To conquer the kid piles – organizing the items that get thrown in mom's room.

I don’t know about the rest of you but mom’s office and mom and dad’s bedroom seem to be the place that most items are thrown when a kid is “cleaning” up. I have been getting really tired of picking up scout clothes and the kids not being able to find their dance shoes when they need to… or even my photo props not being in the right place when I need them.  Having 7 little “helpers” (and I do use that lightly) sometimes makes for 7 little tornadoes in my house.

Now, the labels are sure NOT to come off either. Vinyl is a wonderful and magical thing. I picked up some permanent outdoor vinyl (and some wall vinyl on a different day) from Pick You Plum. LOVE THAT DAILY DEAL SITE.

In my goal to conquer the kid clutter, I have in fact, found a solution in my house to make getting ready for activities faster because I am not wasting time to find that neckerchief for one of the many scouts that I do have! And as you can see, bathing suits got a box as well… SO MUCH EASIER to get the 4 littles into their suits and everyone can find them, because mom stashed them!!
