You Know You're an Adult When...

Things like getting a new shed seriously makes your day. Hubby and I ordered an Amish-built shed and we are both anxiously awaiting its arrival. We have everything blocked out for where it is going to belong, however we're still waiting on the phone call that it will be delivered. I realize it sounds completely nuts, but we are very excited about it since it will give us A) A spot for Hubby's motorcycle, the mower, and trimmer and B) A whole bunch of extra storage space that we desperately need! Over the last couple of months we have accumulated quite a bit more "stuff" after clearing out Mamaw's house of my old belongings and MIL/FIL's building and acquiring some extra furniture items from there as well as a few collectibles. The lack of space in this house is seriously one of the things that stresses me out.

What are some of your favorite space-saving techniques? One of the things I did recently for Fuss's room was to remove the large bin that was her toy box and buying one of these (not an affiliate link or anything, just something I found and I liked) for her to put her toys in. However, she recently threw a fit over the past weekend and had quite a few toys taken away that she must now earn back. Talk about feeling like a horrible Mommy!

Another thing I did was take some Command Hooks and put them on the sides of Fuss's toddler bed for her to hang her princess dresses on. I really LOVE how that turned out! And she loves that she has her dresses all hung up nicely where she can reach them whenever she wants to play with them.

Do you have any other creative ideas for storage and organization in a small space? We will soon have 2 children in 1 room for a while. We definitely need all the help we can get!
