This past weekend I put on a brave face and opened the door to my kids' bedrooms. I figured, "New Year, New Us, Clean Rooms", right? So there I was standing at the doorway scanning what I knew would be the battle of the century. Just me and the bedroom... er, landfill. There was stuff everywhere. Some things were identifiable. Some were not. I lost count at the number of stuffed animals I found. Alas, the cleaning must be done. So I rolled up my sleeves and dived in.

3. Need a little zen while you're cleaning their rooms? Here's a dose.

4. Want to encourage the kids to keep their new rad room clean? Make a reward chart.

5. After all of that, kick your feet up and binge watch Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life on Netflix.
