A Place for Everything… {Favorite Things Friday}

… 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.

These (below) are from Target.  Again, can’t pass up baskets and bins… and with labels too? Yes.  Anything to organize my cute-little-kiddie-life.

Craft organization
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!
