One clever Aussie mum has come up with a genius idea to encourage her children to help keep the house tidy.
The mum shared her simple trick on Facebook.
A simple bucket, helps her keep the house tidy and the kids more aware of what they leave laying around.
Sharing a picture of the ‘chuck it bucket’, the mum wrote on a label that if she finds things laying around she will “chuck them in the bucket”.
She explained: “[Then], if it remains in the bucket for more than two days I will chuck it in the bin.
“If you have a problem with this, I will chuck you in the bin. Love Mum.”
Her post has proved popular with other mums and attracted more than 2,000 likes.
We have shared the Sunday box in the past, where you pick up the toys and toss them in the box and the kids can’t reclaim them until Sunday. Read more on that here.
I think my favourite system is still the “f#ck it bucket” Read all about that technique HERE.
What system do you use to get the kids to pick up their toys without fuss?
