Hey all, as we all konw here we all have 4 kids, my big issue at the moment is my little girls bedroom!!!! the two of them share , and even with big wardrobes there just doesnt seem to be enough storage space!!!! with xmas over and santas loot having been investigated and enjoyed , its time to start placing it in its permanent place of abode... the problem is there is no room at the inn!!!! its driving me crazy!!! i do regular clearouts and with a birthday looming this week and another loot enroute it is time to take hold!!! the options im looking at now is new beds with under storage and bed surrounds with storage plus extra chest of drawers, but in these recessionary times at the cost of 1000 euros it seems a bit extrem , expecially when they already have a beautiful room!! ive tried crates for under beds , in wardrobes etc. so does any mums out there with wonderful resourceful brains have any good tips ....?

Storage containers is basically what rubber maids are and they work wonderfully.  You can put them on the top shelf of the closet or under the beds.  I've got two boys that share and I've got a container that has blocks, cars, anything small and then the other has the big items in them, that way the boys know where the stuff goes and aren't dumping out everything to find what they are looking for.  Also I've got these hooks that hang down from the top of the door and that is so good for jackets, backpacks and other things that can hang, it gets it off the floor when not in use.  I also rotate clothing b/c my kids will also try to wear shorts in winter so I remove the temptation.  I've also got the shelves that you can hang onto the wall for other items that can be displayed when not being played with.  Hope this helps!

Sure thing..... Smile! They are plastic containers that have lids and you can stack them on top of each other or not. They come in a ton of sizes and some company's have different colors as well. I was checking out Amazon and if you search all departments and then put in storage containers it pulls a ton up and you can also see a bin organizer. That is what we have in both of the kids room in there closet. Best of luck!

Each season I take the "out of season clothes" and pack away in totes to put away so all I am dealing with is the clothes that they are actually wearing that is weather appropriate.

Heather is right rubber maids are great! My three girls share a room we have a crib and a bunk bed set up in there with a six drawer dresser. We keep the shoes in a rubber maid with wheels under the bed so they always know where to put them when they are done using them. I cycle out the girls clothes as well but we don't use the bags I just put them on top closet shelf. We also put a toy box in the room and a organizer for toys or socks and what not in the closet and it came from walmart or target it has four big bins and three small bins so it really works out nice. hope this helps and good luck!!

Rubber maid containers! They come in all sizes, and they are stackable. Some have wheels for underbed storage, others have drawers and fit in closets nicely. They can hold toys, clothes, whatever you need them too. Also those vaccume bags you see on T.V. really do work great for out of season clothes. My kids like to put on shorts when it's snowing outside and sweaters when it's 105 degrees. Changing them out is a perfect solution, and creates extra space!
