Reclaiming Our Spaces: My Son's Room

This week I worked on my son's room.  Mainly, I worked on making a home for everything.  It was becoming a big pile of toys!

It took me awhile to figure out what to buy to organize everything.  I didn't want to drop much cash because who knows what will happen to it in the next year or so.  This is a little boys room.  So, I settled on an 8 cube organizer from Closet Maid.  I found it at Target.  It was pretty inexpensive, but sturdy enough.  The openings are a good size for the Dollar Tree organizing bins I've loaded up on.

It's so much less chaotic!  And he loves it.  It's so fun to sit with him & talk about, "Where do the books go?" & "where do big cars park?"

I also pulled in the 2 storage ottomans from the living room that were already storing toys & books.

It's part of my push to get all the toys into their bedrooms and out of the living room.  They can bring them into the living room or kitchen, but then they get put back up in their rooms.  Lord willing, right?! I know they can do it!!!  Woo hoo Kiddos!

This week Holly gave a How To on organizing kids' rooms.  She went all out.  This is an amazing post.

  1. Toy clutter can make you insane can't it? I love those cube shelves! And I'm using those black ottomans in my entryway, plus one in my bedroom, plus one in my living room. They are RAD!
