    How do you manage keeping a clean house with teenagers on such a busy schedule?

    Here are my 5 tips:

    1. Assign chores to everyone in the household.
    2. Keep a chart to mark off when chores are completed.
    3. Spend 15 minutes each day completing those tasks.
    4. Pick one least busy day for laundry day.
    5. Work together as a family and complete any remaining chores at the end of the week.
    By taking just 15 minutes each day and completing chores, you will find that most or all of them will be completed by the end of the week. And it is only 15 minutes of your day! That leaves plenty of time for activities and such. If all else fails have fun with the chores. My kids love to put on slipper mops and slide around on the floor. Try some music as that gets me in the mood to clean while dancing.

    Staying on top of my teenagers week after week keeps our family structured and a clean household!
