Apartment Guide “Holiday Home Organization” Blogger Challenge and $100 AmEx Gift Card Giveaway

One of the first things I like to do at the beginning of the holiday season is get my kids rooms organized. It’s easy to convince them that it’s to make room for all the new toys they’ll be getting for Christmas. It’s also a great time to donate to local charities and toss out those broken or worn out toys while you’re at it.

I find bins are much more convenient to store toys and easier to clean up after than a toy box. Toys can be sorted and stored in categories. My kids are more likely to put things where they go if I label them too. I love using chalkboard tags so I can change them if the contents change. And they’re so easy to make using chipboard and chalkboard spray paint.

I have a secret in my closet. I have baskets and bins that my kids think store my things, but actually they store birthday and Christmas gifts until they can be wrapped. The kids are so used to seeing them in my closet that they don’t even think to look inside. Sometimes it’s easy to hide things in plain sight.

Speaking of Christmas, I store my Christmas decorations in totes in the storage area under the front porch. I try to stack them with what I’ll need first on top.

And, of course I label all the totes so I know what contents are inside. My label maker is one of my favorite tools.

And since we’re working on getting my craft room finished I have to show you some storage for my craft supplies. I’ve temporarily moved my craft supplies to another room while the craft room is being finished.

But it’s important for me to keep it organized especially this time of year. Since I make a lot of  the gifts I give I need to be able to have a functional work area.

I can’t wait to be able to show you all my inexpensive storage ideas in my craft room. Just a few more weeks.

If you need more storage ideas Apartment Guide has tips on how to organize and maximize your home whether you are in a large or small space. It’s helpful information no matter where you live. We could all use more clever ideas and tips on organization.
