I'm going to have to rat my parents out a little bit here. They were a couple of neat freaks. Sometimes it felt like we cleaned more than we played. But then on the other hand, when you grow up you realize that the only way the house doesn't go completely down the toilet with five children is to have people constantly picking up. So I guess I can see it both ways.
One thing that would have been perfect for my family when I was young is a garden bucket like this one from Kadie. We played outside a lot and had a lot of outdoor goodies – a decoupaged bucket is great for storing all of those things. More specifically, Kadie's bucket holds garden tools AND has a fancy padded seat so you don't strain your buns while working outside. Once hearing that, you are completely sold, right? It's really easy to make, and you can do something like this with a diaper pail as well. Visit Kadie below to learn how.
