Sort one bin at a time to regain a little order!
Just wanted to share quickly something that has worked for us lately. I hear a lot of moms (especially of boys) battle with ALL. THE STUFF. Short of taking it all out (which has crossed my mind more than once) this is ONE of the things we do that helps out so much.
On Saturdays, one item on their job charts is SORT A BIN. They know what this means. They have been trained to:
1. Dump the bin (Kutter the cat is a big help) These particular bins are discontinued but I found these that are perfect for the job and you can get some cool pieces that go with them. Cool new bins here
2. Sort the bin into three piles:
3. Slide the bin back into it’s spot
There are only 15 bins in this playroom and there are 52 weeks in the year so they get sorted a few times a year. This way, when it’s time to ‘clean’ the room, they can just pick up stuff and toss it in a bin and know that it will get sorted on Saturday.
Hope this helps someone!
Keep it Simple.
