I have boy 6 and girls 9, 5, that are sharing sleeping space, we have a tripple bunk bed, two dressers and a trundle for clothes this is working so far. we need to create a little space for special treasures. right now dd9 is using a small firebox she aquired from dad. ds6 is using his top drawer, this is becoming a problem for him as little sister has oportunity to grab his rocks and idems and hid them, I am working with her on that, just like to know how you give your children room to keep their precious treasures.... shelves on the wall, hanging basket, cubbyholes, not sure what will work for us but would love to hear some ideas....thank you

he is trying a box with a lid, so far he seams to like his drawer, litl sis is presistent today at getting at him. big sis has moved her things to a high shel in photo boxes working very well. will keep thinking on how to help desr son 7 on keeping his things safe.

Is there a closet anywhere? I would recommend a shelf on a wall or in a closet. You could get some of those quart size boxes and as long as they are up high, lil' sis shouldn't be able to get them.
