Long term or short term?
We've lived in the house for 4 years before the first baby came along. I thought I had it well organized - my cleaning supplies, pantry shelves, laundry room, paper filing system, etc. -- it all seemed to work well. Now with the toddler in the house, (and who knows maybe more kids in the future), I am constantly in need of changing and reorganization. The things I need to store, to access quickly, to protect from child's access - they all affect every single room/area in the house.
I am thinking about going through the house area by area and redifining / reorganizing as needed. But then I stop and think - "our needs will be different in few years. how often do I reorganize my organization system?"
So my question is - how do you organize your house keeping in mind you need to grow with kids? Do you do it based on what your needs are today/this year, and then revisit it again next year? Or do you have a system that worked for years regardless of kids' age? What worked for you?
