Organizing Kids Clothes

Organizing kids clothes can be a real hassle. They are small and tend to get lost both in the dresser and in the wash … and around the house or for that matter. Dressers are often just drawers stuffed with all sorts of things. An alternative idea is a shelf with tupperware. The tupperware can be various sizes to fit the contents (larger bin for sweatshirts and jackets, smaller bin for socks or tights, etc.). This can be a great way to keep things organized as well as introduce your little person to organizing and cleaning early!   “It’s better

Teen Bedroom Makeover

We all love a good before and after post! Here are a few fun pictures from a recent makeover. This is a teen’s girls bedroom. Our clients recently moved from Florida which is always hard on teenage children so they wanted to create a special room for her! She loves to do art, loved the idea of lights around her room, and wanted to make her bedroom feel more grown up. We collected branches from the forest, washed them and sprayed them.

Out of Space? Maybe not…

Small spaces can be cozy but frustrating if you feel like you don’t have enough room for your things. Here are a few tricks to help you maximize your space:   Put up shelves around your room close to the ceiling! Like a border, this can be beautiful and a great place for collections, books, or hats/purses. A quick little step stool can make getting those things (that shouldn’t be needed daily) easy. Turn furniture catty-corner. This can look visually interesting AND provide some much needed hidden space behind the chair, shelf, or dresser. Take a trip to the Container

Choosing What to Keep

If you are trying to get rid of things, choosing what to keep can be quite difficult. Many things have significance aside from their use. Other things you think are just cool, regardless of whether you use them. So how do you decide what to keep? Try these things: If you are trying to get rid of clothes, make a pile of the clothes you are unsure about tossing. Then try to wear them in the next week or two. If you don’t, toss it. If you do but you didn’t like it or were uncomfortable, toss it. If you do and

Your kids have toys and books and clothes and … well, things… all over the house. Lets tackle one of those problems. Books. How do your kids (and you) keep the books organized or at least not shoved, squished, and ruined?   Here are three great ideas! Have small bins for the books, rather than shelves.
