They help to make like increasingly easier, as well as allow you to save time in the long run. An example of this, in relation to cleaning a bedroom, could be setting up a room clean up right before bed time.

This means that if they do something good, they will receive something good, whether that is a physical item or praise, etc. An example of something that could be done in order to keep a child on track is to create a calendar, saying that if they clean their room every single night, and keep their room clean for every day over the course of a month, then they can get a toy. Anything similar to this could easily work!

The strategy to do this is by creating an extremely simplistic organization method. By labeling drawers for specific items, or labeling bins for specific items, you give every item a place. Once every item has its place, things become much easier to put away.
