Mission Organization

I have been on a bit of an organization kick.

See we live in a 1,200 square foot 1954 "ranch" house. 3 bedrooms, one bath. We are cozy to say the least.

I mean, I have to share one bathroom with my husband folks!

Needless to say, things get piled and shoved around until I can't take it anymore and i do something about it.

First I attacked the Living Room Play Room. I went to Target and bought 2 pop up laundry baskets to sort toys. One has little toys, one has the bigger ones.
This makes cleaning up at night so much faster. Plus as we teach him to sort and put things away I can feel like I am super mom for thinking up a learning game!

Then I designated another basket for stuff that has parts that need to stay together, like his wooden puzzle train, etc.
I also chose another shelf for his books. Granted all he wants to do right now is pull them all off the shelf, but at least when he is in bed it looks like I deliberately put the books there.
Now let's ignore the fingerprints on the glass door...

Now onto the 3rd bedroom in our house which is a dual function Guest Room and Office. I have been drooling over the Pottery Barn Office System for YEARS. Finally I just splurged and ordered it. Now above the desk is a mini command center that will hopefully help keep junk off the desk itself.

Have you been organizing lately? Any big projects?

Last week I did organize all the kitchen and living room. But now it's a mess again.

We've been working on a massive reorg. I finished renovating the basement in December, and we've been going through all of our stuff and getting rid of things we just don't need to keep. So far we've tossed or donated about 1/2 the stuff that was down there. Still organizing, still stuff to go through, but it will be amazing when it's all put away.

I love the office organisation system. It looks like it would help a lot. :)
