Finding Proper Places for Things

Since we moved into this house, I've been struggling to find places to put all my junk. I know I have too much stuff, but weeding through it is easier said than done. In addition, there are a lot of things I know I want to keep. However, this house has very little storage and there's only so many things I feel comfortable with storing in the garage. This weekend we're getting another storage tote to finish putting christmas stuff away (yes, I know it's June, just don't look in my dining room). I also found a box of my old flight attendant uniforms that I guess I want to hold onto, but the best way I can think of to store them is with space bags so I have to order a couple of those.

Also, my camera charger is lost AGAIN so I'm delaying some of my posts until I can get my camera charged again. Take a guess what other object doesn't have an appropriate place for it and all of it's accessories/boxes. That's right the camera. If it did have a normal storage spot perhaps I wouldn't keep losing the charger. The good news is we've been working on getting the house organized so it shouldn't be long until everything has a proper place. Now getting the monkeys (including Dadda monkey) to put everything where it belongs is a whole other task.


  1. Have you been to the Container Store? Its across from the North Star Mall. It has a container for everything!

  2. I love going to the Container Store, but I find them to be a little overpriced on some things. It is a good place for ideas and unique items though. We went to Walmart and bought a couple totes for old work items I have. They had 4th of July totes, but only blue and white so I couldn't get a red one for my christmas stuff. We're trying Lowe's next. The other piece I like for the kids stuff is at Pottery Barn, but I found CSN has a babyletto piece that's similar and cheaper.

  4. A cute idea I found on a blog was wrapping diaper boxes in cute wrapping paper. It makes for a very cheap toy box and looks a bit more done up then just a cardboard box.


I appreciate your feedback!
