6 Sure Fire Ways We Keep Organized With Kids in the new house

Can you breathe easier when things are clutter-free?  Organization does wonders for the body, mind and spirit.  But what nobody tells you when you have kids is that clutter becomes a battle for the next 18 years.  All the baby gear, toys, school supplies, clothes, shoes . . . legos.  Did you ever think your arch enemy would be a tiny piece of plastic?

We recently built a house and the clean slate gave me the opportunity to rethink the ways in which we organize.   I looked at where our messes tend to be, where we need a plan and how I was going to implement one . . . or several.

I started from scratch and asked these questions:  

  • What are the biggest categories of our clutter?
  • What rooms tend to be cluttered most frequently?
  • What drives me crazy about clutter?
  • Are there dedicated places for things?
  • Have I made things easy to put away?
