Since I’ve been blessed with having two smelly -but adorable– little boys, I try to keep things as clean as I possibly can. keyword being TRY…
One of the biggest places that I feel needs to stay organized, is their bedroom. During the day I let my little ones run rampant and completely demolish any order that goes on in their room. Ya know, for “creative” purposes. But at the end of the day, I like to make sure everything gets snug and cozy right back where it belongs. It’s important to me that they have a clean room every night. If you haven’t read my post about why I make my kids clean their room every night, you can check it out here.
Part of making sure it’s easier for my kids to be able to clean their room at night is to make sure that there is proper organization and to make sure they know where everything is supposed to go at the end of the day. Here are just a few simple organization ideas that I have found to be incredibly helpful for keeping things tidy.
Seriously, there is so much potential for the space under the crib/ toddler bed. This is a spot that is often forgotten, but you’d be surprised how much you can store in a container down there. I like to use mine as a storage for diapers and wipes, but you can use the space to store practically anything.
I looked everywhere while searching for bookshelves to put in the boys room. Do you know how expensive nursery bookshelves are? It’s absolutely absurd. I thought I was a genius when I realized that I could just use spice racks instead and after reading the reviews for these Ikea spice racks, I soon found out that this is really common and plenty other people before me had the same idea. I couldn’t tell if it was one of those “great minds think alike” or if it was a “can’t believe you just barely realized this” situations. Anyway, it’s a great idea and it was much cheaper than the pricey nursery bookshelves.
This organizer is one of my favorites. This one is super cute and has a neutral chevron print on it. This hanging organizer is perfect for storing swaddle blankets, small quilts, baby towels, and crib sheets. (And maybe a stuffed animal or two) It’s easily accessible so you can just quickly grab something out when you need it without having to open any drawers or pull it down from high shelves. Love it!
These containers are a DIY, they are incredibly easy to make and you can be used to organize a bunch of small items. I use this one for binkies -obviously. By the way, don’t judge the number of binkies that I have in this container, you can never to too prepared! If you’d like the tutorial for how I made these adorable containers, you can view that post here.
So there you have it, just a few simple organization tips that have been a total lifesaver for me. I’m always up for more organization tips though. Leave me a comment and let me know ways that you like to stay organized!
