Time for another guest post! Today is the “Eating an Elephant” newbie, Kristin from Everyday Organizing.
She has a super creative idea for all parents out there. They’re called “Put Away Baskets” and, quite frankly, I think it’s a genius idea. In her post she writes,
“Our main living areas are located on the first floor of our house and our bedrooms are all located on the second floor. Teddy bears, blankets, random socks, books, trucks, princess costumes and a myriad of other items come trickling down the stairs each day into the family room. As a result, not only am I picking up the house multiple times a day, I am also going up and down those darn stairs all day long putting things away. Great for the glutes, but not much fun for me.”
I’m sure you can guess what her solution to the problem is, based on the name of her post, but if you want to see the rest of the post as well as pictures to go along with it, click here.
And, as a side note to everyone reading this who either isn’t a parent or no longer has children living in your home, I challenge you to come up with a way to utilize this idea in your own home.
