Julie and I spent some time reviewing her household hotspots, and strategized on winning solutions for craft items, toys, and papers. The Taylor Gifts (also found at www.shopgetorganized.com ) kicked in $200 of organizing supplies that we carefully hand picked for her needs and growing family. After some time asking the kids to dig in, sort, and pare down toys and jumbled art supplies, Julie had a good idea of what she wanted to keep and store. Because the kids did the work, even creating labels on the computer for their toy bins, they were ready to help when I came back with the pretty new storage solutions.
Julie’s favorite was probably the very stylish woven bins to hold all the games and game controllers in the play room.
The girls all went crazy over the stick-on blackboard. Before I left we had two completely different tableaus on the wall.
We also added a 6-pocket over-door holder to act as a family in-box, perfect for this family of 6. This will hold party invitations, permission slips, incoming mail and other paper that shouldn’t end up on the counter top in a hard-working kitchen.
This was such a fun project, and I thank Julie for letting me offer some solutions to daily life. To see a video of what Julie and some of the kids think, visit the HWO FaceBook Page.
