Well, I have finally bit the bullet. My baby is a baby no more, she is a 2 1/2 year old, a very tall 2 1/2 year old. Who still happens to be in her crib.
But no more.
As of this week, I’m fixing to have all big kids, two rooms with two sets of bunk beds, and a PLAYROOM. I have to say, the fact that I am saying goodbye to our crib does make me a little sad. But, that sadness is quickly replaced by the fact that we now have an extra room to store all these toys.
Toys for 4 children-there are a lot. I purge them often, we try not to hoard, and if we haven’t used it in a while or it’s broken, it is leaving us. But the fact that we have 4 little people means we will have a large amount of toys.
A playroom to store everything (well except the never ending amount of Legos that will forever reside in the basement) is making my heart so happy.
For the next few weeks I’ll be doing a series on organizing. (Ya’ll someone today at the store said, “For organized people like you,” I almost fell out! I just happened to actually have my own bags and sort my groceries according to cold or not. I will take it.) Each week I’ll be focusing on the different aspects of organizing. Most of these you can apply to all rooms. This week, I’m giving you
The Best of Organizing a Playroom
From coolcreativity. Hanging buckets from wall hooks. Ingenious. The kids can see what’s inside. Plus, I love the different colors. Easy way to sort toys.
From brepea. Shopkins organizintion. My girls are gust getting into this. And they love Shopkins. The one thing about them, they are so tiny and it seems impossible to organize them. But no more!
From the sweetestdigs. This one is in the running. I love making use of all the space, including using the ceiling. However, I’m debating this because, well, I know my children. This could become a trapeze. Don’t laugh. I’d say it’s a 100% possibility that this would occur .
I found this on buzzfeed. This is going to have to be a reality. We are still going to use the playroom closet for clothes storage. It’s just a must in older houses. The closet both girls will be sharing is pretty tiny. A closet that is multi-purposed…YES PLEASE!
The Playroom has hardwoods. I love the idea of storage on rollers. Pretty cool. However, i can see the misuse of these as well. Hmmm. I found this at futurearchitecture.
From ebaumsworld, this is a must. This has the hubs written all over it. The amount of Nerf guns we have, is well, overwhelming.
From The Budget Decorator, this bookshelf is so fun plus so cheap. I could give each kid a color and let them paint away. Yes, I can see this happening.
I know I’m going to need this from homesimplyorganized. Go to her blog and you can print this diagram out! I love how it’s a simple visual. Moving toys into the playroom means that I get to do one of my favorite things: PURGE!!!!!!! I’m excited about it now. Is that strange? When did I get excited about purging and cleaning? Oh dear, someone quick, get me Blizzard so I can really have something to be excited about.
I’ve got my eye on a few things from Amazon (These are affiliate links. Click here for my full disclosure.)
Alright, these are my top pics. I would love to hear from you. Do you have a playroom and if so, what are some pointers you have for organizing? I need all the help I can get 🙂 Make sure and follow me on Pinterest to get more cool ideas 🙂
