However, I'm not one to miss a party. I might be late for a party, but miss one? No way. Wendy over at The Shabby Nest is having a Taming Kid Clutter party, and anyone with kids will be running like madwomen to see all the ideas! Now, I'm not one to claim I can write a book on how to tame clutter, but I do know this...everything must have a place!
Here are some of those "places" for my kids clutter.
Key word: BINS. Bins for everything. A bookshelf filled with bins immediately turns into a toybox for all those microscopic Polly Pocket shoes. I keep this bin organizer in our hall closet downstairs. The secret is to recycle so that the kids' favorite toys of the moment are easily accessible when they're playing.Art supplies? No problem! Stick 'em in some cute little dollar section buckets from Target and add some labels to them. It's almost fun to organize when you can make it look cute!
Believe me...without these labels, my kids would have NO idea what's in those little buckets. :)
And lastly? Kids art storage. Pick out your favorite art pieces throughout the year, and store them in a flat box in their closet.
