Decluttering and kids’ room storage. Stylish ways to hide toys away.
Hope you have had a wonderful weekend. We were lucky in the UK to have had a Bank holiday weekend, so the Monday off.
It is customary for me to Spring clean on one of the Bank holiday days, and I’m pleased to say, I managed to do some decluttering on Saturday.
I’m surprised at my renewed energy after my Summer break away.
I’ve managed to do 5 blog posts ( including this one) in 5 days. This is pretty out of the ordinary, because I usually post a maximum of twice a week.
If you fancy catching up on my blog posts, I have written about:
1.The most amazing Indian vegetarian restaurant in London that I have recently tried.
3.A super luxurious Urban resort in Kowloon, Hong Kong.
4.My Autumn Winter 2017 interiors and home decor curate for the Autumn Fair in Birmingham. Anyway, back to the subject of decluttering. I managed to fill up 5 large boxes with clothes and home decor that I no longer needed for the charity shop and friends. This seems like a good result right?
It’s such an uplifting feeling, when you can see the space in your home again. I’ve shown you an image of my son’s room, because I think we all know that children’s rooms tend to be the messiest space in the house. Do you agree that tidying a child’s room seems like an unending task? In line with the subject of decluttering, I have written a guest post for The Shurgard blog on the subject of “Stylish ways to hide toys in your kids room”
The image above is a little sneak peek of that post:
I have separated out, and organised Lego pieces by colour into plastic drawers. I’ve turned organising Lego pieces by colour, what seems like a mundane task, into a fun racing game with my son.
We each pick two colours and then try to fill the drawers as quickly as we can.
Do take a peek at more of my tips here, and I hope you’ll find them useful.
Have a lovely week all.
