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.

I managed to pretty  much go thru everything last year with my one drawer/shelf/etc. at a time. Got rid of a bunch but now more has come in and you can't really tell it. So I restarted it but I'm also adding in something else. Everytime something new comes in then 2 things have to go! One way or another I am going to put my house on a diet!

I am all about organization and always finding ways to organize especially with having a 10 month old daughter.
