Goal accomplished, organize upstairs

Well at least part of it, I still need to finish the loft area again.



We started by putting everything in the middle of the room.  It didn’t matter if it belonged in there or not, we just put it all there.


Then we started getting it all cleared out, which took a good amount of time.



Then I carefully put all of the pillows away and folded up all of the blankets.  The kids had a lot of fun demonstrating that the pillows were still comfy.


Finally I took a picture of what the room is supposed to look like when clean so Princess can keep it up.  She volunteered to have the movie room as the room she’s responsible for, and if it’s clean when Jeff comes home at night she gets paid a quarter.

    Giving her a picture of the room clean, as a guide – brilliant!

    You must have an awesome house! Great idea to take photos of it clean so Princess has a visual representation of her goal!

    I love that idea! I must start doing that with my boys since they are the primary “destroyers” of every room in the house!
