Mom's "F*cket Buckets" Are The Must-Know Hack For All Parents Of Messy Kids

Children are notoriously messy. All they want to do with their time is have fun. Why bother picking up your toys when you're going to want to play with them again in the morning, right? They just can't see things from their parents' point of view. One mom, however, came up with an ingenious hack to solve this very problem for good.

Aptly dubbed the "f*cket bucket", Jessica McGinty of Mishmash Moments explained, it's a bucket where, simply put, she will store everything she finds lying around the house. If it's still there by the end of the day, she'll put it in the trash.

And yes, by the trash, I mean the actual trash - the point of no return for children who are careless with their toys. That's certainly one way to teach them.

"If they leave it laying around, it goes in their bucket," Jessica continued. "If it's still there at bedtime it goes in the bin [trash] because f*cket if I'm cleaning it up."

Understandably, this brilliant idea caused quite the storm on the social media website, and the post was flooded with comments from people who believed that it was a great idea - not just for children, but for husbands too.

One mom even revealed that she'd skipped the bucket part of the hack altogether and simply thrown out her kids' stuff!

The beauty of this hack is that you'd only need to have it in operation for a day or two. Toys are kids' prized possessions and they won't do anything that could jeopardize them - even if it means cleaning up after themselves!

Now, we don't know about you, but we're off to Walmart to invest in some f*cket buckets of our own.
