    Default Share your super organizational ideas!

    So if anyone read my posts in the lazy mum thread you can probably deduce that my house is a bomb! My biggest problem is lack of storage space so I have crap everywhere and I hate it.

    We'll hopefully be moving in a few months time and I'm determined not to let stuff pile up in the new place. With that in mind I would love it if any if you super organised Mum's could share your organizational hints and tips.

    I'm after any ideas for storing anything and everything in a home, from kitchen drawers to stationary to clothes to my DDs hair clips and anything in between! I guess I'm just looking for a heap of tried and tested ideas that other people use in their homes so I can pick and choose and put together a plan to organise my own home. TIA

    Check this out! I only found it the other day so haven't done any myself, but I am wanting to do the whole kitchen command centre in a cupboard thing!

    I just redid the kids drawers like so. I used to fold clothes and stack them one on top of the other. But inevitably, the kids dig through to find the one they want and leave a big mess in the process. This way you fold pants and tops in half first, then in thirds to make a neat rolled top edge. Then stack one behind the other so you can easily take the one you want out without disturbing the rest. I lined DDs up in a row of short sleeve, then long sleeve tops, then shorts and long pants. I can fit way more in her drawers doing it this way.
    It's perfect!

    I also did the same for mine and DFs underwear drawers. It's easy to maintain- you just keep folding the same way after each round of washing.

    Following this, we are about to move again and I have so much trouble keeping stuff organised and tidy!!! There's a bit more storage space in the new house, but I'd love the ideas!

    I'm hardly an OCD mum but one thing I've done that really makes a difference is store a folded doona cover & pillowcase inside another pillowcase. That way it's all there and when I change the beds, I'm not pulling the contents of the linen cupboard onto the floor while hissing 'where the f*** is the other pillowcase?'
