If you dream of your child having a tidy room, but don’t think it’ll ever happen – think again!
We’ve got one amazing tip that should make sure your child picks up after themselves – and ten great storage ideas, all for less than £20.
The Time Tip
If your child has a set bedtime then this tip could work wonders! Even if you don’t have a set time your child goes to bed each night, you should be able to adjust the tip so that it works for you.
How it works:
Tell your child that for every piece of clothing on their bedroom floor each night you’ll deduct 5 minutes from their bedtime. For instance, if they normally go to bed at 7.30pm and they’ve left two socks and a t-shirt on the floor then they’ll go to bed at 7.15pm that night. Your child will hate this, as they’ll probably want to stay up as late as possible, so after a day or two you’ll find that you can actually see the carpet each night!
