Yesterday the guest speaker at the American Women’s Club of Dublin monthly meeting was Sarah from OrganisedChaos.ie.
I also bought a green plastic box to put under my kitchen sink to hold all the bottles. I’m not sure it’s the best solution but for now it works. I can always use that box elsewhere.
As I have less than a dozen handbags and they are all empty and sitting in my drawer, I will skip that one and tackle this damn messy playroom. While she said remove everything and sort into piles then put back, I physically couldn’t do that – so I improvised a bit. I have three boxes heading to the charity shop, [big box of wooden trains which will go into the loft], one big box out in the trash and still have tons of toys left – will have to be sorted again. Perhaps 1/2 of these “good, current toys” will go upstairs and every few months swap them – it works for some friends.
On Monday, I’m popping back to IKEA to pick up an two, white Kallax 2×2 shelves – using my voucher from our Christmas Tree to pay part of it.
It was like this…
and after a few hours of sorting, tossing, donating, vacuuming and re-arranging….
we have a floor. Still more to go but at least it is manageable.
Here is the updated playroom with all toys in their places – let’s see how long this lasts. Also, I will get rid of some toys again but for now, Maebh and Soren both want to keep these.
