I hate clutter too, it drives me nuts. The issue with my room is that I am running out of room to put stuff & I am always trying to throw shit away that I no longer use lol. I need to get some big baskets for stuff, at least that way it will look more organized...I just try to line stuff up like bigger toys & what not, but then that STILL bothers me because it makes the wall look cluttered lmfao (if that makes sense.)

Oh he pretty much does have his own space to messy up! he has his man cave that i don't even enter cos i know my head would just explode, haha, and he basically has reign over our bedroom. I'm so passive sometimes though, so he mostly just thinks my need for organization is funny.

come april we are starting to look, if not build. My husband hates it here, and he gets mad at me for "trashing" the house since i'm here all day long lol. But like I said it's tiny! our living room is maybe 9 foot wide and like 12 foot long.

Totally makes sense. We only have one toy basket with no lid, and it's clara's legos.
These have been a life saver

Ikea is our go-to place for EVERYTHING. haha
I have a smaller one of those for my workspace, one on the middle floor for shoes, one on the bottom floor for toys and use a huge one for Carter's clothes in his room. They're really reasonably priced too :D

OHHH.. I Like that. we have a bag for all the puzzles and then individual bags for all the pieces my husband hates it, but I told him we would never find the pieces if we didn't. lol. Doesn't he get frustrated trying to find things?? My daughter has autism so her room is organized but set up to how she likes it. She has to keep colors together not neccarly the items if they go together. She will say no if I put a toy in the wrong place and do it herself. lol.

aww :) at least she's good at picking up :D
my son is 7, so he organized it as he wanted, but he's pretty finicky, so it's done well.
unless you meant my guy, he just throws laundry in their rooms :x :D

That would drive me nuts. Yea my husband doesn't do laundry at all. he will lift if for me, because I guess that I'm pregant I can't lift anything (his thinking not mine) ...grr.. I quiet arguing that one, I got tired. lol. Our youngest is trying to take after her father. I um.. am having a hard time stopping that one. She will leave things out and I have to constently ask her to do it. She will be focused on something else and is like whatever. Yep daughter like father.
