Are you ready for week 4 of our organizing challenge? This is the last challenge week. Our challenge this week is the Living room, Family room, Play room.  This is the room where family’s spend a lot of time watching movies, playing games, or just hanging out together. These are rooms I consider vital for organization or they can quickly become cluttered and messy. I like to use a lot of dual purpose furniture in these areas especially since my rooms aren’t very large.


I found this little table at a thrift store for $6 and painted it blue to add color to this area of the room. The little drawer holds coasters. I use baskets in the TV stand to hold video games. And the Chinese chest holds CD’s.

The rattan basket holds blankets to use while watching TV. I like having a storage ottoman instead of a table to hide all the video game supplies. I use a tray placed on top for a flat surface so we can still place things on it.

We have a loft area upstairs, between 2 of the bedrooms, where the kids can hang out, read, work on the computer, or watch TV. We also have overnight guests there sometimes.

The dresser is perfect for holding bedding for guests and there’s also a few empty drawers for their personal items. The futon folds down to a bed and also has drawers underneath for bedding and other items.

$101 Scentsy Gift Pack

Scentsy started in 2005 after two busy moms presented an idea for a safer and healthier alternative to traditional wick and fire candles. Scentsy wants to help you warm the heart, enliven the senses, and inspire the soul. Currently Scentsy offers wax bars in over 80 different fragrances and over 75 different warmers in three different sizes. Scentsy has a patented technology that uses a low watt light bulb to warm a wax with a low melting temperature. This ensures lower temperatures to avoid burns and no open flames to avoid fire risks. As well, there are no toxins being released into the air, thus a safer and healthier way to make your house smell wonderful! Scentsy also offers a lot more than just warmers and wax though! Scentsy also has room sprays, scent circles, travel tins, buddies & baby buddies for the little ones in your life, and scent paks. On top of that Scentsy also has a layers line that includes great products like shower gel and cream and bath tablets, body butter and body lotion, body spray and solid perfume, dryer disks and wash whiffs, and hand soaps and hand creams.
