Since we moved back in November we have had to find ways to downsize and organize. Jacob and Riley share their room so it gets messy fast! Within 5 minutes of having it cleaned Jacob pours his bucket of toys all over his floor. It has become our daily routine to pick up toys and make bed together every morning.

What has really helped are the bins under Riley's crib. We bought 3 bins around Christmas time from Canadian Tire. One for his Thomas tracks, one for his Mr.potato head, and one for his marbles. They work great and are very affordable. I like that they are clear so you can tell what is inside of each.

Jacob loves to do chores and be our little helper so I figured he could learn how to make his bed. He did it for the very first time yesterday and will get a sticker for every day he does that specific chore. He did such a good job!

Oh the toy conundrum! My 5 year old does the same thing! I can't seem to get a hold of it though. I'm starting to think he just has too many toys.
