Family Closet UPDATE!

If you missed our blog on our new Family Closet, go here and catch up ;)

Now that you know about our weekend project, the family closet we can go on. It has been almost 2 weeks and so far i am loving our new set up. And i actually just today finished organizing the kid's bedrooms since we now have more space to work with!

The laundry that holds down the couch is rarely there, and the hangers arent getting out of control around the house...yet! We have a pretty good system on getting ready for bed. And going up/downs stairs for your outfits is not a bad thing ;) Move it Move it MOVE IT! I actually enjoy folding/hanging laundry since i know i can hang it up and it will look at nice and neat once again! I am acutally doing laundry more consistantly and havent had the dreaded PILE up after a week or so!

Now onto the childrens rooms! Cullen and Myra share a room and they both are in cribs. We also have a changing table and used to have 2 dressers (can you say cramped!). Now the room is much more open and less "stuff" in there.  I am using the closet to hang up clothes the children (all) will grow into this summer. I will rotate down into the family closet once they fit. I also have 4 sterilite totes that the stuff they grow OUT of can go into. So we can pass down to the next sibling.

And just because she is so cute, miss Myra supposed to be asleep in her crib (yeah right! she never takes naps, just plays for 2 hrs in there!)

And onto the Big Kid's room! They have a nice bunkbed set that we got from WALMART, cheapest i could find and such a great price! Love it, sturdy and looks nice too. We kept the dresser in this room since it is such a nice dresser. Everyones pajama's go in this dresser. I think i have a drawer just for superhero gear too....HEY! i am the mom of superman/green lantern/Batman/Spiderman and even Wonderwoman. So they need their space too! Anyways this opened up a bunch of space in Chloie's closet! I put all the bags/blankets and extra sheets in those handy totes uptop. Thank you Micheals 70% off clearance! It just looks better when its organized i think! I moved their bookself into the closet to open up the room more. Also in the closet is her barbie doll house and barbie toys. I dont allow those in the playroom since they have small peices. All other toys are in our lovely playroom!

And there you have it! Our end result! I love it and hope the kids and I can keep up our great work on being organized and clutter free! I cannot wait until our mega garage sale this spring!!!!!!!!

I am loving how it is so far, thats not to say things cant change...if i find a way to make things easier...i am going to go for it! It works great for now! Thanks Z for supporting my crazy ideas!
