Ultimate Blog Party 2011

There’s just a few more days of the Ultimate Blog Party sponsored by 5minutesformom. This blog hop has been a great way to meet so many other wonderful mom bloggers!

Congratulations to these three winners who participated in yesterday’s discussion on marriage.  They will win a CD of my workshop, Love For A Lifetime.

  • Jane (Roe)
  • Beccy
  • Alexandra (Howard)

I’ll be sending each of you an email with instructions for getting your CD!

If you’re dropping by for the first time, welcome!  We discuss everything from marriage to mothering and from home organization to living with less.  We’ve got a great online moms group here in the blog world!

I’ve been doing a room makeover at my house.  We’ve been lucky to have an extra room in our home that we’ve used as a toy room for years.  With our youngest child now 14, we don’t really have alot of need for toys on a daily basis.  Now, I am a Nana and my sweet granddaughter Rilyn is turning a year old this month so I do still have a need for toys, but just not quite as many as we’ve had in the past.

Over the years of raising 5 kids, I discovered some great ways to keep toys organized.  Here is one that has worked well:

Our toys were organized in plastic drawers.  The nice thing about this system was that when someone wanted to play with dinosaurs, we’d just pull out the dinosaur drawer and put it on the floor for them to play with.  Same with Legos, or action figures, pretend food, or baby toys.

Today I’m giving away two copies of the Hearts at Home book Getting and Staying Organized by Karen Ehman.  To enter the drawing to win one of these copies, simply share your best toy organization idea.

This blog is a place where we can learn from each other. If you need organization inspiration, don’t just read my posts, but also click on “comments” at the bottom of every post and read through the other ideas shared.  (If you read my blog in email, you’ll need to go to jillsavage.org to read the comments.)

What about you?  What’s your best toy organization idea?
