Organizing Kids ClutterKids today do much more in their rooms than just sleep. They go to their rooms to play, to enjoy company with friends, to read books, to do homework, and to simply hide from the world. A child’s room is often a multi-tasking room, which means it is a space that requires efficient organization or else it ultimately becomes a cluttered mess. What with toys and books and little people with messy habits, our kids’ rooms are often the biggest challenges to organize and then keep organized.

Professional Organizer Secrets

Professional Organizers Secrets 1
I was recently invited by a producer at KUTV channel 2 to appear as the organizing expert on the Fresh Living morning show. I was all ready to go when the weather decided to throw me a curve ball. It snowed all night the night before and made the roads very dangerous. I had to call the producer and tell her I could not make the 45 minute drive due to safety concerns. The TV segment objective was to help viewers understand how to better meet their New Year’s resolutions to organize their homes. I was disappointed I could not make the segment taping, but all is not lost. If you are interested in learning how to get organized this year, please join me at the following classes. They are free to the public:

The TV segment objective was to help their viewers understand how to organize their homes in preparation for the upcoming winter months. I chose to focus on three areas of interest:

  1. Groom the Garage
  2. Swap-Out Clothing
  3. Create an Organized Entry Closet

I promised the show’s viewers a list of the all products I used as winter organizing storage solutions on the show.  Every one of these great products came from my local LOWES store. Read on to watch the video and find the products I recommended with buying links for each.

Keep a Bedroom Tidy

keep a bedroom tidy4 Quick Tips to Keep a Bedroom Tidy Once It’s Organized

As you decluttered and then organized your child’s bedroom initially, you focused on less-is-more and understood that every item in your child’s room should have a designated home. You used bookshelves, clear containers, baskets, and under-the-bed storage bins to help your child understand that every item in their room had a GOOD designated landing place. You were sure to include your children when you were de-cluttering their rooms because you knew they needed to participate in the process or else they may never develop the skills necessary to tackle their messy rooms and organize them successfully. Now that that is done, you need to do a few other things to make sure the bedroom stays in good working order:
