Toy Closet Re-do, Check this out!

Four months ago I declared that my children's toy closet was a diseaster. It was so un-organized when I first posted the picture back in April that I had physical reaction to the mess. It got worse, if you can imagine such a thing. It was so bad, that we couldn't close the door anymore and when the kids went in there to get something, I stopped what I was doing to listen for the crash and the dreaded "MOM!" To avoid further injury, I decided to clean that death-trap of a closet out.


When completed, we had 2 tall kitchen bags of garbage and 4 boxes of toys that we are going to put in a garage sale this weekend. Because garage sales occur so flippin' early, I am not a fan of getting up early on the weekends I don't "do" garage sales, I "do" Craig's List instead or make donations! I am curious to see what kind of turn out we have because I promised the kids NEW toys with some of the money we make. Bribery does work when organizing a toy closet with your kids. Once they knew they could buy MORE toys, they allowed me to put a lot more stuff aside for the garage sale! Of course with visions of new Transformers and American Girl Doll clothes dancing around in their heads!

Tip of the Week:

Remember that organizing doesn't have to be painful or expensive, you may even make a few bucks on the deal if you decide to have a garage sale after you declutter!

.... Life is Simply Amazing with a little Organizing!
