It's not that I don't try. It just doesn't come naturally to me. Dan, on the other hand, is especially good at coming up with ways in which we can be more organized. He thought of:
The Diaper Basket
Converting this coat closet into a toy closet
Storing some of the kids' other toys in these shelves. [Funny story about these shelves. The person who owned this house prior to us painted the names over each shelf as a "Designed to Sell" technique right before they put the house on the market. Cooper was the name of their dog!]
If I were organized I would definitely have painted over these names by now -- 2 1/2 years later. But frankly, they really don't bother me much.
The other idea that Dan came up with is to create a meals list each week detailing what we will have for dinner. We then make a grocery list based on the meal list and this has certainly made my life easier. I like cooking but don't like thinking of what to make. This way we're stocked up on what we need and I don't have to make additional trips to the grocery store with the kids.
So, for those of you who ARE organized, I ask of you -- would you be kind enough to leave me a comment and bestow on me some of your organizational wisdom? What have you done to simplify your life/make things easier with kiddos?
