Just switched rooms again - trying very hard to stay organized. Not working too well. I ended up bringing two big boxes home! Anyway as I said before - too many years of teaching means too much STUFF!! I did throw several things away... but there was still alot of stuff that I just can't part with - tried putting everything with the theme I will use it with. Will let you know how that works!

Toni, you should come to my house and work and help me, LOL. Sounds like you have it together. I don't. Some days all I want to do is organize - other days it just doesn't happen.

Jen, you can come too! Wow, I wish I was more organized!

You sound like you both have it together!

Tami, I am the same way. When I do feel like organizing I just don't feel like there is enough space. I am always changing the way I organize it - Too many years of teaching = too much stuff.

I don't! I have a classroom at work - I do my best to keep it organized but it is not easy. But then at home I have even more stuff than I do at work that I use for work.

I have a separate office where I organize all my paper in a file cabinet, I actually have I tall one and a cabinet style with 4 drawers. I also converted the closet into all shelves for movies, arts and crafts, books, and more. I really love my set up.

:) That's what I would do if I had the kids here all the time. I work in their homes mostly - unless I have my bro and sis with me, then all the kids come here.

Speaking of being organized.. there's another thing I got to fix... My neatly organized boxes are not so much now that I've worked this week... :P

I am very fortunate to have a room to use as a "classroom" all of the time, and that is exactly how I have it set up. Several bookcases full of toys organized into "centers" or focused play areas, a play table and several racks of bins in the closet that I occasionally switch out for variety. There is even a built-in desk where I keep my binders and supplies.
It gets pretty chaotic in there during the day, but it is easy to organize at the end of each day, and my 3 two year old cc kids are starting to be pretty good about cleaining up a toy when they are done. My own, 4, is not quite as good....

Most of the homes I work in have toy rooms tho we spend little time in them. I'm not too fond of chaos and that's what most of the toy rooms look like. So we play outside or do crafts at the table. :)

HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA. Sorry.. The word toys and organized should never be used in the same sentence. :P

Right now I've got them sorted into buckets. Outdoor toys/Activities, Movies, Books, and crafts. I dont know how long it'll stay that way tho! :P

I keep my dates organized thru my gmail calender. Actually, everything is set on my calender but it allows you to create different labels which you can select to show on the actual calender. Then I can print it and give it to clients or if I have an email I can email it to them, or add them to the calender so they can see it whenever they want. :)
