I have been taking tons of picture and have tons of ideas for posts to share with you guys but I have a high maintenance little boy on my hands. He currently has rsv and is sick because a coworkers children kept coughing on him last week!!! I am a FIRM believer in teaching your kids to cough and sneeze into their elbow (no one wants your germs people) So now this is what I have beside me at the very second in my bed.
One thing I wanted to share with you guys is how a reorganized storing my christmas ornaments. I have been doing some hard core down sizing and reorganizing around here to help streamline things. This was one project I wanted to get done. I normally wrap them all in tissue paper and it is a hot mess to deal with. This year I grabbed a few apple boxes from my hyvee and cut them into pieces and hot glued clear cups onto them. I stored all the smaller breakable ones on one
Then stacked some of the non breakable flat ones on top
then I had two peices of box left and I used these for the taller ones that are higher then the cups.
I then stacked the other piece on top to protect these
After that i had a few pieces from inside the apple boxes and I used them for some of the bulbs and less breakable ornaments.
Stacked the other on top.
I stacked the cup/ cardboard pieces first then the apple box pieces this helps protect them more.
It worked out soo well it was prefect. I have them all in there safe and sound.
