No more Disarray!!

I've been working hard at creating a schedule, cleaning every day and trying to keep up with household tasks. I'm trying to teach Alissa and Anthony to do some of these things with me. I'm trying to focus on creating little systems and routines that will make us live cleaner. I'm hoping to share these with you as I create them. The latest one was placing little hooks all over the house to hang up various things. One in my kitchen to hang up my apron, one in the bedroom for my husbands hats, two in the kids room, one for Anthony's hats and one for Alissa's bathing suit, goggles, and towel. She has just started a swim class that she will be attending 3 times a week. I have a chore list now, so when I go to do my cleaning, I know where to start, however I haven't gotten through the whole list yet, I'm not sure why not, maybe it's too long or I'm doing too much. I don't really know what the problem is. This is the problem I'm trying to solve. I think it will help when I get on a better schedule, but I feel like I spend a lot of time helping Alissa find things to do. I'm hoping that as I get her more involved in my chores, that she will get easier. Any tips you have for running a household would be much appreciated.
