Stockbridge family gets organized on Rachael Ray Show

STOCKBRIDGE, GA (WXIA) – A family of 17 is putting their New Year's resolutions to work and taking a 31-day challenge with the Rachael Ray Show.

Lachelle Adkins like to believe her days are filled with controlled chaos.

The 42 year-old mother of 15 – yes, 15 kids – has a plan for 2015: to get her home and life more organized.

"For each challenge you have, try to incorporate as many family members you can so you can get the task done," she said.

The Rachael Ray Show contacted the Adkins family to participate in a 31-day New Year Challenge to get organized. They will take on a chore for just 10 minutes a day for 31 days.

"I have 15 children and lots of clutter," she said.

Lachelle and her 17 year-old daughter Mackenzie went to New York to be on the show. Their first challenge is a new and improved laundry room and family time together while folding clothes in the living room.

"The more people you have to help -- we can get it done in a quick amount of time," Lachelle said.

"It's helping keep the laundry room more organized, because it was really out of control," Mackenzie said.

Most of the family -- ranging in age from 10 months to 24 years old -- says they plan to stick to the 31 days. Mom sure hopes so.

The Rachael Ray Show airs on 11Alive weekdays at 2 p.m.
