Les Mess: Organizing Card Game

lesmess1 As parents, I think we’re always looking for better, maybe even fun, ways to get our kids to clean.

I don’t know about you, but my kids seem to be under the impression I’m their personal maid. They are sorely mistaken considering I leave their junk where they left it. Hello, I’m not picking up after them!

Along comes Les Mess created by professional organizer Leslie Jacobs! I NEED my boys to help me out because I don’t want to can’t do it all. Here’s how Les Mess works:

Pick One

Do It

If you finish in the allowed time, give your child a present using the gift ideas or one of your choosing.

There are a lot of reasons for liking this Card Game. First of all, the kids are given a specific amount of time to clean. So, it seems like a task that’s manageable and won’t last foreeeever! There are even a couple cards that give the kids a day off and make the parents clean their stuff!

Third, Les Mess is well rounded. The kids get a day off when their parents have to clean the kids room. One of the cards has the kids reading for 15 minutes. And then there are the cards that give the family a free day.

Les Mess is a total keeper! I know that those wheels are turning in your head as to how to get your hands on these cards! Here’s where you can find them and their creator:
