Books on Hooks

Quote from post:

” I can bring down a basket at a time for them to sort through, they’ll be able to put them away and then I can just hook the basket back up on the wall! It’s been working so well for us and I love that I don’t have a massive basket of books that gets dumped out every time they want one book.”

Pallet Bookshelves

Quote from the post:

“Once I knew I was going to have a stockpile of free pallets (thank you, honey!), I then hit up Pinterest looking for ideas.  I loved the idea of adding hanging bookshelves to my son’s room since he has a severe overflow of books and has outgrown his original basket that was housing them.”

Kids Clothes Rack DIY

Quote from the post:

“Our little bungalow came with an itty bitty closet in the kids’ shared room. We’ve been able to teach them to put their folded clothes away in their dresser drawers, but button-up shirts and dresses are usually left for me to hang since they still can’t reach the rod in the closet.”

DIY Hideaway Homework Wall Desk

Quote from the post:

“My daughter’s desk area has always been a bit of a problem zone in her room.  It was always a mess.  It was also one of those areas she was “clutter blind” to.  We would tell her to clean up her room before getting more time on her phone, and the room would be spotless, but the desk was still a disaster.”

Easy LEGO Storage

Quote from the post:

“While LEGOs are one of the most awesome toys out there, they can also be a nightmare when it comes to storage and organization. The trickiest part can be the teeny tiny LEGO pieces. They easily fall to the bottom of the storage container if you store them together with larger pieces and they are easily lost too.”

Simple Sewn Hanging Bed Organizer

Quote from the post:
