Beautiful Office Space

When you work from home, making your space beautiful and funcitonal can be difficult. The only way to make this happen is to assess what you personally need to make it work.
Tip 1: Utilize the space and furniture you have, add drawer organizers, bins and boxes.
Tip 2: When and if you need to purchase more furniture pieces make sure you get something specifically for what you are needing. 
Tip 3: Don't over think it. Make it functional and put everything in a place and keep it there.

Kids Closet/ Toy Storage

     Who out there has to use their kids closet as a toy storage as well? For Emily we really needed to create some kind of sanity in this space so her littles could utilize both their toys and their clothes and shoes etc. 

Tip 1: Put clothes together according to what they are, such as tanks, long t-shirts, sweatshirts etc.
Tip 2: When you have deep shelves use deep bins, but make sure they are labeled.
Tip 3: Make things accessible, not hard to get too.
Tip 4: Put toys in clear bins so it is easy for your children to see.
Tip 5: Utilize your space correctly, as seen below, we used nails on that long empty wall to hang hats on and got a great inexpensive shoe holder for under the clothes. Once again easy access but put away!
    Make sure when you organize you do it in a way that is most helpful for you! Use my tips but use them in a way that you will keep put together! Some have asked about how littles can get to the books when they are so high? Those are the extra books and than there is a few next to their bed for bedtime stories.. just keeps them put away.
