ReDecorating by Rena

Here are 5 quick tips to help keep your child's space organized:

1. Size matters: Make sure your child is the master of his/her domain and is able to reach the areas that will help him/her keep their room clean.  Place a secure foot stool in the space so he/she can use it to hang up clothes, return books to shelves, etc.  Just make sure your child is old enough to use the foot stool unsupervised.
2. Dual Duty Furniture: Purchase items that can function as storage like ottomons, cubes, etc.
3. In & out Rule: Sit down with your child and negotiate a rule where if they acquire a new toy they also donate an old one.
4. Quick & Easy: Use command hooks that can hold up to 5 lbs to make hanging up clothes, coats, hats, back packs quick and easy for your child.  Position the hooks within their reach and move them as your child grows.
5. Lead by Example: Keep your own room clean as well as other areas of the home.
For more tips on decorating children's spaces, listen to my show with Victoria Pericon.  Enjoy your space, Rena
