When we first agreed (Malak and I) that February will be “Organizing Kids Rooms” month little did I know the amount of work I’m signing up for, as this is by far the most challenging project on our lists!
The amount of stuff we buy our kids is crazy, from clothes, to shoes, to toys, they are always growing and they always need new things. You have to have a strong organizing system to make the most of these things and keep your sanity at the same time, otherwise it will be utter chaos!
Today’s post is about a very simple organizing project Malak and I decided to finish, beside it being simple it also does not take any time, 20 – 30 minutes is all you need to organize your nightstand drawer.
This drawer, which is usually small and not very deep, can amazingly be home to all kind of junk and clutter, it qualifies as junk drawer #1 for me, since it is accessible from bed so I just tend to stuff it with whatever I have in my bag on my way out, or I just put stuff promising myself I will sort out later (usually this later is very very late!), it is also my standard answer whenever my daughter asks me where to put this or that,” in the drawer next to bed sweetheart!”
Malak and I are friends, we share the same passion about organization, but this doesn’t mean we adopt the same style. Actually we are totally different when it comes to organizing, I am always on the look for prettier, more decorated solutions , while Malak is more into clean, practical, easily maintained organizing systems. That is why this post, and the next few ones, will be what we call “shared posts”. We will write about how we used the same item, or tackled the same project, each in her own way, giving you 2 different perspectives, because honestly, at the end of the day, there is no universal way, or standard method when it comes to organization, it is all relative!
