Do you have a playpen/pack-n-play you could put him in to do things like vaccuming, dishes, etc? Or put him in his high chair with some cheerios or a few little toys while you do some cleaning?
My suggestion would be to 'schedule' blocks of time to do these 'chores'. Like spend 30 minutes in the morning on the bathrooms, then spend 30 minutes in the afternoon on the kitchen, and then 30 minutes in the evening on the living room. I know it's hard to walk past 15 toys in the floor, but just pick them up once - during your 'scheduled' cleaning time. Does this make sense?
I have some things that I do that help me, and I'll come back and share them later...don't have much time now, gotta get the kiddies in bed. But I have a question for those who don't sort their laundry - how do you keep your whites white when you wash them with the colors??? THis sounds so nice, but I can't figure out how you keep things from turning other things funky colors!

Okay, I have a post on my blog about my Organized Master Bathroom so hop on over there to check it out. It's small, but it is working for us.
We got moved into our new house this past weekend, and so far, here's what I've done: I have organized the TINY cabinets under our vanity and the the little 'above the potty' cabinet in our bathroom. I still need to hang something on the walls though...but other than that, it's pretty much done. I'll try to get pics today while DH is up (he works 3rd shift and has to sleep during the day) around lunch time. I've organized the cabinets in the kids' bathroom, but...

No, I wouldn't say it influenced our decision per se, we bought this house b/c it had several things we wanted. BUT, I will say that it was a good "perk", b/c I think they are BEAUTIFUL...
Oh yeah...reuse it! No shame in that!

Bathroom cabinets. Hall Closet Kitchen cabinets Pantry Laundry Room Just go through your house and write down every area/room you have. Then, cross off the ones you have done and go to one you haven't.
