Living in a small house means you need to get creative sometimes. I would love to have a room for toys and school but in our current home there isn't any extra space...or is there? I'm blessed to have a decent sized laundry room- it's long and narrow with a huge closet and lots of natural light. Over the last week I've been doing a lot of decluttering and rearranging of furniture to create a laundry room/ play area.
I moved most of the toys onto shelves in the laundry room closet. Cost Free!! I just put the plastic shelves in there that used to hold cereal. I also reused some of my baskets from other rooms. I moved the kids table in so they have a place to play.
Thinking outside the box works for me
