There’s simply no way to keep your home organized if your spouse and children don’t participate in picking up. Spending time to carefully fold your kid’s laundry into neat squares is satisfying, but it’s ultimately meaningless if your spouse is just going to shove clothes in the drawer willy-nilly. I’m extremely fortunate to have a husband who cleans as much (OK, more) than I do, and one who instills the same habits in my son. But even my husband has no patience for KonMari folding—so make sure you choose methods that everyone can commit to maintaining. Then, make them maintain it. Your kids can handle age-appropriate chores, I promise, and remember, all chores are age-appropriate for grown men.
