Spring Cleaning

I can feel that spring is just around the corner whether the weather wants to play nice or not!  I've begun scrubbing out drawers, tossing tons of junk, cleaning floors, windows, getting ready for the warm weather on the inside of my house so I can begin the hard work on the outside of my house...namely, my yard!  I found these baskets at the dollar tree....fun and bright and one for each child.  They tend to drop their junk everywhere so at night when we "put the house to bed", they take their little baskets and go around and pick up their stuff and take it up to their room.  The idea is that the basket is returned emptied and ready for the next day's clean-up.  It's not a perfect system, but were working on it! 
Happy Spring!


  1. You are so crafty! I love all your fun ideas and cute house.....and ADORABLE family :)

  2. I've got some of those. I keep one at the bottom of the stairs and put things in it throughout the day that my son can then take up to his room later that night and put away. I guess great minds do think alike.

  3. Hey Jamie...I saw this on some blog somewhere and tried it...maybe it was yours! Thanks for the idea! With so many kids things get so messy! Plus I love how they look going up my staircase!


I love hearing from you! Your comments are really appreciated!
