Toy Organization....the best thing I ever did for my sanity!
This does not look like much....but these are most of Judah and Savvy's toys organized into separate bins. We have a large cars, trucks, and tracks box, a big box of balls of every kind, a box and a bag of legos, a dress up box, puzzle box, and stuffed animal box. We have a kitchen box, a doll box, a tool kit box, a train box, and then 10 little boxes of toys that are on the smaller scale. This has transformed their room! Before this I had every toy on the floor or shoved under their beds. They wouldn't really play with any toys because there was no room to even walk, now they ask for a specific box and we play with them and then put it away before they can get another box out. Even when tantrums happen at naptime and Judah opens the boxes on the bottom that he can reach it takes no more than 5-7 minutes to get them back organized! I have had them all sorted like this for about 3 months now and it is still going strong! Their room is RARELY messy and if it is it is only for 1-2 days. They are learning how to be more responsible with their toys and I am not going crazy trying to clean up a tornado every day. :) Organization helps! (all boxes were purchased at Walmart.)
Be a woman of Christ. Cherish your esteemed place in the sight of God. He needs you. This church needs you. The world needs you. A woman's abiding trust in God and unfailing devotion to things of the Spirit have always been an anchor when the wind and the waves of life were fiercest. I say to you what the Prophet Joseph said more than 150 years ago "If you live up to your privileges the angels cannot be restrained from being your associates." Elder Jeffrey R. Holland Ensign Nov 2005
How to live Happy
I have been very inspired by my cousin and one of my parent's missionaries because of the projects they do that make such a difference to other people. I want to do something but I have two babies right now so I am a little limited in my time and resources. But I decided I can share how I am HAPPY and things that I have learned that make mylife a little better! Maybe it will inspire someone somewhere. And if not, I am positive that I will end up learning more from doing it!
