This post is a place for us to share advice, questions and personal stories about inexpensively organizing your home.

Here are some tips from the moms in this group:

  • Organize first, sorting out what needs to go where before you purchase bins and things for storage.
  • Check out yard sales for baskets, totes, etc., that you can use to sort and store things around the house.
  • Think outside the box - for example, using laundry baskets as toy bins can save you money as well as make organizing your home easier.
  • Watch for freebies and things you can recycle or repurpose to help with organization and storage.

To the ladies who was in to tracking roots , Lannie does this do and has a single little file box it keeps his stuff in , he also has a black pedalo he puts all out important papers in. The biggest trouble with orgazing in our house is how to I set things up neatly not that we need more storage , I have a lot  of storage places we will not use unless we buy a lot more stuff.

How does this apply to a mama who was pregnant and is nursing past one....should I just toss stuff I haven't worn?

Quoting SweetLuci:

 If you haven't worn it or used it in a year-you probably never will. Toss it.
