It’s tough being a mom, wife, working from home and trying to keep your house organized and cleaned all the time. Let’s face it, this is reality and your house does get messy. We can’t all have our house looking like something from a catalog book, but believe me I’m wishing and hoping one day mine will.
I’ve been saying over and over again to the hubby how our household needs to get more organized with everything. I mean, we have tons of space, our basement has tons of cabinets in it so there’s no reason why we can’t get our house organized. So over the next couple of weeks I’ll be sharing with you guys some of the changes I’m going to be making around here and try to get this ordinary girl more organized.
First thing is first, the kids DVDs! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve walked into their rooms with DVDs on the floor or me step on a DVD case. So instead of throwing everything out after being fraustrated I bought a CD case that holds over 170 CD’s in it and instead took the kids DVDs out of their cases and put them in the CD Holder.
I saw this small, easy idea floating around the web on a few blogs and thought I’d do this for the kids movies and let me tell you I’ve had this done for a week and there has been a big difference. It’s been so much easier. If the kids want to watch a movie they look through the case and pick one and close up the case and that’s it. No more stepping on cases and hurting my feet! As for the cases that are empty, I was going to recycle them, but hubby told me to keep them in case we ever want to sell the DVDs at a yardsale once the kids are older. So they’re in a box in our storage room put away until then.
I know it might not be that big of deal to some people, but we are movie people, we love to buy movies all the time for the kids and for the hubby and I to watch. So this was a perfect cheap and simple way to help my family be a step closer to being more organized. Lots more to come. Have a great day today!
