When you have kids sometimes having a clean house seems like an uphill battle. Little pockets of stuff seem to collect all over the place! Today's challenge is to declutter - or at least hide it better!
Try adding decorative baskets or shelving to hide clutter in your house. Put toys or books in bins that can be hidden in a closet when they are not being used.

My front room is cluttered as we speak. I have to get some totes and get everything in order and write a label what is in the totes and make the room alot nice and organized.
by ShirreeMOctober 23, 2012 at 8:53 AMRight now I have no clutter!
Just had a baby so I went through my nesting stage and cleaned and organized everything!

Our living room has been overrun with toys! We actually set up a small tv in there with all our son's dvds and vhs tapes. But there are so many toys-he cannot just sit in there and relax. So weekend project is to get some big totes and bins and start putting stuff up in the storage area in the upstairs and the garage. We figured if he hasn't played with it in the past three months, we can store it away. We actually closed off that room when we had his bday party-too embarrasing to let anyone but the children go in there. Looks like a toy bomb went off! :)

My room is the most cluttered in the house because the shelves have become a catchall. I did clean it out a little last night to sew.

My dining room is cluttered. It seems to always be the worst in the house. I have bins in there now. I'm working on getting things organised. My table is a mess too.

by md_1015October 23, 2012 at 9:15 AMI actually decluttered my livingroom last week. It felt really good and still does when you can sit and feel like your not overcome by stuff.

My hall closets use to be... we just got new carpet a couple weeks ago so I had to declutter everything.
by Tink0711October 23, 2012 at 9:20 AMThat would be the bedroom df & I use. We have old stuff of dd's that we want to save, stuff that the boys can't quite use yet, and all our stuff. I try to go through a little every day & put what we still want in totes.
