Simple Mom is hosting a Spring Cleaning/Organization event this month called Project Simplify and this week’s project is kids’ stuff. I didn’t tackle all of their stuff (clothes, toys, shoes, art supplies, books, etc.), but decided to focus on giving their rooms a good cleaning and going through the stuff in their closets. Two challenges we are facing lately with their stuff are:
- They just have too much stuff (clothes and toys alike).
- I have given them too much access to all their stuff at a young age.
The books look like this most of the time. I realize they are pretty young to set all the books upright. The bags on the wall are for their dress up time that they love and do often. I actually meant to hang that in the closet but just made a mistake in telling Dee where to put it. I want to move it, but don’t want to deal with patching holes in the wall.
I’m thinking about a couple options for the books. I could either get baskets for the books to go in that would look a lot nicer. The other thing I’ve thought about doing is hanging shelves on the wall for baskets of books where they can only get down one basket of at a time. What do you think would work best?
