Here are a few tips on how to store toys if you don’t have a playroom: 1: Maximize closet space. Lots of times the bottom of a closet is wasted space and empty, so by installing a sturdy shelving unit inside the closet, you will have lots of new space for storing all of those toys and books. 2: Utilize space under beds. Purchase long and flat storage bins that can slide in and out with ease. Label them with the appropriate items inside and slide them under the bed. 3: “Toy Swapping” Choose several toys to put away for a few months (store in garage, basement, cold storage room etc.), then bring them out and take away some toys your children are tired of playing with. It’s like Christmas for the kids! They forget they have the items that were put away and have a newfound interest in them. Is saves space for Mom and Dad and sparks excitement for the kiddos…win win!

Are you like me and can’t let go of t-shirts that mean something to you? If so, turn your t-shirt memories into a quilt. I LOVE this idea!
Organize your clothes by type. Long sleeve casual, short sleeve t-shirts, blouses, sweaters etc. This makes it quick and easy to find exactly what you’re in the mood to wear for the occasion you are dressing for. 📷image via Pinterest
This is a lovely way to store cook books.

Wondering how to hang onto your child’s adorable paintings and awards without having endless papers strewn about?? Here are a few of my favorite ideas… 1: Keep each child’s keepsakes in a tote that is labeled with their name on the front and dividers inside for each school year. 2: Purchase a “school memories book” (there are many varieties on Amazon) that has built in folders for each grade and places to write all their favorite things. 3: Save the backpack your child uses for that school year and put all of their special treasures inside so they end up with 12 bags full of the best things from each school year. Depending on how much you like to save, one of these methods should work for you. Remember, you don’t need to hang onto everything! Only save the things that will mean something to you and your child long term 💕 📷:simple as that
Ahh…this is a thing of beauty, isn’t it?! The best place to find refrigerator organizers is at TJ Max. They usually have a large variety and great prices! Two of my favorites that save lots of space are: the egg bin (because I buy the extra large cartons of eggs at Costco I keep the big carton in my garage fridge and re-fill the egg bin in my kitchen 😉) and the soda dispenser (for the same reason…big 24 case in the outside fridge and re-fill as needed in the kitchen refrigerator).

I took Christmas down today. This is the first year ever that I wasn’t ready to put everything away. I think it’s because last year I did a major clean out of all of my seasonal decor. I gave everything that I didn’t absolutely love to our local thrift store. So, this Christmas, I only had my favorite items on display for the season. *A little tip if you’re taking your holiday decor down soon: We all have things like nativities that need to be put away in a box with the formed styrofoam where each piece goes in a specific slot, right? The annoying part is that you have to figure out where each piece goes. They only fit in their “assigned” spot. So…label every spot. I wrote with marker on the styrofoam the name of each piece and an arrow pointing to where it goes. Makes the big job of taking down holiday decor a little bit quicker (and less frustrating). 🎄
Perhaps the most beautiful pantry I have ever laid eyes on. Glass jars are such a practical and efficient way to store dry food items. Bonus: they look so pretty all lined up in a row. #pantryenvy . . . Design and Photo by Interiors By Studio M
A touch of pale pink for you on this day of love. Enjoy…
Aren’t these the coolest?! I wish I would have thought to make these when I had babies. Such a great tool when attempting to organize all of those darling baby clothes. You could make your own or, for $6, purchase them. Found on etsy.
I LOVE the wire baskets used here on the top shelf for all kinds of organizing. They are so cute and practical. Ideas of what to use them for: extra TP, toys, cook books, Chatbooks, art supplies, yarn, TV remotes, extra blanket, children’s books…and the list goes on. 📷:BHG

You guys! Isn’t this quaint? My favorite thing about this design is the tiny bit of greenery that balances everything out. @fancyfarmgirls …spot on!
Is anyone else getting excited for spring cleaning? I AM!! It feels so good to dig in, get organized, and deep clean when spring is rolling around. I really like the use of the more shallow bins here. These are perfect for so many items and save space as you stack them. And, as always…label everything!
Is one of your goals for 2017 to simplify? Here is some inspiration if it is… @onekingslane
Fold sheets and towels tightly to maximize space in your linen closet. I like to use dividers like the ones shown to give each item its own space. Photo: tipsaholic
Be courageous. Believe in yourself. You’ve got this. A little tidbit of advice I have needed for myself the past few weeks.
