  • My sister's idea of creative organizing is called a garbage can. She's so mean! I'm a pack rat and have very little storage space. I went to her for help and she said throw it all away. How cruel is that? I used to watch tv and watched those programs on living in small spaces, etc. One I liked was a real garbage can, plastic, was filled with whatever you wanted to store then put a flat lid on top and table cloth. I thought that was brilliant. They do have some cute pop up toy storage thingeys that I bought for my grandkids a while back. They fold flat when not in use. I used milk crates as cubby holes for clothes. They were always climbing dresser drawers and breaking the fronts off so I quit buying dressers and just used these stackable crates turned on the side to make these great cubby holes. There are also under the bed storage bins.

  • try under the bed storage (totes work well for this). shelving. baskets for toys. Bench seating with storage compartment. Tables with storage.. (coffee table with doors, lids, or pull outs, side tables with storage, etc). Biggest thing.. just look at everything piece of furniture in the room.. if itcan't be used to help with storage, then try to find a similar piece that is.

  • I love those Wall cubes that you slide the bins in...we use those alot. I put all of my DS "medical/first aid" stuff (baby tylenol, bulb syringe, band-aids, etc) in old wipes containers...shelving for the closet (if they have one)
    We had the same problem...I used the plastic drawer things in his closet for clothes that were out of season and then just kept his seasonally appropriate clothes out at a time...

  • i would get some BIG plastic drawers.. they're all different sizes. Take a picture, and pretty much label the drawers.
