A Rainbow After the Storm

Uploaded: Sep 19, 2020
This week I’ve been enjoying Get Organized with The Home Edit on Netflix. Sometimes watching cooking shows inspires you to cook and sometimes they just make you hungry. Sometimes organization shows motivate you to clean but other times they leave you feeling overwhelmed with just how much work is ahead of you.

When our kids started school this fall I decided to spend a few weeks getting our home back in order. These past few months we’ve heavily used many toys and arts and crafts supplies. We’ve also rummaged through cabinets and closets looking for the best materials for various science experiments, marble runs and Rube Goldberg machines. I haven’t spent a significant amount of time cleaning, organizing and decluttering since sheltering in place started so it was a big project.

What I like best about The Home Edit is how visual it is for both adults and kids. Our youngest watched an episode with me and immediately noticed all of their rainbow organizational systems. Even a 3 year old understands that the red book should go back in the red section of the bookshelf. While I do not have the time, energy or desire to completely makeover our closets, we are going to try to incorporate a handful of rainbow organization systems into our lives. They are so visually appealing and hopefully will be a little easier for kids to maintain.

Our first rainbow organizational project will be the girls’ dresses. Wish us luck!
We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?
