As a follow up to last week’s post, Space Savers for Children’s Rooms, the tips and ideas suggested in Organizing Children’s Rooms found on Kay’s Country Cottage blog, are worth reading. If you’ve gone to the trouble of choosing all the right furniture and accessories for your kids’ rooms in your new home, you’ll surely want to keep their bedrooms tidy and organized. This means taking time every few months to go through each child’s room and purge, clean, reorganize, etc. Follow Kay’s advice…she offers many good ideas. Sort everything in the room. Throw away broken toys. Give toys away that are no longer played with but in good condition. Pass down clothing and shoes the child has outgrown. The list goes on.
If you take time to clear out unnecessary items occasionally, those space saving pieces of furniture and accessories that made each child’s room perfect when you moved in, will be able to better maintain order and serve their intended purposes. There is no sense in trying to maintain an orderly room if you are running out of space due to unwanted and no longer needed items. It is time to start getting organized.
