I didn’t plan on today being a fix up day, but that’s what I ended up doing this morning, right before lunch and then continuing after lunch until about 2:30. I’ve been wanting to reorganize the playroom. I went to Target and the Dollar Tree and bought a bunch of new containers to hold toys and what not. I also went to JoAnn’s a couple days ago and found that they are having a HUGE sale on their whole store!!! I went in to look at shadow boxes and came out with over $200 worth of merchandise and I only paid $53!! I got a ton of new storage solutions and I finally found a bin that I could store dress up clothes in that I really like! I think I might go back and get another because all of their baskets were 50% off!!
So here are the before pictures of the playroom:
This is when the room wasn’t picked up. I thought it made for even better before pictures:)
I took those pictures a few weeks ago.
This is a in-the-middle-of-moving-everything-around shot.
I have been collecting containers and bins and baskets the last couple weeks, trying to find the right ones. I think I finally did. Most of them are from the Dollar Tree. And I LOVE them! Here’s the NEW room:
I am in love with this basket!! This is exactly what I have been wanting for the kids’ dress up clothes, but they’re always SO expensive. Well, since JoAnn’s was having a 50% off sale on baskets this one was only $10!! WOOHOO! I think I’ll go and get another one tomorrow because this one is full and I’m sure we’ll keep getting more costumes to use:)
Now, this is the closet, which is the next part of this room I need to pay attention to, but since it’s behind closed doors, usually, I’m not in much of a hurry. We’ll see how long it takes:)
Well, I hope you enjoyed seeing the changes as much as I had fun doing it. My 5 year old, Brynnan, keeps walking into the room and saying, “Mom, this is our new room.” I think that means he really likes it:) And that makes me glad that someone appreciates my hard work, besides me!

Great job organizing Megan! We are pass the toy stage but it wasn’t so long ago my house was like that too 🙂

It’s a hard time having toys everywhere! Can’t wait until they’re too old to have them, but a part of me Lao doesn’t look forward to that time either. LOL
