Top Ten Ways to Reduce Your Stress at Home

1. Create a communication center on the fridge for messages, chores etc.

2. Make a calendar for everyone to refer to ? write in daily schedules, appointments etc.

3. Keep the grocery list posted where all family members can add items as they run out.

4. Create recipe categories that make sense to you.

5. Keep related items together, for example the coffee filters and coffee "live" above or near the coffee maker.

6. Make a closet, drawer or shelf just for certain items (i.e., bathroom supplies, batteries, cook books).

7. Keep cleaning supplies in a bucket for ease of use.

8. Start a child's file system with a simple container, basket, file or shelf. It may contain information about their medical records, medicines, education, extra curricular activities, memorabilia, etc.

9. Finish one task at a time. Distractions will leave you with a lot of chores that are half way done.

10. Practice the art of wastebasketry. Take a minute and clean out, toss and purge whenever you can, don't put it off to another day.
