Keeping a home organized can be a tough job in general, but get the kids in on it – or better yet, babies-and that’s a whole different level of difficulty. Toddlers come with a lot of stuff – diapers, diaper cream, wipes, lots of clothes and more – so it’s safe to say that if you don’t keep the baby’s room tidy for even a single day, you’ll find yourself lost in a pile of baby-related stuff.
