New Product Alert! Get kids organizing early on…

Whenever I see new organizing products for kids, I wish we’d had cute things like this when I was little…

elephantI think at best, my room had the standard dresser, bookshelf and closet. My sister and I actually shared the bedroom, so besides our beds, we pretty much didn’t have anything to ourselves.

This Elephant Ensemble by Innovative Home might have prevented some of our arguments over space and territory.  It has the basics: a clothing hamper, storage cube, waste basket and hanging storage basket with tiers. If we’d had this sort of thing, we might have been more enthusiastic about keeping our room clean.

And especially because it comes in other cute kid-friendly designs, each of us could have had our own theme, making it extra special.

I mean, why not learn about organizing early on? You learn to tie your shoes, make your bed, stuff like that. Obviously, no child is going to put organizing at the top of their list of favorite things to do (most of us adults don’t even feel that way about it), but it couldn’t hurt to guide them in that direction with cute organizers for their bedroom.

I know that I feel more inclined to stay organized when I have attractive looking containers and organizers, so maybe our kids can feel the same way?
