“Diving Right In” – Phase III (Maintain)

The maintenance process is very simple, in theory.  There is a place for everything, and return everything to its place.  This must become an unconscious habit (is that possible?).  Now this may be a difficult task, especially for children, but try to keep it fun.  Create a reward system for the children and the adults (my creative juices are flowing).   When the toys are put back in the toy box or the tools are not left in the laundry room, or the high heel shoes are not under the couch in the family room…. you are well on your way to Order out of Chaos.

Again, this is an on-going process, but everyone must participate.  Set aside some “organize time” at the end of the day (10-15 min.).  Everyone puts away 5-items. When you are done…..
