My kids keep their baskets in their room.ImageUploadedByA Full Cup1422459634.903201.jpg

They are sterilite baskets that stack. They have them at walmart for back to school for the college dorms for like $3.50. Sometimes they have a few in the office supply row. Much less expensive than milk crates. But i can pile them on top of each other when they are all in the laundry room. And my laundry room is small. More like a very narrow hallway.

Milk crates... that's it! I have a stack of them in my basement we picked up for free of the curb the day after city wide garage sales? But mine are ugly black and red. Any ideas to make them "pretty"? I think I'm going to go with having the kids put all the clothes back to their room when they bathe whether it be them changing first (in which case I need to buy more bathrobes) or carrying it back with them after. I'll let the older ones pick which ones they want to do. I may keep baskets for the two youngest downstairs though still because it seems like I'm constantly changing them because of spills, accidents, etc.

Oh.... Also went through the bathroom cabinets yesterday and reorganized my stockpile on those shelves. Finished emptying the living room closet and tore out all the paneling. We discovered that the ceiling in the closet is actually 9 FEET! They had put in a false ceiling to cover up a vent pipe, but I think I'm going to leave it the full height so I can store more. I also have another new idea for that closet. Since I'm very short I want my husband to build a ladder directly on the wall so I can just climb up and down to get what I need instead of having to find a step stool

I searched ribbon milk crate on pinterest. There are lots of cute things. Maybe you can find something.

Awesome! Love Pinterest!

I also see ideas that combine a seat which would make them dual purpose

Lots of cute stuff. My only is advice is to not be like me. I always get carried away and don't finish my good ideas. Maybe start small and just use them. See if you like how it works before you make them pretty.

Guess who has a fully functional bathroom now with organized medicine cabinets and stuff? Me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's been an awful almost six months of living out of boxes stashed here and there while we fixed the bathroom issues but last weekend we installed the last medicine cabinet so I put everything back today. I think I have things well organized but of course the real test is how it works for us. Still, so nice to have everything in one room and put away!

I organized scrunchies today. We have scrunchies on old clip bracelets on mirror suction cups. I have a bin they go into until I put them back up.

Also cleaned hairbrushes. One task that has to be me, hair balls make DH gag.

I organized my stockpile room this past weekend. I gave a friend a bag of things that we won't eat. I had a pub height dining table in there that was just taking up space, so I took the legs off and slid it under my oldest son's bed. Now, the kids can pull it out and use it for games, puzzles, and legos.

I had the kids go through their video games and see what they could get rid of. Sold some of them today and hoping to sell the others soon. Got one scratched game repaired at a local shop. Replaced a missing game with money from little sister's piggy bank--she learned a lesson there.

I took the last of the little girl's clothing that wasn't selling online to a shop where they pay cash for used clothes, and I have some rejects to donate tomorrow.

Just a few little things, but I'm trying to keep moving forward.

Organized the freezer tonight. It is getting to the point we have to eat something from the freezer to put something else in.

Finished my garage mudroom area. Hung up the bike helmets and put my grocery bags in one crate, clothes to be used for rags in one, and cans for recycling in the last.

I've decided to declutter the bathroom, by moving the bulk of my storage to the living room closet once it's complete. Can't wait until I get to show those before and after pictures !

Went through our "computer room" last night, which is just a large area at the top of our staircase. Was able to toss a box full of miscellaneous junk and got a bag of shoes ready to donate to a local store... This is where the kids have their lego world and I really need to figure out how to keep it contained better. I still have a dresser to find a home for in this room.... and a linen closet to completely sort through. I picked up new bedsheets for everyone in the house in January while Target was had their $10/$50 coupon. I found tons of sets on Clearance so I was able to pick up 8 bed sets and a pillow for $40 something. But now I need to downsize, I'm thinking only one spare set of sheets per bed size is necessary, but how many does everyone else have?

We have 2 sets of sheets for each bed. It makes it easier to have a set to immediately remake the bed with. More than that and we donate or toss [unusable].

Depending on how many you currently have:
1) small amount - lego bin
2) medium amount - 3 drawer storage
3) large amount - tilt drawer system with see through bins that fits the small kits and pieces. The drawer system also makes for a nice platform to put the creation on top of.

I'm back down to a 3 drawer because my two youngest are not as big on lego as my older two were at that age.

I need to find a new organization system for my receipts.

I just have one set of sheets for my bed.
I relate to the fairy tale - the princess and the pea!! I got the softest mattress I could find and put a 3 inch foam topper on top of that!
My mattress is almost over 20 inches thick and it's very hard to find sheets that fit and then I have an issue with most sheets being too coarse for me. (I'm an HSP. Sucks sometimes. Lol)
I have one set that I wash and immediately put back in the bed.

finally started my recipe / meal planning / kitchen charts binder. Realized I don't really follow specific recipes - just throw things together and they work somehow. Goal is to start putting my pinterest to work and start making at least one new recipe a week

Depending on how many you currently have:
1) small amount - lego bin
2) medium amount - 3 drawer storage
3) large amount - tilt drawer system with see through bins that fits the small kits and pieces. The drawer system also makes for a nice platform to put the creation on top of.

I'm back down to a 3 drawer because my two youngest are not as big on lego as my older two were at that age.

I need to find a new organization system for my receipts.

I'm going to have to see if I can figure out something with a tilt drawer system.... They have LOTS of Legos... Meaning I could fill probably 2 5 gallon buckets up with them :O But the kids build with them and use them a lot so I won't complain. You wouldn't happen to have a picture of that would you?

I understand completely... most of my meals are just thrown together, but I don't hear too many complaints on the results Make sure you share any new recipes that are hits!
