Yesterday I organized one closet in this house, I've got 3 more to go before baby gets here.
Today I just went through a box of clothes I had from when Allison was a baby. OMG the memories! I've sorted out the smaller stuff...not much there, but more than I thought...and washing them. I kept alot of 18 month stuff so the kid will have alot from those however they maybe the wrong season for her
Happy laundry day for me!!
The girls are going to share a room....so I went through the closet and organized all hanging clothes by size...moved Kinley's drawers to one side, and I have one for Karsyn on the other side. Then I organized all headbands/bows/socks, etc and separated which will fit which girl lol. Then I went through all of Kinley's toys and threw away anything from McDonalds, anything that was broken, old, or useless.....got like a whole bag of toys thrown away! Then I got all the baby stuff put in the crib....I sorted through newborn-3 month clothes of Kinley's and sorted them out...threw away a handful that were stained and the rest I storted to be washed and put away. I just need to vacuum the girls room and it will be totally done! Plus I've picked up the living room...need to vacuum it, put away laundry, do the dishes, clean and mop bathroom floors and clean the dining room and kitchen floors-our new dining room table is being delivered on Friday!!! Whew...I've been doing too much today-been getting BH contractions ...so right now I'm taking an hour break until I finish the rest of my cleaning!!
My project last weekend was installing a closet organizer in the nursery closet. I thought I could do it in one night and after missing parts and buying the wrong size, 2 trips to the store later and about 3 days later and it was done. DO NOT buy a ClosetMaid organizer if you want to keep your sanity! It was a pain to put together!
Thank you MeganPixel for surprising me with this super cute siggy-you rock!
We just use those cheap plastic drawers from walmart for Kinley and I got some for Karsyn too. Then I just write what is in each drawer on a pink post-it and tape it to the drawer--this helps DH know where things are! lol They are in the closet so no ones sees them and it frees up some space in her room for toys! lol Then I put nice wicker baskets under her changing table-on the shelves-with diapers in one, burp cloths in one and bibs in another! Those are three things I need easy access to!...but once Karsyn gets here I'll have to have 2 baskets for diapers! lol I'll try to post a pic later of their room...I need to get letters to spell out Karsyn, and need another crib mattress!
I did that alot with Allison to. I used the plastic drawers and seperated oneies, sleepers, bibs, etc. It made it much easier to find and put away things. I may go buy some for this one, but since she'll be in our room for so long I want the things in my room easy to get to so I may just use the drawers under her changing table. I need to go out and buy some hangers to put the hang up stuff away.
