How We Make it Work: "Kids Clothing Update" (Family of 9, 1100 sqft)

Hey all.

So I updated the clothing storage for my toddlers!

I don't know if I said this in the video, but it has really helped in NOT over purchasing.
After catching up on the laundry I am easily aware of what my three toddlers may need or not need.

Here is the short video with pictures included.  Wish I could have added music, but oh well ;)

Note: The older kids ages 10-16 still keep their clothes in their bedroom closets. AND... my apologies, I had a cold when recording. I sound a little groggy. :/

Keeping it real,

I purchased these lovely boxes on Amazon. yay for Amazon Prime!

I'm going to give you a BEAR HUG! {Children's Book Review and Giveaway!}

Age Range: 4-8 years
Hardcover: 32 pages

 You can Win or purchase this book from our blog on Amazon (kindle, hardcover or Board book). How fun! :D

What is not to love about this book!? We completely recommend this special book between a mommy and his son during what we would call a "bedtime routine". (And I thought it was going to be an animal book. A pleasant surprise.) 

The pictures are big, colorful and FUN to enjoy. 
PLEASE NOTE: your child or children my ask you to read it three times in a row like mine did! So precious. lol. 

I snapped these pictures right after we got it in the mail. It was perfect for Priscilla's quiet time.  Even though the book is recommended for ages 4-8, Priscilla who is turning 3 in a few weeks LOVED her new book. When I read it aloud, my captivated audience was ages 3-6 ;)
