Do You Need To Make More Space?
I always need more space. It doesn’t matter how much room there is in the house, there is always a need for better storage solutions. There are lots ways to overcome this. De-cluttering is the cheapest option as you can sell things that are no longer of use. Recently I sold lots of children’s clothes that have been outgrown. I made a decent amount of money from it.
With this being a new house it does have storage but it lacks anywhere to display things. I don’t have many ornaments right now. But now the children are through the baby and preschool stages. I would really like to have some nice coordinating things on display. Any surface that ornaments should live on has various family belongings dumped on. Mainly my desk is the place that is used as a dumping ground. This is really annoying for me when I need the space to work in my sketch book or iPad at the side of the computer. I am always making a pile of everyone elses belongings at the bottom of the stairs where they usually stay until I pick them up and put them in the correct bedrooms.
Do we really need more space or do we just need to utilise what we have in a better way. I am always trying to improve the way things are organised in the house. No matter what I try we still end up with cluttered cupboards and drawers. Pinterest is a great place for some DIY storage solutions and I am all for a bit of up-cycling. There are some amazing hacks on there.
My most recent up-cycling projects have included pen pots made from the bright pink Vanish tubs and a brightly painted shelf to display lots of our Lego Mini Figures…
These were great projects to work on and I really enjoyed making the
