Decently and In Order: Hampton Rental Home Big Boy's Room

Our oldest three boys ages 8, 7 and 5 share this room =)
The trundle bunk bed has three beds in the space of one!

Since the only furniture in the room is a bed everything else is in the closet =).

Their wardrobe is pretty simple: they all have 4 polo shirts, 3 dress shirts, 3 sweaters, 3 t-shirts, 3-4 pairs of jeans, 1-2 pairs of khakis, 1 pair of black pants, 2 jump suits, 3 pairs of shorts and 2 pj sets. They always have plenty of clothes to wear and never mitch match!

I got the half size bins and stuck them in the big bin to make a divider for socks and underwear =).

We usually go black Friday shopping for the pajamas once a year =)

 We have a few kids books, but prefer the library as we don't have to store the books when we are done reading them =).

One bin is just Lego kids are really on the Lego bandwagon lately!

 Joshua has a hot wheels track in the corner of the closet =)
 These bins are the 97cent ones at Walmart with a cricut label.
Way too many tiny Legos.......

Christian Noah and Joshua....three peas in a pod.....not really Joshua usually hangs out with Rachel and =) 

Decently and In Order: Hampton Rental Home Hallway and Bathroom

Welcome to our upstairs hallway =). As you can see organization makes everyone in our home happy =).

 We have a linen closet that is shaped like a triangle.....kind of an awkward shape for storing things especially towels/ we keep all the towels in the bathrooms and do not currently own any extra sheets =) 

The hallway bathroom is shared by all five children and is in constant need of cleaning =).

We keep soap and toothbrushes on the counter and everything else inside the drawers =). The little wax plug in the wall warmers work wonders in covering up unpleasant =).

 The top drawer holds floss, rinse cups, toothpaste, mouthwash, nail clippers and a hair brush for the boys. We just went to the dentist earlier this month and so thats why we have a bunch of travel size kids toothpaste =) The mesh organizers were purchased in the office section at Target in a pack together.
 Towels, washcloths, powder lotion and baby wash.
 The last drawer is empty =)
 Rachels Hair stuff is under the sink =)

 The Laundry closet ... the stuff in the right hand corner was left here by the landlord...

I used a basket to gather together the random laundry items =)

The laundry hamper is the only thing in our hallway =) This is the only place we collect laundry and so it forces us to not get behind on laundry =).

Decently and In Order: Hampton Rental Home Little kid's closet

Let all things be done decently and in order.

 This closet belongs to Rachel, Gideon and the new baby but still has plenty of space!

I love these storage bins! They fit perfectly into most closets and they come in all different cube amounts! I got the clip on dry erase labels at Target. 

 "Music" bin

 "Cars" bin

 unlabeled puppy bin for misc boy toys


 "Rachel" bin for misc girl toys.

 "Dolls" bin 

 "Ponies" bin for My Little Ponies and playsets.

 Rachel's side of the closet.....She has a ton of dresses...I didn't buy any of them though thanks to my two nieces.

Baby boy and Gideon's side of the closet

 Up top I have two bins: one for the Baby and one for Gideon to grow into =) All the clothes Rachel will grow into are in my nieces =). I also have the infant car seat up there cleaned and ready for the new baby!

 Inside the "baby" bin are clothes 6 months-12 months. I have them arranged by outfits and pants and shirts/onesies not belonging to an outfit =).

 In the "Gideon" bin I have clothes 2t-5t. Almost all from the same place I got the baby clothes from. There are a few things that survived Joshua and are in here as well.

Decently and In Order: Hampton Rental Home Gideon and New Baby Drawers

Let all things be done decently and in order.
I recently had to make room in one the drawers for our new baby coming in 2 months =)!

All of these baby clothes were part of the 5 Wal-mart bags stuffed with clothes for $5 I got off of a facebook yardsale page and a couple newborn things from my pastor's wife whose baby is now 2 months old =). I got the drawer dividers from Bed Bath and Beyond for $15  using a $5 off coupon.  

I paired all the outfits together on the left side.

In the middle section are onesies and pants that are not part of an outfit.

The last section has hats up top and bibs on bottom.
The second drawer has Gideon's pajamas.

 Lastly Gideon has his onesies shorts and socks stored nicely in these Dollar General Bins. All the bins in this drawer cost only $2!
Happy Organizing =)
