We have a bit of an "space-issue" here in our house. I feel like I'm constantly organizing and reorganizing closets, drawers, and cupboards. It's hard to believe that we before our lovely home here in Indy we were living in a 800 square foot brownstone in Boston that literally had no halls! It's a constant struggle/battle and little by little we are getting things under control. The latest battle area was Lo's room. As she gets older she is needing her own space more and more, but as she gets older she seems to have more and more! It was time to get things under control. I often joke that it won't be long before I see her on an episode of Hoarders...but really I'm not totally joking! How one small child can have some many small, useless things is beyond me.
Here is the situation before the intervention:
This is her desk (awesome Goodwill find that will be redone once the weather cooperates)
This is Lo in the painstaking task of deciding which things to keep and which to toss. Literally we fought over EVERY item. There was a lot of, "But it's my most favorite toy ever."
Closet organized and too small clothing removed-Check!
