Works For Me: Storage Idea

One of those dangerous habits of many people is to put things they need to take upstairs in a corner of one of the steps.

I've kept the childsafe gate to the attick.
On order not to put things on the steps, I took a bycicle bag... yep, those with the hooks... and hung it on the gate.
It worked so perfect, that when I found little ones, I bought a few, so now some of the children have their bag at the gate.
When I find something, I put it there and they take it to their room.

Downstairs the gate has gone.
But I've made a hook at a safe place and put a bycicle bag there too.
A nice reed one.

Nothing on the stairs again. And upstairs things are sorted before it all is stored.

It works for me.


Large families buy large quantities and need to have lots in store.

When I put things away I make rows on the base of expiration date, and put rows of items that combine side to site.

So the tomatosause is beside the pasta.

Works for me.

This is a good idea (and good timing as well)!!

What a great idea. Where were bloggers when my kids were little...
Ahh but I can try all these handy tips with my grand babies!

This is a cute idea. My little ones are out of the climbing stages. I wonder if I could use the basket idea somewhere else.

Thanks for sharing.

oooh.. good idea. You are a much nicer Mamma than I am. If I find a toy downstairs.. it automatically becomes mine.. all mine. (insert creepy world domination laughter here -->)

These are great ideas! I love having baskets that the kids are responsible for!
