Hey everyone! This is Cheri from I Am Momma - Hear Me Roar. Emilie and I go way back....well at least to June :) We competed in SYTYC together and she made some amazing things. I am excited to be a part of this organizational series. Why? Because when I finally conquer an area of my home and fully organize it I feel like I can conquer the world.
So, I'm going to share four tips with you to help in organization. Let's hit it!
1) Containers are obviously a must. When dealing with small objects, you just need containers. It's nice to use the same ones so that the area will have some consistency. The silver bins are from Target. I found them in the dollar section, but they were $2.50 each. Not bad.
See? Yeah, I bet you have most of these random little items, too.
They are divided by catagory.
3) Find the right place. Put the things you use all the time in the most reachable area. Use bins for storage that's up high. Then the bins are like drawers and you can access things by just bringing it down, rather than climbing up high to see what exactly all the small items up there are. Try and keep dangerous things out of the reach of your little ones.
4) Once you've got your system down - USE IT! If you start to casually leave things out or stop putting them back where they go it won't take much time to be back where you started. Ugh! Not pretty.
