This is for all the people like me who hate to throw away things or even get rid of something useful. I was wondering what I could do with our school craft supplies and an idea hit me. Use an old Diaper bag. It's compartments are perfect to hold our glue, markers, scissors etc. I have one that is similar to a laptop bag and I put our folders in the center that hold our work along with the box of crayons. The glue, scissors and markers are on the side. Perfect! Now when I have "school" with the boys I grab my diaper bag and the accordion file that holds our construction paper, stickers, etc. and bring it to the table! This works great for me. I think the most exciting part was that I used something that I thought was unusable unless we have another baby and I never liked this diaper bag because it's too big and bulky. I am always in search of ways to simplify and organize our home and life to make things go easier. This does not come naturally but I love the result. Don't forget to check out my family friendly blogroll. Their are alot of great blog reads. The Org. junkie is very inspiring. I actually used her idea of using baskets in my junk drawer in the kitchen. Now the drawer opens up nicely and I can find everything.
Here's to your organization efforts!
