Day Eight- Kids Room (charlotte's room)

Goal: To create a safe, clean and organized place for Charlotte to sleep and play.
  • empty out armoire, changing table and closet and sort into three piles: keep/give/throw
  • replace only toys that are age appropriate
  • refill armoire and closet with clothes that fit and keep only one bin of clothes that are clothes she will grow into (we have quite a few people who give us their clothes...and as much of a blessing as it is, it can also be very overwhelming when we get too much)
  • re evaluate all baby items and determine if we really need them or if they are just cluttering up her already small bedroom (really think if I already have something that could fulfill that same purpose) ie: a sling and a baby carrier
  • gather toys/clothes that are not age appropriate and find another family(s) that could really use them
I have said this before and I will say it again...when you have a specific someone or a family who has a need...it makes giving so much easier!! Send an e-mail to your friends, family, people at church, your mom's group etc and see if someone has a need. You never know... and that way two families would be blessed. Yours, because you just simplified your home and theirs because they had a real need fulfilled!

Have Fun and Simplify
