Another sanity saver is teaching our boys to do things themselves.
Judah wants new hardwood floors? He can put them in himself.
Just kidding on that :)
But real examples would be when Judah finishes with something (a cup, a toy, a crayon) he generally brings it to me and says "I don't want it."
It would be easy to take it from him and put it away, but I don't.
I ask him what the proper way to say that is, and he says "No thank you." And then I ask him what would I do with the item, and he then runs dishes to the sink or crayons to the table.
We go over situations like this a dozen times a day, and he is slowly but surely learning to clean up the items himself.
