People say that you will be able to know the personality of a person once you get in his place. There, you would see everything from his outdoors, interior decorations up to the cluttering stuff that surrounds the place. Well, you could judge the person by seeing how miserable his place could be, but come to think of it…would it be a reliable basis to consider in getting to know an individual? I guess not!

But despite this, I guess the person won’t even try to explain to everybody why his shoes and socks are scattered all over, his chairs in living room are not properly arranged and the sala set is completely untidy. Then, what you need is just few minutes to know these tips that will be of great help in revamping your chaotic place to a home sweet home.

You should also consider your emotions and moods before you start decorating and revamping your home sweet home.

- Division of Labor is a Must
If you have more than two kids, you can give them different tasks where they can do better.

Suggest to them that they make the Division of Labor List and post it to the refrigerator where the name of the one that will not perform his assignment will be crossed and noted. You can even reinforce and motivate them in a way that they will be encouraged to do the chores.
