Yes-Spring...which inevitably makes you think of Spring Cleaning at some point...no matter how long we want to put it off-it has to be done..at least at my house. I'm still not feeling the best-but with the sun shining more-it just puts that itch in me to organize better and declutter. Ofcourse finding out we are going to be having daughter #4--Yes we are having a baby girl!!- has brought us full circle to the question "where are we going to put four girls?" If baby had been a boy -than it would have shared a room with Trevor and the 3 girls would remain sharing. Now that there will be a 4th and I don't see us moving any time soon...we are having to do some rearranging...we will transform our Bonus Room into the Master Bedroom and make the Master bedroom our 4th bedroom..hence 2 girls in each room and Trevor with his own. SO no more playroom/computer room...we have to now get rid of alot of toys and narrow them down to what I feel is appropriate to have in a bedroom. I have loved having a bonus room because I could keep all toys out of the bedroom-hence less distraction to keep kids awake and playing at night. But I am looking forward to less toys to clean up!! With 5 kids...I'm sure I will appreciate it. Heck with 4 i'd appreciate any help. Now to come up with some creative ways to store the toys my kids choose to keep. SO without further ado---here are my favorites I've found that I am loving:
Clear Drawstring Bags: kids can easily see what is in each bag!
Underbed chalkboard storage containers-so toys are labeled
Coolest thing ever: Magnetic Knife strip for toy cars-GENIUS!
I am picturing stuffed animals in these 2 and they both hang up!!
Corkboard or Magnetic strip to hang up pictures!
Another Underbed storage idea-I like this more for books/coloring books.
I love this idea for book storage-it hangs too!! Less on the floor is ideal to me!
