Organizing for the New Year and a New Baby

Call it nesting or a New Year's resolution. Whatever you call it, I've been organizing.

We started with my daughter's toys.
I sorted out the toys she has outgrown, to save for baby brother, then separated the rest into boxes of "like" items (i.e kitchen stuff, dress up clothes, etc.)

Pre-organization: Lots of boxes, little rhyme or reason.

After: Every box has a theme and purpose.
Now we can finally find all the Mr. Potato Head pieces in one bin! 

And, as an added bonus, they are tucked neatly away in this
storage cubby from Target.

This process took a good hour or two. It could have been less if Laila hadn't been "helping" aka playing with all the toys we "found".
Next we ventured into her room and sorted through her books and pulled out the baby books for brother and organized the rest in her book shelf.

I even got a little crafty around the house and came up with some fun storage solutions:
Towel rod for ribbons attached to my desk.

Decoupage buckets for changing table organization.

Hair bow and headband holder made from a frame, ribbon, and hooks.
(This one was actually for a baby shower present,
I still have to make one for my own daughter.)
Inspired by The Paro Post 

Deciding to tackle organization for your whole house, or even one room can be overwhelming, but we all can take 5-20 minutes out of the day to commit to one thing, right?
If you are serious about staying organized this year, download this FREE Organizational Calendar from My Simpler Life. This will help keep you on track with small tasks each day like "go through one bathroom drawer".

If you are looking to get REALLY organized this year, and save your sanity a bit, make a "Household Binder" to organize important numbers, family calendars, bill organization, meal planning, chore charts, baby sitter notes, school assignments and special events, etc.
If you need a little inspiration, check out I Heart Organizing's Household Binder. (Her blog is a great resource for all things organization!)

For more quick organization ideas, take a look at this post by A Little Tipsy , and for FREE weekly planning printables, go to the Design Finch.

Happy Organizing!
