Most of our kids' art supplies are stored in baskets inside the built-ins in our dining room, at about arm-level for me. There are also 2 drawers in the built-ins, which I recently emptied out & had the idea that perhaps contain they could contain art supplies instead. Then I realized that putting crayons & colored pencils in a location that my 2.5 year old twins can access on their own when I'm not in the room was
Another thing that I think makes my organizing style unique is the fact that I live in an older house. Many of the blogs that I read (and love!) have authors who live in newer houses with a lot of storage space throughout the house. If you're one of these people, I'm jealous of you! I love our 1930's house, but it does pose an organizational challenge at times. For example, other than the bedroom closets, we're blessed with only a single hallway closet by the front door (an entrance which we rarely use). So we've had to be creative in finding other ways to store & organize our belongings.
If you live in an older house, or have small children in your house, how has that affected your organizing?
