I’ve come a long way the last two weeks unpacking and most importantly organizing all of our “stuff”. Scott thinks I’m a wee bit over the top when it comes to organizing but I love being organized. It provides a sense of calm for me when I see things in order. Ha! I’ve been a great customer to Target, Container Store, and Bed Bath and Beyond this month, that’s for sure :).
I’ve pretty much organized every nook and cranny of the house and Scott helped organize as well (much to his dismay). He’d rather do other things which I can certainly understand.
Here is Olivia’s beginnings of her closet. My Mom and Hillary helped me out a ton by pulling all this stuff out of the boxes and lining it all up for me. Her closet is very large so there is plenty of room to grow in here. I’m very fortunate that she is pretty much set as far as clothes go. I have 0-6 months on that back wall and 6-12 months on the side wall and everything else is boxed away for now.
One of the best parts of this house is closet space and an enormous attic. We have designated a separate closet upstairs for all of Olivia’s toys so we can access them as she grows into them. This way, all toys have a place, and can be tucked away while not in use. On my to-do list is to pick up a couple more of these Itso cubes for Olivia’s toys and for her closet.
This is Avery’s closet. It’s smaller than Olivia’s but has awesome built-ins behind the closet door which makes it so easy to keep nice and neat. You can see Avery here wearing her pink tutu. As long as she is at home, she has it on.
My closet is one of the first things I organized so I could find my very “limited” amount of maternity wear. I’m loving having my own closet and plenty of shelf space for my shoes and things. However, the shelves go all the way to the ceiling at 12 feet high so I’m probably going to have to install a library ladder.
I learned how to fold my sweaters on the internet!
We have three junk drawers in our kitchen so we have to keep them in order to be able to find things:
This is another toy closet that is down stairs off of our family room. All of Avery’s toys reside here so she can pull them out and play. There still are two or three more boxes of toys in the attic that I have yet to unpack but I figured she hasn’t missed them for the last 5 months so we can pull them out a bit later.
A glimpse into my craft room space:
For my own reference, here are a few places I love to visit for organizational inspiration:
