We're getting organized!!! :)

Over the past couple weeks Nate and I have been organizing our house...and boy does it feel good!!! For all of you who know me, I am just not the organizing type. ;) ...but with Nate and help from Lexi, I think we got it figured out. Crafts in one area, puzzles/games in another, toys all separated into bins, etc., etc., etc. I LOVE IT!!! It's been so easy to pull out something specific to play with and so easy to put things away at the end of the day. if I could just find the time to finish going through my 'sort through' piles and have a yard sale to get rid of all the stuff we weeded out! ;)

In the midst of organizing we moved the girls into the same room and redid the play room (thanks Lexi!!!).

The girls asleep the first night they roomed together. :)
The 'kind of' before picture of the play room. (we had already started the process)
The finished products! :)

1st - Alyssa's closet (toys, sweaters, jackets, swimsuits, sleeping bags, etc.)
2nd - The Playroom/School-craft room
Lexi helped make sense of the room by creating different areas. She's so good!

This is the craft & school area
This is the reading area
This is the imaginative play area (kitchen, baby stuff, dress-up, etc.)

Being organized is definetly one of favourite things. Looks wonderful! Way to go (for someone who feels that they are unorganized, the rooms look amazing!)

Good job! I am sure it was a lot of work, but I bet it feels so good. I love to be organized...just not very good at it!

Mandy Kershaw said...

It is such a big undertaking to put the kids in the same room. Glad you made it through!

Cristina said...

Great work Jen, looks awesome. Are you going to be homeschooling?

Heather said...

Great job. I am so not the organizational type either, but I sure do appreciate it. Thanks for the motivation to get up and straighten up my house. We are really so much more relaxed and happy when we do this...
