And I hope some sense of my organizational skills rub off ~ here you can see a solution to all the numerous music books and sheets that were cluttering up the piano area. A large crate – easy to access and use, but looks neat. Tucked conveniently into the laundry.
Next step for organization was the upstairs landing. We store books on the landing and Thomas and Anthony also have toys there. They use the space to play with figures and lego – their own upstairs playing area. But the toys were everywhere – a nightmare to walk over during the night.
We bought toy shelves from Aldi and organized the upstairs toys. Then I added a Monet print, just to make the toy and play area visually appealing.
Beauty can be organized – at least, organized in that we can plan for beauty in our children’s rooms, to place good art prints and plan attractive areas for our children. These plans are not obvious, but the overall impression of a pleasant area does have an effect on the souls of our children.
