So, we’ve tapped into our obsession with bins and labels and shared how it has helped us stay organized. But, we are not stopping there, no sir. This organization train is at it’s next stop, hooks. It get’s better, we are talking personalizing everyone’s (or just the younger one’s) hooks!
It gets slightly more fun, because we personalize the hooks with pictures and a cork board where you can hang reminders or loving notes. In our experience, the younger kids love feeling a sense of ownership and will proudly hang their belongings on THEIR OWN hook. So, take a look at the hooks we made for Katie’s daughters.
So, when your family comes in from kicking the ball around outside and after they throw the ball in it’s properly labeled bin, they can hang their jackets on their very own hook. Yes, in an ideal world the scenario would happen just like this, we know. But, we also know from experience that if we put forth all our simple organizational tools in our repertoire then we are so many steps closer to a smooth daily routine and happy home. It works. We are here to spread the word.
