of us credit them for. Communicating your values to your kids is essential. Start as early as when they can get the sense of what you are saying. Teaching them discipline is too important to leave to chance. Yet it is surprising how many parents fail to accept this responsibility (no judgment intended). You can start by letting them know where they should keep their toys after playing or the places around the house where toys are banned. You can also tell them how much stuff they need, to prevent buying too much. Don’t forget to communicate the rationale behind your decision so that your kids may not just see it as a limitation on their freedom. Plus taking some soft measures if they disobey. You might seem too strict to your kids but instilling certain values in them goes a long way in their future life. Anyway, you must be the adult because after all is said and done, who will do the cleaning? Yeah, not them. So you might as well be a little selfish and love yourself.
Create a Storage Space
A good storage system is key in maintaining order for your kids’ toys. You will need to first come up with a storage system and this can be a large storage shelf that is simple and quite inexpensive to build. Then collect all the toys and categorize them to know what goes where. Decorative baskets and bins have always done the trick, remember to label them. For instance, you can designate a space for puzzle and board games on top of the shelf to prevent them from getting lost. Books are good for the kids but can also very easily get out of control, therefore, they also have a small bookshelf where they can retrieve a book one at a time. After you have stored them in a smart and organized fashion, you can rotate them to keep them fresh.
Have a Place For Everything
This is the best way of taking care of clutter. When every toy has its place, it is much easier for kids to tidy up when they are finished playing. With this, they won’t have any excuse if a toy is found misplaced. If some of the toys are habitually never in their place, it means it needs to move on because they don’t care enough for it to take a few seconds and place it back. It might be hard to cultivate this habit, but gradually they will get the hang of it. Cleaning the space will be so much easier and you might even find yourself doing it more frequently.
Assess and Donate
Toys, just like clothes, are age-specific and kids will grow out of some when the time comes. That is why it is important to assess your kids’ toys. Look out for the ones that they have outgrown and those which they simply don’t play with frequently. You can then donate them or sell them at a children’s consignment store as long as they are in good condition. If your kids are old enough, they can help you pick on the ones they no longer need.
Regulate How You Buy
Most kids have many toys, mine included (which I have no idea how they accumulated in the first place). And if you are reading this, chances are you are a victim too. To prevent turning your house into a toy shop, regulate what you buy. This will be made easier by having an idea of what you want for your kids and what they enjoy doing. You’d rather spend money on a few but quality toys than many simple toys that they are likely not to play with at all.
Involve The Kids In Cleaning
I know we’d rather do the cleaning ourselves but by now you know when it comes to their toys, they must get involved. It’s their possession and needs to be responsible for them. Involve them in the process of organizing their toys. Let them have a say as to what goes where. Help the kids be aware of what they possess.
The Bottom Line
As parents, due to the love and the need we feel to satisfy our kids, we might be tempted to overwhelm them with toys. If you have the storage space and makes you feel good, buy as many toys as you want for your kid. But at least don’t give it all to them at the same time. No kid has ever played with so much at the same time.
Having to pick from a wide range of colors that best suits your interior can be tiresome and confusing. You cannot use all the colors of the rainbow and their shades since they are quite a handful. However, you can use the shortest and simplest way to getting the right paint color for your interior without much hustle. Here are some tips to guide you through as you make this decision. Here are some tips to guide you through as you make this decision.
1. Go For Your Favorite Colors First
List all your favorite colors first as a headstart in your decision making. You may find that if you blend them together, you will come up with various color options that you would love for your home interior. Always start with your favorite colors first and not the colors that are currently trending, this is your home after all and there is no greater inspiration than seeing your favorite color every day first thing when you wake up.
2. Get A Color Chart For Assistance
In as much as you would want your interior looking colorful, you may not have any idea of the colors that match. Getting a color chart will guide you on the different shades that will make it easy for you to match the colors or even get an idea of how to get light colors to work with darker colors. The color chart also comes in handy for those that are color blind.
3. Identify The Texture Of Your Walls
The texture of your walls is also an influence on what colors you choose. If you want to paint the room, you have to pick a color texture that best goes with your wall to avoid getting it wrong. You can also change the whole appearance of your interior, not by painting only, but by putting up wallpaper that has the same texture as your interior.
4. Work With The Stuff in Your Room
Consider the color of your furniture, curtains, doors, and flooring, before choosing your wall colors. This will save you the trouble of having to go through magazines to figure out other colors out there that might not necessarily match your room’s surroundings. This also acts as a guide as to what colors to avoid.
5. Don’t Be So Uptight
You don’t have to match the same color schemes just because they fit together. Explore different themes and bring them together. You can choose a vintage look and tailor it to a brighter or different color just to see how it will turn out. You never know, it may turn out to be a good color surprise. Compliment it with some great-looking wall hangings.
6. Try The Monochromatic Color Scheme
Having one shade of color in the entire house may be a bit boring. If you don’t want to explore other colors, try different shades of the same color and paint on different walls around the house. You may get a lighter blue and match it with a darker shade and the effect in that room will be breathtaking. Check online for home interiors with monochromatic color schemes and choose the shades of color that you think will work best with your interior.
7. Match The Theme In The Room With Your Color Choice
The colors you choose should complement the room’s theme. It is not sensible to paint dark colors in a baby-themed room. The mood in that room should be bright to catch the attention of the baby. Brighter colors bring some sort of joy and satisfaction and a sense of calm to the baby. Try painting dark walls in such a room and your baby might even get cranky and cry all the time due to the mood portrayed. It is important that the wall hangings remain as bright and vibrant as the wall color.
8. Have a Practical Room
Seclude a room where you can test your ideas before putting the actual paint on your walls. This will prevent you from damaging your walls each time you paint and have a second thought about those colors. It is also cost-effective since you don’t have to use up all your paint just to realize it is not the color scheme you wanted. Get samples of colors first and after you have made your decision then you can buy the paint that you have decided on.
9. Consult a Color Specialist for a Second Opinion
Even though your colors seem to fit perfectly, do not shy off from seeking an expert’s opinion. This may help in guiding you on how to get the lighting of the room to go well with the colors that you have picked or even add some more colors just to make your home interior look more lively and welcoming. You may even decide to go to those home expos just to see things practically before you finally complete your look.
10. Create More Space With Colors
If you have limited space, try and get colors that will make your space look bigger. Having darker colors will make the room seem smaller. Try getting very light colors and play around with their shades to achieve the impression of a wider space. Match the colors on the walls with those of the curtain windows and create a sequence out of it just to break the monotony of single colors.
11. Minimize on Your Wall Hangings
Getting lots of wall hangings may make your walls seem too busy and the color beneath might not achieve the intended effect. Try having as little of the wall hangings as possible if you want to maximize the wall color. For instance, you can get one different colored wall hanging on each wall or just two for every room to ease the congestion in one room. Multiple wall hangings tend to hide the colors on your wall and create that multi-colored cluttered wall look.
The Bottom Line
These tips will help a great deal for both big and small spaces. Don’t shy away from being adventurous and at the same time don’t be too exaggerative on your color choice.
Deciding to move out and get your own home is one of the major decisions we have to make at some point in life. All those responsibilities and tasks that come with it are inevitable. However, you need to make your home as welcoming as possible to achieve that heavenly feeling that will calm you once you get away from the traffic, hooting of the cars and the busy office schedules and that night of extreme partying. Here are some ideas to help add that sophisticated and grownup ‘touch’ as a first-time homeowner.
List the most basic yet important items you need.
After you have gotten the space you need to make a home, it is advisable that you jot down the essential items needed in the house. For example, you will need a couch, some kitchen appliances, a good bed and such. All these items should be your number one priority. This step will help you to avoid impulse buying so that you don’t end up having unnecessary items that might take up a lot of space. Buy things that a few years from now, you will look at them and feel proud and not cringe. Buying a poster of your celebrity crush is an example of something that you will want to take down a few months or years down the line.
Research on different designs and colors.
Many homes have different themes according to the purpose of the room as seen in home magazines or home exhibitions. This means that for instance, you might choose a color such as sky blue with a touch of red for the bathroom or even a much lighter color like cream white or pink for the bedroom and so on. Remember you are a grown up now and want your parents to feel proud when they come visiting. Look for a home design that reflects that, forget that pink girly Hannah Montana-themed bedroom or the BenTen-themed roomed back at home, look for colors and decorative pieces that say two words, “Maturity” and “Tastefulness”.
Get An Experienced Friend For Assistance.
Once you make a decision on how you want your home to look like, you might as well need a second opinion and help on the finer details of your home’s appearance. Since you are now starting out on your own you might not afford an expert interior designer unless you are one of the under 25 millionaires of the world. An experienced person’s opinion also comes in handy when it comes to buying the stuff you need. Your experienced friend is likely to know their way around the market; where to find great bargains, the best stuff and you will learn a lot from them as a first-time homeowner.
Play with your walls to improve the look of the room.
Setting up a large mirror on your walls will make the room appear bigger. You may decide to frame your mirror with a cultural look or even get the color of the frame to match the one in the room. An artistic wall hanging too will make your home look more mature and grown up. You can find paintings or even decide to do your own DIY wall hanging using origami pieces that you made for example.
Bring safety to your home.
It is important to get a fire extinguisher for the kitchen in case of any emergencies. A first aid kit will also come in handy to get you prepared for any small injuries that happen around the house like getting a cut as you are chopping onions or falling on the bathroom floor. When your parents come visiting and see that medicine cabinet with emergency first aid kit and that other cabinet with all the house cleaning agents in one place and finally knives and other cutlery placed in their place at your tiny kitchen, then they will finally understand that their little child is now a responsible grown-up.
Adopt A Minimalistic Approach
Sometimes less is the best and letting your home stay spacious might be a great idea. Consider the minimalistic approach when choosing your home design. The minimalist design is a very grownup and mature design because you tend to go easy on the furniture, the colors and the decorations. This way you will less likely make a mistake in the design and that is the most grown-up thing that you can do.
Set up a space for your tools.
During your free time or days off, you may decide to do some handy work or fix something broken. Getting a space where you can store your tools in the right manner will pay off. One of those common DIY repairs might come up and those tools will come in handy. You never know when you might need them, so keeping them in your one location within your home is another one of the best grown-up decisions that you should make.
A Good Rug For Your Floor.
Adding a rug that has the colors that best suit your home will compliment your floors pretty well. You can get good wood designs and polish if you are not a rug person. If you decide to get a rug, get a good size that fits the coffee table if you want it in that area or a larger one that fits the whole living room.
Select a suitable room to act as your study or office.
Sometimes you may need a little time on your own to work on your projects or even finish up with the backlog at the office in the comfort of your home. Setting up a room or a corner in your home to act as an office is the best thing. It is therefore advisable that you get the most secluded part of thehouse for this purpose. Get a good bookshelf to go with your home office furniture and also add some vintage wall hangings or sculptures for that room.
There are endless ideas on how to make your home look more welcoming for families or even visiting parents. These are just but a few of them, but you can explore more options or even come up with ideas from your visits to friend’s houses. The above ideas should kick start living your life as a first-time homeowner.
Moving houses is a great time for most homeowners because they are going to a new and unknown place where they will put up their stuff, decorate and watch the new place slowly becoming home for them. However, sometimes moving can be a stressor in life because you are leaving the familiar and going to the unknown. You are so used to your old home because you are familiar with every corner and have favorite spots and so on.

The internet is usually a good place to start doing your research and if you have a friend or colleague who lives there, then it would be better if you consulted them on what to expect.
3. Have A Plan
Plan for your move early enough. If you are moving a month from now, don’t put off packing until the last minute. Inform your family and mentally prepare them for the move. Leave only the essential things that you will use and pack the rest for the move. You could even hold the last party in your old house and bid farewell to your neighbors and friends. If you don’t want to carry your current stuff into your new home, hold a yard sale and sell all your stuff then go shopping for new furniture and other home basics for your new home.

Your emotions will likely be running high especially if you are moving against your wishes. You could be feeling sad about leaving which is normal. That sadness is a form of grief that you should deal with. Don’t be afraid to experience those feelings of sadness or even anger and you can talk to someone you trust about them. This will help you move on quickly and become happier in your new home.
6. Make Plans To See Your Old Friends After Moving
Saying goodbye is always difficult. Make plans to meet your friends after you have moved. You could organize a house-warming party and invite them over. They could stay overnight and that way you will create the first great memory surrounded by friends that you love.

9. Come Up With New Routines
Your move to this new home has probably changed a lot of things. Your routine could be one of them. The household chores could have increased or reduced depending on the size of your new home. The stores could be driving distance now rather than walking distance as you were used to, back in your old home and many other things that could now have changed. Come up with a routine that will be perfect for your new life in the new home. Adjusting to a new routine will be one thing that will take away the stress of moving.
10. Think Of This As A New Beginning
Think of moving homes as a new start and don’t keep looking back. Everything changes at some point and your home has now changed. Embrace the new home and take your time decorating and arranging everything to perfection. If you have always wanted to try out a certain decorating theme, now is the time to do so.
The Bottom Line
Moving shouldn’t be a bad experience but an opportunity for you to make a new home somewhere else and make new beautiful memories. The above tips should help you make a smooth transition as you should.

Home laundry is something inevitable and probably a boring chore to most people. The good news is that, as much as we can’t make laundry day go away, there are ways to make it more fun (though fun is subjective), but definitely faster and better.
Something to consider to make your laundry day easier is to maintain your clothes well. This could include wearing an apron when doing a messy task to avoid stubborn stains. It is also advisable to have common knowledge of how to handle different types of clothing according to their fabric. You can get help with this by the instructions that are already in the cloth or ask someone.
The following are tips on how you can do laundry effortlessly and like a pro:
1. Get The Stains Out Immediately
When you notice you have stained your cloth, it is recommendable for you to get it out right away. It is for your own good and you will be grateful you did it when the laundry day comes. There are various detergents and items you can use to remove fresh stains effortlessly. Some home stain removers that you can use include club soda and hydrogen peroxide. Mouthwash may help with smelly gym socks that might have bacteria. Lemon juice will also remove rust stains and any discoloration, and at the same time leave your clothes smelling fresh. The less time you spend on cleaning the laundry, the less boredom you’d have.
2. Have a Specific Day For Laundry
Some people prefer doing home laundry almost every day considering their large family. This method is not very effective in saving time, effort and money. There are compromises that you can make to ensure that the clothes for laundry are fewer. You can achieve this by recycling some clothes like jeans. Your jackets and hoods can be worn more than once too. Setting a specific day also helps in getting organized thus reducing time wastage. The bottom line is, the less you wash, the less effort you will spend on your laundry.
3. Don’t Mix Clothing Of Different Colors
Always start by sorting your clothes out. No one needs the surprise of a black dye on their favorite white outfit. Wash the white first then the rest later. It may also be important to find out whether a cloth is colorfast. You can achieve this by rubbing a wet cotton swab on the cloth. If it stains, then you ought to hand wash the cloth separately. You might also consider adding some salt to the water to avoid too much fading.
4. Get The Right Water Temperature
Selecting the right temperature for your fabric goes a long way into maintaining their quality. Essentially, cold water works best with fine fabrics, sensitive dark colors that tend to bleed and clothes that shrink. Warm water is suitable for man-made fabrics and hot water for colorfast, really dirty clothes and white items. It is also important to find out whether there is a specific recommended water temperature on the cloth. To make your work easy, wash the fabrics using the same water temperature together as long as they don’t bleed.
5. Use The Right Detergent And In Small Quantity
Most people pick detergents because of their friends’ or family’s influence. This is definitely not the correct way of picking the best detergents for your fabrics. Majorly, there are two forms of detergents: powder and liquid. The powder is relatively cheaper than liquid. Though for quality, you might consider liquid because it dissolves much better and deals effectively with stains. Try not to use excess detergent because your clothes won’t get any cleaner, in fact, they may get dirtier. It creates too many suds on the cloth, which attracts dirt.
6. Reduce Fading of Darker Clothes
It is annoying to see a cloth you invested jaw-dropping cash fade so quickly. There are beauty and class that comes with dark clothes, furthermore, it makes you look slimmer. But the opposite happens when it starts to fade. It looks sad and cheap. You can prevent your clothes from fading by washing them inside out. This helps reduce the abrasion used while washing the fabric. You also don’t need to wash it regularly and use the right detergent when you do it. It is advisable to use liquid detergent because it doesn’t leave too many suds that give your fabric a dull finish.
7. Fold Immediately From Dryer
It is easier to fold your clothes immediately after the dryer rather than later. This reduces wrinkling. Therefore, you won’t have to iron every cloth. It also reduces clothes clutter which can be a depressing sight. If folding is not your thing, you can roll your clothes too. It saves on space and prevents wrinkles too.
8. Clean Your Washing Machine
Most people rarely clean their washing machine yet it is essential. It helps get rid of accumulated dirt and soap gunk that could otherwise be disposed on the cloth. Cleaning the machine also enhances its purpose as clothes are cleaned better and at a short time. At the same time, it helps maintain the machine.
9. Get Several Laundry Baskets
Most people use half of the laundry day searching for dirty clothes. Most especially socks and shoes. Let everyone have their own laundry basket where they can keep their dirty clothes immediately after removing them. You can also have one home laundry basket whose main purpose is storing your used socks. This saves time and reduces any frustration that comes as a result of looking for clothes. It might seem like an unnecessary gesture, but you will be grateful everything’s sorted out for you.
10. Reduce Shrinking and Stretching
You might have a share of clothes whose fabrics stretch or shrink easily and, of course, you would want to maintain their shape as long as possible. To prevent clothes from shrinking and stretching, use a gentle cycle of washer or hand wash. You can also use cold or warm water because they are less harsh to shrinking fabric than hot water. Something that will also help is reading the label of your cloth before buying. If the cloth fabric will potentially overstretch on a few washes, you’d rather save your money.
The Bottom Line
Home laundry doesn’t have to be stressful and it will soon be something that you don’t cringe about when you think of it. The above tips should get you on your journey to actually loving to do laundry.
