Raise your hand if you want a picture perfectly decorated home.
I know I do, but Insert the reality check right about …HERE. Look, I love looking for new home décor inspiration on Pinterest as much as the next person, but when you have kids and a busy schedule sometimes it is just not realistic to always have that picture perfect clean home. Anyone who knows me, knows that I love to be neat and organized. I thought that it would be a piece of cake to keep the home together, since I would have all this extra time on my hands -now that I am a full time love-at-home Mom, right? WRONG. SO INCREDIBLY WRONG.
So what’s my solution? It’s very simple. I look for neat and chic storage solutions that also serve as home décor pieces. If there is a place for everything, then it makes a room look more put together than it actually is. For example, my 6-year-old loves to save every drawing that she has ever done in life, so instead of having endless piles of papers everywhere, I have a basket for her to store them in our family room. Boom-problem solved! Having a basket just for her artwork, also makes it easier for me to purge some of the items in the basket (when she is not looking of course). Basket, Bins, and Multi-purpose furniture are some of my favorite go-to storage solution pieces that keep your home together, organized, and clean.
Here are some of my favorite places to find inexpensive yet chic storage pieces for the home.
