One major thing that I often overlook in my home is the 'little' *wink* clutter spots throughout my house. I like to think their not there until I need to find something in the morning before school or when I'm trying to make it to church on time. During those frustrating moments I tell myself that I will get to that clutter spot soon. However, I usually don’t do anything about it (please tell me I’m not the only one).
Week 3 of ‘Making our homes a Haven’ has busted me out about clutter and I finally did something about one needed area.
One clutter issue is in little boy’s room. He has toys that are suppose to be in certain totes and bins but, after playing he forgets which toys go where and the toys end up just being put everywhere. I think I've found a solution that will help him keep everything organized.
I took pictures of little boy with the toys and pictures of the toys in the correct bins and placed them on the bins.
Little guy has lots of dress up clothes (batman costume, fireman etc) so I had him put on some of these clothes and took a picture of him. I put this picture on one side of the bin and on the other side of the bin I put a picture of the top of the bin which showed the dress up clothes.
I took a picture of little guy playing with his instruments and placed it on one side of the bins and placed a picture of the musical instruments in the bin on the other side.
I did this also for his little cars, his stuffed animals and his footballs/bouncy balls.
Something I did to ensure the safety of the pictures was to put them in protective covering. I only had sheet long coverings so I just cut them size.
Hope this helps with the clutter issues in his room… now to conquer the rest!
What do you ladies do to help with the clutter of toys and keeping them organized?
Sorry about the images... I have to cover little guys face right now due to legal issues :/ I wish you could see this little cutie
