Don't get me wrong, they don't look like this all the time. I'm fully aware that I have two 16 month olds and one of Bug's favorite things to do is pull all the books off the shelf one at a time. H grabs and drops, grabs and drops until he finds one he might actually want to hang on to or "read." Often as I get ready to read them their bedtime story, I'll organize the books where they'll stay until at least morning time. And I always organize them before I take the Bambinos' monthly pictures.
red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, gray, brown, black, white. Short sleeves first then the color spectrum in long shirts then "nice" shirts like polos and button ups. I have been known to completely reorganize the closet and put things where they "belong" after B puts their clothes away. I find it much easier to find stuff that matches in the morning if I keep all the colors together. Some people organize by size, I organize by color. Yes, I know I'm lucky B even puts their clothes away - he's a clean freak, remember?
Some people think I'm crazy for keeping shoes in boxes. I think they stay in much better condition so I've been keeping them that way for close to 10 years now. Plus, I find them easier to stack..... otherwise they'd most likely end up in a pile.
Oddly enough, these are my only three "things" I like things to be neat and orderly but these are the things that I'm the most
