Living with kids can be challenging for so many reasons. One of the biggest concerns that most parents have within their home besides keeping their home safe is keeping it neat and clean. Although it can seem like an impossible task, you can keep your house clean while your kids are still living in the house. Read on for some tips to a clean and organized house. 


Get Rid Of What You Donít Use


Too much stuff is one of the first problems in a messy home. You need to make a list of every space in your home. See which areas need improvement. Start in those spots to see how much more space you can make. Keep only the essentials. Everything else should be donated or tossed in the trash. If you have more space to get organized, the task of being neat will be even easier to achieve.


Everything Needs A Place


After you get rid of what you donít use, clutter can still accumulate easily. If you donít have a system in place to help your kids put things away, chaos will continue to ensue. How do you develop a sense or organization? Group things together. Electronics, batteries, and cords should go together. Different types of toys can have separate bins and containers. Keep blocks with other blocks and crayons with art supplies. Not only will things be more accessible to put away for your kids, but theyíll also be able to find item easier as well. Do you see that you still need a ďjunk drawerĒ? You can designate one spot in the house for miscellaneous things that either need a home or are in transition. Just donít let this space be too big or get out of hand. 


Have A Clean-Up Time In Place


Sometimes, clutter becomes a problem because we donít make cleaning up a priority. Add cleaning up clutter to your list of what needs to be done on a daily basis. Just as you clean your dirty dishes up from the sink, you should take the time to put items back in their place. Are you a procrastinator? Make sure you keep the importance of cleaning up fresh in your mind. Keeping clutter at bay is a habit that needs to be developed by both you and your kids. As a parent, you can make a game or competition out of clean up time. This contest can help to motivate your kids to learn your organizational systems and keep them in place. 


Keeping a neat house when you have kids isnít as impossible as it seems when you attack the project from the right angle.

Growing your own fruits and vegetables doesnít require an expansive garden. In fact, there are many edible crops that grow very well in containers. You can even plant some of them together to achieve an eye-catching aesthetic while efficiently cultivating your own produce. Here are the 5 best edible crops for container gardens:

Strawberries

Strawberries are an easy option for container gardening. The strawberry plant is a compact and quick-growing, doing well in hanging baskets, terra-cotta pots or any suitably sized container. Strawberries love the sun and multi-purpose potting soil, but thrive when given rich compost for extra nutrients. For watering, try to water at the roots to prevent fungal diseases from developing on the leaves and give the plants a hefty drink when the soil is dry.

Tomatoes

Tomatoes are another excellent edible crop to grow in containers. Conveniently, they share the same light and water preferences as strawberries, making them great container companions. There are a lot of varieties of tomato and some do better in containers than others. Try cherry tomatoes, Sungold or tumbler varieties for the happiest container-grown plants. Tomatoes thrive in potting mix with extra loam, but will do just fine in multi-purpose as long as you keep the soil moist.

Salad Greens

Salad greens are an incredibly useful plant to grow at home and do well in containers for a variety of reasons. Lettuces and similar greens have shallow roots which allow them to grow especially quickly in containers with limited space. Try planting an entire salad by including arugula, mustard greens and rocket. If you harvest carefully, you can encourage the plants to keep growing new leaves thus providing you with an extended yield. To do so, use sharp scissors or pruning shears to cut away the largest of the leaves only. This will signal the plant to grow replacements, often twice as abundant.

Carrots

Carrots are an excellent option for cooler temperatures and seasons compared to the heat-loving plants above. If you plant container carrots in early spring or fall, youíll have an easy and worthwhile crop yield. The key with carrots is the depth of the container. Because they are root vegetables, carrots need a more significant depth of soil to grow and develop beneath the surface. If your containers are not deep enough for full-sized carrots, opt for miniature carrot varieties that require less space.

Swiss Chard

Swiss chard is one of the most visually stunning container garden vegetables. Depending on the variety, their strong stems can grow in extremely vibrant red, pink, orange or yellow topped with rich green leaves. Swiss chard is an extremely nutritious and easy veggie to grow in containers no matter the color. Similarly to salad greens, chard has a very long harvest period when you regularly pick a few leaves to encourage new growth. Swiss chard is a very productive and hardy plant that will really thrive with regular fertilizing, moist soil and careful harvesting.

Container gardens offer several advantages, the greatest being flexibility. With these above crops you can grow an abundance of healthy fresh produce even with no outdoor planting space.
