Tips to Organize a Kid’s Play Room

barbie

 

If you have kids, you understand that sometimes trying to clean up after them is like shoveling during a blizzard, or washing the car when you live on a gravel road. There are some really simple methods to organizing their play space that don’t have to take a lot of time, energy, or money.

For example, you can hang a simple over-the-door shoe rack on the back of a girl’s room or toy room and use it to hold and store Barbie dolls. This is much more fun for them to use than a tote or basket. You can also hang one in a boy’s room or toy room and they can use it to put their cars away in. It can even be made into a fun game for you to play together!

What other ideas for kids’ rooms organization do you have? I can’t wait to hear!

Storage Basket for…Anywhere Really!

I feel like I am always looking for new and improved ways to add storage almost anywhere and everywhere in my home. The places that need it the most? That would be the garage, the basement, the toy room, the bathroom..oh where to begin!

I came across this over the door storage basket and I can think of SO many different places in my home that this would fit perfectly. I’m going to order one and put it in the bathroom. If it goes well in there, I might try another one on the back of the door in our walk in closet (a basket for scarves, a basket for belts, etc!)

This product takes organization to a whole new level.

Tool chest

I’m one of those people who only has enough tools to do small jobs around the house. I would love to own something like this tool chest to house more tools, but honestly, I’m not enough of a handyman to make this worth my while. That’s not to say this is not a quality piece of equipment. It’s sturdy, and it’s from Craftsman, a name synonymous with tools.

Western Digital My Book Essential Edition 750 GB USB 2.0 External Hard Drive WDH1U7500N

western-digital-driveMy husband has an old computer. He has always been involved in photography but he has recently gotten very involved in digital photography. And it didn’t take long for him to run out of room on his hard drive. Since he was still happy with his computer, and didn’t really want to replace his hard drive, he decided to buy an external drive.

He’s been very happy with this drive. He keeps all of his applications on the computer’s hard drive and his data files on the external drive. When we travel, he takes his hard drive and I take my laptop. When he downloads pictures from his camera, he puts them right onto the external drive. When we get home, they are all ready for him to access through his desktop computer.

A few years ago, Ziploc introduced their Big Bags in three sizes and I was so excited! The largest was about 2 feet wide and 3 feet tall. I quickly realized the down side was that I couldn’t stack these bags very well.

Not the case with these Ziploc Flexible Totes! They’re flexible, heavy-duty plastic and have easy to close zippers and they stack nicely! They come in two sizes: a 10-gallon XL bag and a 22-gallon XXL bag.
