"I just do one thing a day. One day, I'll do the laundry; one day, I'll vacuum, etc. If it gets done, great. If not, oh well." -- Marcela K.
"I just keep myself moving! I also declutter as much as possible. I don't always get it all done, but being organized has been the biggest step in the right direction for me." -- Brittany M.
"I encourage my two-year-old and four-year-old to clean up after they're finished with everything. Also, I don't say no to people helping me with my newborn -- like my mother. And I have a part-time babysitter." -- Alexis M.
"After I learned about babywearing, I finally managed to vacuum my whole house at once!" -- Lisa S.
"I have a lot of sticky notes on the fridge -- it's just as satisfying to pull down and crumble a sticky as it is to cross something off a list." -- Natalie S.
