Boys room part 2

In this blog post I will outline the things that we have done in the last few days to get my boys room organized and ready for the holidays. If you're like us with six kids in our home we tend to see a lot of pieces of toys come and go in broken bits in shreds as the children will use them throughout the year. 

As we blended are two households we didn't have nearly enough storage for all of the items that the boys had to be easily stored away so that the room could be "clean" for the days activities. Now that my boys have transitioned into a homeschooling environment it became more important that we get things down on their level and organize things so they're easy to access and play with during the day but easy to put away.

So we bought two of the Expedit Units from IKEA and assembled them. 

There really easy to put together in this is a picture of them completely assembled in with the boys things on them.

Then we have the large organizing table in the middle of the room with the play table for cars the cars fit nicely in the two drawers on either side of the table and the boys can easily clean them up when they're done. See how happy they are???!!

I'm so thankful to have been gifted the large table in the middle of the room for the present this Christmas from a friend at church. Her attic is relieved of this item, and I am sure my boys will play with it for years to come!

Let me know what strategies have worked for you and organizing your kids rooms!?? I realize it's a constant struggle, but we are getting better about keeping the room picked up and now we have some useful tools in which to keep them organized!

Thanks for reading!

Have a great day friends!
