Tackle it Tuesday #2

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

For this week's tackle, once again I started early. (Hey! I work during the week!) Once again I was in the kids' (5 and 3 years old) room. It was in big trouble! This time I cleaned, sorted and threw away 3 1/2 bags of trash! (Which I quickly took out to the alley dumpster before they got home with Grandma and Grandpa!) I also found a box of baby toys (remember my "baby" is 3!) to take to the church nursery. I started at 11:30 am and finished at 3 pm.

After I took the "after" pictures, I made labels with words and simple (very simple!) drawings and put them on the baskets: "Cars", "Trains", "Doll clothes", etc. The amazing thing....3 days later, the room still looks good! I've made them clean up several times a day, but they are enjoying having room to play.

Before I started

During (about 2 hours in! YIKES!)


Head over to 5 Minutes for Mom for more tackles.

Great tackle! I tackled my girl's room a month ago. It looked similar to your before pictures. I'm proud to say that they've kept it cleaned.

It looks so much better!!!

I am afraid, terrified, to start tackling my son's room. Mostly because I use his extra attic room space for storage and I have a LOT of stuff to clean out!!

What a great tackle!! I just did this to my daughter's room before school started. Now, she can find stuff and get herself ready in the morning. She is getting soooooo big.
