Since begining to work my house like a big mess. So I went out and bought those small clear drawers to keep toys/coloring book/puzzles in. Hopefully it will stay organized. I'm not 1/2 done and I've been working all day.

How do you guys keep organized?

Have a place for everything, like you said. I have those big shelves with the pull out bins for all the toys and crafts and stuff, and my kids are really good about knowing to put stuff away before they get more out.

Constant battle. Don't bring something in the house if there is no place for it. As soon as it doesn't fit, wears out or if you are style conscious, is so last season, give it away, resell it. Check out flylady.com. 15 min a day to clean and Organized

LIke another person said, it's a constant battle here.  Not so much with myself, but with my kids.

Yep without kids my house would be neat as a pin but not much fun.

 I have one of these. It's a princess one. I paid good money for it too. My daughter just empties her toys out and flips the containers upside down and uses them as step stones... Rotten plain rotten. So I took half of her toys away... I don't think she even noticed or cared.

 For me, it's easy getting rid of my unwanted stuff. But for my dd it seems like everything has a memory. I donated/thrown away a lot so far today. I think there maybe another trip to goodwill in the future. Our dd doesn't even miss it. Just showed us she had too much. Hopefully the these clear totes with help us. I will check out flylady thank you.
