You declutter and I’ll organize

I try to declutter, I do. It’s all but impossible when you have two young kids. And now that Christmas is just around the corner I know the influx of new toys is inevitable. Even though our home already looks like a New York toy store, people will still buy toys and Santa will still deliver.

So the plan is to try and find new ways to organize the mess… I mean… the toys my boys love so dearly that they must leave them scattered all about the house.

This idea below is one I found on Pinterest. Cheap crates have been used here as shelves. Someone simply nailed them up on a wall and like magic there is now a clever array of cubes for your storing pleasure. Brilliant.

Also pictured you will find old books used as shelves. While some people might be appalled at the idea of using books as shelves, I say if you can find an old sturdy book at a yard sale or flea market and turn it into a shelf then by all means do it. I think this is a quaint idea and while it wouldn’t help you to organize much it could get some items decluttered or off the floor and also help you with your huge book collection.

You know those mail holders you can often find in offices? Well why not pick some up at Staples or Target and use them at home? My kids have a ton of papers that I like to keep and my husband and I have papers all over the kitchen table and counter. I don’t want to throw them away and when I attempt to neatly stack them somewhere they end up all over the place by the end of week’s span. So get yourself a wall mount letter holder, they aren’t very expensive. Create a section of wall space for a couple of those and maybe a chalkboard like in the picture. There you go friends, now your papers are off the counter and table. Presto!

Last but not least, do not throw away the old cans you have from soup or chili or tomato puree! Keep them, clean them and paint them pretty colors! They are your friend and they can make delightful murals on your walls. After you have them cleaned and painted, put them on the walls and they become little holders. If put in your kids rooms they are the perfect size for scissors, crayons, or my personal favorite… little army men that I end up stepping on!

Let me know in your comments if you have any organizing and/or decluttering tips, I would love to hear them and I am sure everyone else would, too.
