We live in a 2 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath townhouse apartment. We have a 6 year old son, and a 15 month old daughter. Our living room has turned into a toy room! And I have a lot of pictures that I love.... but when I start to hang them up, I feel like I want them all up, but I don't want to look like a "clutter bug". How can I modernize my apartment, and make it look like it's not a daycare, but still have my daughters toys where she can get to them, and still be able to decorate without it looking like I have too much stuff? We are on a tight budget, and the only thing I have done so far is buy a "9 cube storage cabinet". And we still have toys that are too big to fit in storage bins. And the baby still sleeps in our room, so I don't want my bedroom turned into a play room.... nor do I have space in there. PLEASE HELP!Answer Question
I live in a 3 bedroom, 2 bath condo and I have the same problem. My main thing this week is to declutter my house- one room at a time. A few months ago, my husband got tired of having toys all over our living room floor, so we designated a place just for our son's toys in the living room. He has a small corner that has a book shelf with books, his fish and frogs, and the bottom shelf has his big toy trucks. He also has a soft chair to sit in and read. Next to his chair is a bug bucket of toys. He can play in the middle of the livingroom with his toys as long as he picks them up after he is finished. He also has about 20 games that we keep in a cabinet in the entertainment center. He is only allowed to have 1 game out at a time. So far, this is working. Now, we are working on the rest of the house and implementing those rules too.
