We all would love a tidy home that’s Marie Kondo approved, but let’s be honest, kids definitely complicate that endeavor. With all the stuff they accumulate, and then, keeping them safe on top of it all, well, it’s overwhelming to say the least.
That’s where our guest, author and organizational expert Nikki Boyd can help. She’s teamed up with our sponsor Tide to help parents tidy up while also keeping safety in mind. Because as parents, we have more considerations than just making our homes adorably Instagram worthy.
Nikki offered plenty of tips we hadn’t even heard before, and we thought we’d heard it all!
Take a listen to her helpful tips and tricks (including a big one that surprised us!) right now on our podcast.

About this week’s sponsor
Our sponsor Tide knows parents love a tidy home, but have more to think about: making sure their home is safe for their children. They know that there’s a lot to love about the tidying trend, but living with kids can make that tricky. Along with organizational expert and author Nikki Boyd, they’ve created a Tidy Home | Safe Home Bingo Board to help parents tidy up, while keeping our kids safe.
Head over to the Cool Mom Picks Instagram account to check out the Bingo Board, and if you share it in your own Instagram Story and tag @athomewithnikki, you’ll get a chance to win a free in-home consultation with her.
