Our journey to remove the clutter from our home ... travel from disorganised to peaceful ... and finding a little fun along the way.

Train up a child .... or is it bribery works???
I think I learnt this from my mum and dad. I know like any kid I hated it at the time - but like many things, now I am a mummy I understand!!!
If you live in this house - everyone helps.
We have practised this ever since miss E was little. Even an 18mth old can help wipe cabinets down (vinegar and a cloth is a safe cleaning agent that any child can use!)
Most jobs are done because you are part of the family. The end. Just the way it is.
But I must admit I am not beyond a reward for certain jobs that I really want a hand with! And the great thing is, since we have stopped paying for rides etc when we go to the family events around home, Miss E loves money too. She saves and saves and thinks so carefully before she spends. (Maybe there is more than one lesson in this :)
This is my journey! I am a 38 year old aussie mum of two beautiful little girls!
I am a part time nurse just finding my feet in acute care, and I love my family with all my heart and then some.
I am passionate about our family. I love to preserve memories and make our life together FUN!
Journey with me as I learn. Maybe we can share some tips along the way
