It’s one thing to organize and declutter a room, but it means nothing if the kids don’t know where stuff goes. All the baskets and fancy containers won’t do anyone any good.
I’ve learned that lesson as I’ve been gradually reorganizing our house over the past year. It’s well worth investing those extra minutes to teach the kids where to put their belongings.
That’s where this classic organizing phase comes in:
“Don’t put it down. Put it away.”
Such a simple concept, yet so important.
I created a simple printable so I could remind both the kids and myself of this simple motto. We liked it so much, I decided to share it with you.
