Confession: I love to organize! Don't you?! I love taking something messy and unorganized and make it lovely to look at, easy to use, and simplified. I'm constantly moving things around in the house. John is used it after 10 years of marriage. "honey, where are the napkins kept now?" He's easy going about it. I love that man!
I thought I'd take you on an organizing journey through my home.
First stop: Kids toy bins. I love them but they have become quite unruly. And with Christmas presents to now find homes for it was time to reorganize!
Here's what I started with:
Ipod blaring your favorite tunes
Dump all the toys on the floor.
Jay walked in after I emptied all the bins on the floor and asked who made the big mess! I told him that I was cleaning. He gave me a funny look and walked away. You have to make a mess to get things clean. That's how it works! =)
Here's what I ended with:
(can you see the difference? Oh, let me tell you...there is one!)
I still need to make tags for each bin but they look so much better and the boys can actually find what they are looking for. I'm a happy mommy!
Maybe this will inspire you to clean out a drawer, closet, box, bin...
My next stop is the kid's craft cabinet. *sigh*
