Have you been wondering how to have a clutter free home with kids?

It really is not an impossibility we just need to have to the right stratergies in place.

Having a clutter-free home when you have young children can feel like a complete impossibility. They have endless toys and ‘stuff’ like changing mats and rattles, bottles and dummies.  You are busy, overtired and in constant demand. Surely it’s impossible to keep the clutter in order?  It isn’t though .you just need to be smart in how you tackle your clutter and you will be able to control it. Some people will advise you to just let clutter be when you have small children and accept it is part of the stage you are at in your parenting.

I don’t agree with this at all though. I think clutter causes problems both physically and emotionally and it is best managed.

Why clutter is an issue

Clutters not ideal when you have a baby or toddler because really it just adds to the chaos and disorder that a demanding young child brings. This can make you feel stressed and that you are not in control. A calm environment will make you feel more ordered and in control. It is also much safer of course for a young child to be in an uncluttered environment.


How to easily control your clutter

  • The easiest way to control your clutter is not to have too much ‘stuff’ in the first place. reducing your consumerism means less clutter and less expense. babies need very little really to entertain them and meet their needs. Don’t overbuy. This is key if you want to know how to have a clutter free home with kids
  • Regular tidy up routines also really help with clutter so a clean sweep just before supper is well worth the 15-minutes it will take. – no matter how tired you are.

    What a wonderful post, Becky. Of course, one has to become aware of the growing issue of consumerism. The lesser you own, the lesser clutter you can end up having! A regular decluttering session is not only a must for any home, but it can also be quite therapeutic. Thanks for the tips!
