Sunday Snapshot: {Getting Organized}

I've been busy since the girls went back to preschool, getting their room organized again. I'm sure you know the drill...find places for the new toys, figure out what needs to be passed along to little brother and what needs to be put away for garage sale or give away... And since I knew the room wouldn't stay this way for very long, I decided a little photographic evidence was in order.

Toy and Book Shelf: I was so glad I was able to clear enough space to put those pink dollhouses on the shelf. They got those for LAST Christmas (2009) and have been stored under their beds until now.

I use quite a bit of under bed storage. One is an underbed box on rollers with the lid off...Great for holding irregularly shaped toys and those things you just aren't sure where to put. Each girl has a smaller box with her dress-up clothes, and each bed has a box with bed linens. Their doll strollers and stick horses also are stored under the beds.

This is the art supply storage area. It is in their closet and has the art supplies they can access anytime.

And, finally, on the top shelf of the closet are the art and craft supplies that require adult supervision.

This isn't everything, but these are the areas where the changes are most obvious. They also have one set of storage bins on the opposite side of the room from the shelves and another smaller set in their closet.

I'm just thankful to be done, and now, hopefully, I can finish the rest of the house.

Ni Hao Y'all


  1. Wow. It looks just about perfect. Our toy bins and closets are insane. I should make that a resolution. Maybe 2012 : )

  2. You look organized and ready to take on the next project. Great job.
    Have a great Sunday

  3. Very nice and cute!

  4. Now I want to see a 'before' shot!
    You did a great job... makes me want to get to work on some closets ;)
    Happy Sunday!

  5. GREAT job!! I use the same type of things for under the bed to store all those goodies. I'm in the same kind of mood to clean up, clean out, get organized. Am I nesting?? LOL!! Whatever it is, it feels good and I want to get it done SOON! It won't fully get there until Jen's wedding, but we ARE getting there.

  6. I am so stinkin' jealous! It looks wonderful! I wanna be motivated enough to get to my boy's closet. It's scary in there.
