Call it nesting, call it homeschooling mom, whatever has gotten into me the last few weeks has my house more foundationally organized than it’s ever been.

I went on Pinterest to attempt inspiration and all I found were rooms dedicated to crafting and little ikea style baskets or trays close to the floor. I’m sorry but my children do. not. care. about the work I put into organizing, so our system must be able to be locked up or out of reach. 

Kids clothes: 
Sorted by size in big storage containers like this:

We are getting rid of dressers because #why and trading them for JONAXEL from Ikea: – I made little tags for each of their clothes for easy finding.


Here are some of my new finds: 


Drawers were labeled the following: 

  • Glue 
  • Tape 
  • Markers
  • Scissors
  • Pencils 
  • Crayons 
  • Notecards 
  • Misc Craft (popsicle sticks, pipecleaners, etc) 

I recycled old pasta sauce jars (until I get to Ikea for some cute ones) for the following: 

  • Tacks 
  • Rubber Bands 
  • Paper Clips
  • Dice 
  • Makedo toys (Highly recc. if you have a little architect):

I used little bins with lids like this to organize the rest of the chaos that once stuffed into our “junk drawer”: 

  • Batteries
  • Audio (headphones) 
  • Cords 
  • Extra Chargers 

I created a basket (easy to grab) for each of the following: 

  • Scrap + Craft Paper 
  • Teachers manuals 
  • Flashcards 

Anyway, if you get an ant in your panties and want to get organized, I hope this gives you some inspiration! 

PS. Check out this cute “Chore Chart” I made for the kids. Eeek. I love this stuff.
