… and everything in it’s place.
If there’s one thing that makes me happy, it’s a beautifully organized drawer, or closet, or garage, or… everything.
With 3 small kiddos, I feel like it’s a necessity to have systems for all the things. Here are a few of my favorite ways of keeping our family sane, organized and not yelling at each other when we get to the restaurant parking lot and realize that our 2-year old has no shoes on.
These hanging cups:
Find them on the web link, or I found mine at Ikea. When kids are big enough to get their own water, these are a lifesaver. Fill, drink, hang. Dishwasher every so often. Done.
Mudroom essential: Hooks for backpacks & jackets.
I got these at World Market, but you can find hooks to suit your style almost anywhere.
Playroom/Kid room baskets & containers
Okay, so if I could put one thing on the very top top of my list, it would be baskets. 🙂
These are from the Dollar Tree – my favorite place to find organizational stuff for toys. $1, tie on some chalkboards and voila! Dollar stores also make it easy to change your style and colors easily and on the cheap.
I have a mess of crafts. And again, I’m cheap. So empty pickle jars are my favorite thing for storing craft supplies. I use pegboard for the area above my desk – buckets are from the Target dollar aisle.
So there’s the glimpse into the trying-to-stay-organized life at our house. I love being able to pick up an item, know where it belongs, and put it there. Favorite!
