Busiest Moms in the World Clutter Challenge The Budding Artist Part 2
Yesterday we went through our little Picasso’s art work. If you did not get finished organizing this one then work on organizing and digitizing those master pieces today.
A fellow blogger suggested putting the art items in plastic storage boxes, one for each child.
This is a great idea! I wish I would have had one for my oldest son but we moved around so much and I was so young that I did not think to keep to many items from he early youth. I believe the scrapbooking craze caused many moms to become collectors of all thing children that are cute and capable of being glued down to pretty-paper.
Today we are gathering all of our Budding Artist art supplies and tossing, giving and organizing.
Let’s Get Started:
Gather all the art supplies and put them in one place. If you already have this step finished this challenge is going to go by quick. If you do not then, you may need to do this challenge today and tomorrow. We can’t spend too much time on this challenge, its the weekend and its family time!
Toss the broken pieces and put the most used items in one pile and the items used every month or three months or so in another pile.
If you have not used several items for more than three months then consider donating these items to the local church, preschool or your child’s elementary school.
Take the most used items and organize them and find them a home that is easy for your elementary school aged children to retrieve and put away neatly. If they are younger you may want all items out of reach to save your sanity and your walls.
Take the items not used as often, organize them and find them a home so place out of the way.
If you have a label maker, then label as much as you can. This will save time in clean up later.
Now, when you get finished you will hopefully have a little more space and a little less headache for the next work of art your child creates!
