Between You and Me

http://tarahlowry.blogspot.com/

My blog is eclectic...I love rambling about marriage, parenting, our homeschool experience, friendship, decorating on a budget, faith, and our dreams to one day live on land.

Of all the DIY projects you've done, which was your favorite?

What's your advice for moms who want to decorate their home on a budget?

Where do you find inspiration for keeping your home stylish?

How do you effectively (but stylishly) organize and store your kids' toys?

Since my kids were little ones, I've taught them to keep their toys organized in clear plastic containers in their closets. We've never had a "play room" in any of our homes, so their closets had to multi-function for us. I have always labeled each container, and it has worked beautifully for our family. Each of our children know that one of the golden rules for keeping the house organized is putting up what you aren't playing with, and all three of my kids are really good at doing their part. We keep all like items in containers together so that our nightly routine to tidy the house before bedtime is easy and painless! During the summer months, we take the time to go through all of the toys that aren't getting much attention and we decide if they are toys worth keeping and storing in the attic for future grandchildren or if they get sent to children who could enjoy them today! If there is one thing that everyone who comes into our home says about me, it's that I'm organized. I don't do it expensively but there isn't anything more stylish to me than an organized house!
