I have 2 girls ages 19 months and 3 months. My dh, daughters, and i live in a q bedroom house. We have a very big laundry/storage area so we put the girls in there. However, as they get older they keep getting more stuff lol. How do I fit everything in my house?? We are so packed in here I'm a loss of what to do....help!

How many bedrooms is your house? It says "q" so Im not sure if that was a typo. Can you do wall shelving or hanging storage for their toys?

Can you set up the living room, rearranging furniture, where part of it is a play room?

If its 1 bedroom that's not even legal.
You need a bigger place, ASAP.

For toy storage, I love the shelving units with canvas bins from Target. They are awesome

 Im confused about the q. I have one ds and we only have a 2 bedroom place so we dont have a lot of space either. Pare down the toys is all I know. Or put a toy corner in the living room so that they have a little more room in their bedrooms.

I'm pretty sure that's only true if it is foster children.

Not illegal, but a landlord can make the decision whether or not to accept a familly of 3...

It IS in many states.
I work for a property management firm.
The law here is 2 heartbeats per Bedroom.
So a family of 4 would have to rent a 2 bedroom.
No decent landlord would allow 4 people in a 1 bedroom.
