Organizing the Cubby’s
Organizing needs Maintenance.
I use these cubby’s at our front entry way for a “drop zone”. But they needed some organizing in a bad way. I am in a cleaning and reorganizing mode… so I decided that instead of letting the kids go through them…. and leaving too much in them – they were getting a total dump and clean!
Each child has their own color cubby. They can use them from a drop zone (supposed to be temporary drop zone) for little things, hats, mittens etc. They routinely clean them out. But.. that has gotten a little lax lately and they were all stuffed to over flowing. Time to clean them out.
Look.. an empty pop bottle in my teenagers. I mean.. really? I guess he decided this was his temporary trash can!
It must be contagious.. because my other teenager had one too. ugh..
At least there is no trash in this one.
In come the trash bags…..
Don’t worry… I am not doing what I felt like doing… and trashing it all. That is why I used clear plastic bags. For one to tell who’s bag is who’s before I put it in their rooms. Also so that it didn’t get thrown out by accident.
I just dumped the cubby content into it’s own clear plastic bag. Then I distributed them to their rooms… and when the kids got home, they went through them.
Ahhh… so much nicer.
Doesn’t that look great? The only thing in there right now are my shooting gloves in the purple bin.
Organizing requires maintenance. Just like most any task in the house…. once is not enough. It is best if you keep up on it and not let it get out of hand… and it’s much easier to deal with.
If you let it go too long… it becomes this monster that you are scared to deal with… so it keeps growing and growing!
