Buy of the Day: January 2010

Cameron Creativity Storage System with Art Cubbies

Living in a relatively small house with two young kiddos - you have to be organized.  Whenever I need storage inspiration, I go to my friend Shelley's house.  She is the ubermom of storage and organization - with a label maker and a polaroid, her three year olds know exactly which basket or bin holds which toys which makes it easier for them to help with clean-up.  In my list of to dos for this year is really organizing life - my stuff and the kids.  My first pick - I am spending this month at Pottery Barn kids where they have a 20% storage event.  You can save on entire wall units or even just a basket or two for the bath toys that you store under the console sink or the toys you keep in the car for long rides.  Last tip - when I reorganize our toys its the perfect time to talk to my almost four year old about giving away the toys we don't use anymore to a local children's shelter in the city - a great time to introduce the concept that everyone has different means and showing that sharing is an act and not just a preschool concept.  On a less important note, but still great, it also helps her to take ownership of keeping her room and playroom organized. What are your favorite organization tips for kids rooms?
