Organizing!

I am trying to organize my house as much as I can. It is taking me forever to find a home for everything, but I am enjoying it so much. Are there any ideas or suggestion that you may have when it comes to organizing things such as kid toys, how to create a meal list, and so forth. I am pretty much up for anything at this point.

Good luck with organizing your home. I suggest reading a few books about storage and clutter clearing. I would choose how many toys each of your children is allowed. For example thirty toys, ten in the living room in a box, ten in their bedroom and ten in your attic, basement or loft. Then you can alternate the toys to make it exciting and interesting for your children. A train track with toy engines would be counted as one toy. Your children can give away one of their toys get it replaced with another toy. When sorting things start with your favorite thing first, like a book case for example. Then you will feel happy about getting rid of things you or your children don't use anymore. You could anything you don't anymore to charity. You will then have a place for everything and have everything in its place. It will make y our house easy to clean.

Those are all such great ideas. I have checked into a few books and I am reading alot now. It is fun to always have a project because there is always a way to organize. It is nice to see the different ways people do it to meet their needs. So thank you very much!

You are welcome. I am glad you have some books to read about organizing your home. I have been sorting out things in my loft today. I feel that I am doing quite well with my clutter clearing but my problem is throwing our stuff that I am emotional about like old letters or cards. Good luck.
