  • That train track DIY is such a cool idea!ReplyCancel

  • Kay

    I’ve made an underbed train table trundle. I sprayed some particle board with green spray paint. I then nailed some beading around three of the edges and varnished it. Screwed two door handles into the fourth edge for gripping and moving the trundle in and out from the bed. I then had two “beams” to make the “table” that ran underneath the short length of the table and attached castors underneath the beams. I made it high enough such that the lowest height Ikea trofast buckets could be slid under it.

    It’s awesome. So easy to “pack away” the train set. Gets used heaps and very simple to make.ReplyCancel

      it’s so beautifully organised isn’t it!!ReplyCancel

    Hi – love the dresser to dressup makeover…
    How did you switch the smaller drawers from the top to the bottom? (I didn’t understand how you acheived that.)

    thanks – finding your site very helpful!ReplyCancel

    • Tash

      Josephine Im thinking they just turned the whole dresser upside down so the three draws that were the top become three draws on the bottom :)ReplyCancel

      • Josephine

        Thanks Tash – I wondered about that but thought that turning it upside down wouldn’t be enough, as the draw rails would also need repositioning.
        I guess once I get my own chest of drawers to start my project I’ll have to experiment and see!ReplyCancel

This post is sponsored by Lego Friends Lego would have to be the most used toy in our home, so much so that a few years ago we made my son a Lego Storage Unit in his bedroom dedicated to displaying his creations!  However we haven’t made a dedicated space for the girls Lego, they have so much of […]

    My son is in high school & my daughter is in primary. Lego has always been something that they could play together-it’s ageless! The kids also play with Lego sets that my hubby & I had as kids, they re-invent the playsets all the time. My youngest even takes sets over to her friends house & they play together. It’s so nice not to have them staring at a computer screen. I love to see what they’ve made- bits of grey space Lego mixed with the pinks of the Friends Lego equals a space cubby house with starship garage & coffee area.ReplyCancel

    My girls and I all love building Lego together. Thank you for sharing these storage ideas, I can’t wait start using some of them at home.ReplyCancel

  • Ebony Twiss

    My two girls 4 and 5 are relatively new to lego and I introduced it to them to build their own fairy houses. They built their Lego fairy houses in the backyard tree to escape their destructive brother, 2, and it has become a morning ritual to check to see if the fairies have been and see if they were left a present. They end up spending hours playing and adding to their creations. It’s worked very well!!ReplyCancel

  • Robyn

    I have 2 girls and a boy, aged 4,5 and 7. They love to play imaginative games together, be it from role playing a favourite scene, to running around outside making up games as they play together. They also enjoy making plans to create their next masterpiece from lego, playdough or paper, in fact anything they can get their hands on! We try to limit TV and computer time as it isolates them from the rest of the family.ReplyCancel

  • Maureen

    When my Grandchildren get together, at my home they play and create for hours, it is lovely to see the cousins bonding with each other, I have lots of lego at my place. the storage ideas are great must use some of the ideas.ReplyCancel

  • Christina

    My 6 yr old and 3 yr old love to play together all the time. They make fabulous desserts with playdough, help each other with Lego and Duplo, dress up Barbie and sing and dance together! But most bonding time is when they are in bed. They talk to each other in bed after good night kisses and until they fall asleep.ReplyCancel

  • Nadine

    I have two girls and a boy, aged 9,7 and three. My older girls think they are the “Mum” to their brother. The best bonding time is in the bath. All three bath together and they love to create imaginative games in the bath. They love using bath crayons as well as bath toys. My little boy loves taking his Lego in the bath with him. The best is when my daughters try and teach their brother how to swim in the bath and blow bubbles. ??????????ReplyCancel

  • Angela

    Thanks so much for the Lego storage ideas. Lego is such a great toy to play with but can be so messy so these ideas are great. I have four children, 8, 6, 3 and 9months. They love to play animal games, so they will be lions and they will make my 9month old the baby lion who they have to follow and keep track of and protect so all I hear is roar roar roar. They also like to play mums and aunties and our 9 month old is their baby. I love that they always try to include our youngest in their games.ReplyCancel

  • Melissa

    Such a great post. My husband and I bond with our 4 year old with lego. She loves lego she is able to do most of the bigger older lego by herself already :)ReplyCancel

  • Anna

    I have so many great memories of playing Lego with my 4 siblings. Despite the 11 year gap between the oldest and youngest, it was the one toy we all shared together.
    I found the same thing this summer with my children’s Duplo collection. They are aged 4 and 2, so when their older cousins (aged 6, 7, 9 & 11) were visiting from the USA I had my doubts that they would be interested in my children’s toys, however the Duplo came out on the first day and stayed out all summer, and I have pictures of all 6 children playing happily together!
    I’m working on building my Lego collection before their next visit in a few years timeReplyCancel

  • Mara Evans

    Definitely Lego! Keeps the kids entertained for hours. And Dad joins in too. My favourite is that after they finished building the instruction designed it all gets pulled apart and the real creating begins. Great for little imaginations.ReplyCancel

  • My girls bond when they have common interests, they are 3 & 7. Lego is a great all age activity (we love it to) as well as drawing together and for each other.ReplyCancel

  • My daughter is a very active girl, but the one thing she will sit down and do is play lego and she loves to get everyone involved building sets and using her imagination to build her own creations. It is the perfect rainy day (or to hot to play outside) activity for my girl.ReplyCancel

    My girls aged 7 and 10 bond with each other when they do things together. For example, they assemble their brand new Lego sets, play board games, help in cooking and even help clean each other’s bedrooms.ReplyCancel

    My three girls (2,5 & 7) love playing make believe together. Two of their favourites are using the outside cubby house to play cafe or babies, and playing schools. Lego is another good one because they need to cooperate and share all the pieces to build, then use their creations to make believe play with the characters.ReplyCancel

    My girls like to play with their lego and farm animals. They make scenes and can play for hours. My eldest has just found lego friends and wants to get some for her birthday.ReplyCancel

    My 7yr old son & my 4.5yr old daughter love to play with the figurines. They pull apart all the Lego people & make brand new people & super heroes using all their different body parts. Then they play out different super hero action scenes with my daughters Lego Frozen or Lego Friends sets. Its super cute :-)ReplyCancel

    My three girls love to play Lego. We store our Lego in several Lego heads and up end it all when its time to play. Not much fun for mummy to clean up. Will definitely be implanting a better Lego storage system now. Wonderful ideas thanks you.ReplyCancel

    My four girls 6,6,3, and 1, love playing with our dolls/barbies in the doll houses. It seems to bridge the age gaps wonderfully. Early morning or anytime the sunny corner of our lounge is witness to little voices and tiny folk going about their business. Their cousins and friends also just come in and settle down to play, changing clothes or layout, wether alone or with others it’s easy fun play.ReplyCancel

    Lego is a great bonding experience for ALL of us. My 11 year old daughter thinks she’s too old for Lego, but is happy to “help out” her 7 yr old sister with building the Friends Lego!! Ultimately she ends up fully absorbed in it!! 10 yr old son has always loved lego and Minecraft is his and his dads favourite. I have the Christmas lego too, and it is family tradition every year to build it all together!! Better than decorating a christmas tree!!ReplyCancel

    My four kids love playing Lego and I quite often find them all in a bedroom with Lego spread out all over the floor. The other favourite game is to play shops or restaurants together.ReplyCancel

    believe it or not but they play together on Mine Craft on their ipods ganging up on spiders and working together. I was reluctant to allow them technology at first but this game has changed my mind. It is highly interactive and sociable. I love the way they problem solve together.ReplyCancel

    I have four children 6,5,3 and 1. One of their favorite wet day activities is setting up the wooden railway track and then with in all the loops they make paddocks and villages and then set up a farm with all their farm animals and tractors (we are farmers so see a lot of role playing of our day to day farm jobs, and is scary how they mimic what we do and say!). Its great to see them play together and discuss their ideas about what should be happening. The older ones are also just starting to play with lego and have really enjoyed building some great creations, as long as they can keep the youngest away from all the little pieces!ReplyCancel

  • Noelle

    I have a 7 year old girl and a 5 year old boy. They bond really well when they are sitting at the kitchen table with all of their Legos spread out, playing for hours. My son likes to create different homes for my daughters little lego Friends to play in. There is usually a bad guy involved in the end and a good guy to save the day. When they need a break they go out to the trampoline for some playtime.ReplyCancel

  • Janine Hobbs

    Both my kids do it with toys! My son uses octonauts. He organises his friends to be different characters and they go on “missions”. The language they use is amazing and the getting along and group work skills is fantastic for him and his friends!! My daughter used little people to do a very similar thing when she was little. Now she is older her friends come over and they play Lego. Role playing with friends over toys is the best way to bond and develop friendship skills!ReplyCancel

    LEGO is certainly without age barrier here too. With a 14yo, 9yo, 8yo and 2.5yo we have some big age gaps, but lately they have been building rockets out of their Lego stash – my daughter uses her pink and purples and the boys mostly grey and black from their stash. They also like playing lightsaber fights or role-play in the yard (including the big one!) And sometimes the middle 2 can spend hours together creating with hama/perler beads.ReplyCancel

    Some great storage ideas however disappointed at the title of this article. Surely it could have been ’20 Lego friends storage ideas’ versus assuming this branding of lego is used exclusively by girls.ReplyCancel

  • My three girls 4,6,7 like to lay on top of each other and roll down hills together. Every time we go to a park with hills they pile on top of each other with the youngest protected in the middle, hold each other tight and the roll down a hill gently but in one block. It is so cute to watch them hugging and looking out for each other and ending up in a big mess at the bottom!ReplyCancel

  • As a grandmother I get great enjoyment watching my 2 granddaughters playing with their lego with each other and also on play dates. They live in Dubai so when I visit these times are especially precious to me as I miss them so much.ReplyCancel

    My kids, Liliana 5 and Raphael almost 2, pretend to cook breakfast and tea at their play kitchen and then bring it to me in bed in little bowls (duplo lego pieces are often part of my pretend breakfast and tea)ReplyCancel

    Ridiculously, my boys interact the most AND the most positively when on individual computers in separate rooms. They talk to each other via Skype at the same time as playing Minecraft – in the same world.

    My 5.5yr old son and 3.5yr old daughter are very different and have different interests. However they do manage to role play together with lego. Even though my son is very protective of his lego, he will give my daughter’s lego friends rides on his lego train etcetera and they have fun together. We are thankful for the great benefits and fun lego brings!ReplyCancel

    I grew up in the 90’s and lived on the Rugrats cartoons. Watching it always made me wonder if toddlers could actually communicate with one another.

    Now watching my niece and nephew, I know the definitely can. Mr 7 and little Miss 3 have these wonderful conversations with one another. I have no clue what they’re talking about but it can go on for hours with cuddles and laughs in between. It’s so lovely to watch them bond and strengthen their sibling love for one another.ReplyCancel

    My five year old daughter and three year old son adore each other and spend so much time together. Their favourite thing to do together is tell each other jokes. I love hearing them off in another room trying to make each other laugh.

    My girls 2, 4 & 7 love either riding bikes outside, but if they must be in, it’s either Legos or Duplos. With Lego Disney Princesses, we really don’t need any other toys. The use Legos to build doll houses, cars, play zoo, play trains, and act out all sorts of plays, there’s no end. And with Duplos and Legos, they can pick what scale to make it, either tiny to act out or BIG to use for their stuffed animals.ReplyCancel

  • Abbie

    Thank you for this post.
    We have HUNDERDS of toys as Grandma is a giver for sure.
    Having so many toys isn’t so bad in our house but when other children come to play the house gets trashed and some toys even broken!!
    I keep meaning to rotate them, but never really know where to start.
    There are some good ideas here. But just wondering what you may do with Dressups and Matchbox cars and Animals?
    Is it worth separating these also? Say 50% stay out. (Think I just answered my own question.. haha.) Or just put the whole Dressup box away?ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      If you have too much yes Abbie for sure put some away. I remember when my son was younger he had a set of matchbox cars for inside use and a set that were always kept outside in the sandpit (in a plastic container so no spider or insects could get in).ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      Hi Abbie, Yes i think leaving half out and putting the rest away and then rotating them every few months. With the dressup’s i have them in a seperate box under their beds only because i know that they go through stages with their dressup’s. And by storing them under their beds they can get to they easily and put away just as quickly.ReplyCancel

This post is sponsored by Howards Storage World I am really sad to admit the twins, now 11 are taller than me.  They are growing so fast, thankfully have their fathers genes.  But in doing so Mr 11’s current wardrobe system is no longer working.  The cubed system was great when he was younger  but now his pants […]

    Looks great. Lots of inspiration. I have just changed to the flocked hangers myself and am wondering why I didn’t do it sooner!

  • Aimee Douglas

    Good timing for us, we’ve just moved our 11 turning 12 in a weeks boy to another room and needed ideas for the wardrobe!

    Any tips re getting children to keep their rooms tidy? I’ve tried a few different things the last few years but I’m the only one who seems interested in keeping anything tidy!ReplyCancel

  • Looks fantastic! Love the elfa system.ReplyCancel

    • Katrina

      It’s a great system to mix and change how you want. If we ever move the next people could change it all up to suit them.ReplyCancel

  • Marion

    what a fantastic idea for the socks and underwear not folding them. Why have I not found this idea sooner would of saved me so much effort. Brilliant.ReplyCancel

    • Katrina

      Yes Marion, stop folding them will save yourself so much time. I have started putting all my kids socks and undies in a pile and get them to sort them, so much easier.ReplyCancel

  • Lara B

    I have been looking at the Elfa system for a while now, with this and your daughters wardrobe it has given me some great ideas. Is it easy to move the shelves?ReplyCancel

    • Katrina

      Yes you simply lift the shelf up take the brackets off the back panels and then place at another height, clip brackets back in put shelf back on then your right to do, all within seconds. Very easy to do.ReplyCancel

  • We are about to move Mr almost 12 into his own room, so this is quite useful! My two boys share a room and it’s tight, always messy and a step away from complete chaos. I normally go through it once a year and toss all the packaging they feel the need to keep for eternity, but I haven’t had a chance to do it for a while, so it’s pretty trashed at the moment.

    As an aside, I have the Elfa drawers in my laundry as sorting baskets. Brilliant! And I have two in the bottom of my pantry – one has lunch box snacks in it, and the other has drink bottles.ReplyCancel

    • Katrina

      Miss Maudy, Love your idea of the Elfa baskets in the laundry! Good luck with organising your boys room.:)ReplyCancel

  • Kate

    Looks so functional – fantastic. :)

    Just wondering if you can share the overall dimensions (HxWxD) of the robe space? We’re currently looking to renovate to create a 3rd bedroom so all kids can have their own rooms, and am trying to gauge what a usable BIR space would be – this looks great, but I think it’s probably smaller than what I’m currently allowing. And space I save in the BIR will go to the new bathroom, so keen to maximise use of all spaces!!


    • Katrina

      Hi Kate, Sure the dimensions are H: 2.4 W: 1.66 D: 500mm
      Good luck and would love to see photos when its completed.:)ReplyCancel

  • Kellie

    I have that space for two boys which I am just about to tackle. I have just put in bunk beds that has lots of shelf space but nothing underneath as a trundle. We do have a tall boy. I would need all across for hanging for both and all the Lego storage and you boxes under the bed now need to go in there. Would love some suggestions :)ReplyCancel

    • Katrina

      Kellie, i would try looking at Howards Storage World or even Ikea. I get a lot of great organising ideas from there.ReplyCancel

  • Mum's Closet

    I love this Kat. We are about to build a new house – I definitely got some great ideas for wardrobe storage for the kids rooms from this post, especially for Mr 15.
    Thank you, Claire x

    loving this idea – perfect timing for us too – we need to do this now ! thanks !!ReplyCancel

  • Elizabeth

    Hi there, fantastic idea and looks great but could you tell us how much the entire new fit out cost?

    Even a shopping list quote with itemised prices for each part so we can pick and choose what we can afford if we cannot afford to fit out the entire thing?


  • Marieka Battiato

    loving this idea – perfect timing for us too – we need to do this now ! thanks !!ReplyCancel

  • Bron

    Thanks Katrina this is very helpful. I would like to revamp my 12 yo boy’s wardrobe. It has built-in wooden shelves to one side and then a hanging rail across the rest. Can you retro-fit the sliding baskets onto existing wooden shelving? Otherwise I guess I will just use unfixed boxes/baskets from HSW or ikea etc to stash T-shirts etc

    Thank youReplyCancel

    • Katrina

      Bron, I would suggest taking your measurements into Howard’s Storage World and the team their will be able to suggest the best shelving or you.:)ReplyCancel

  • Leesa

    Hey Kat
    For a new season do you have a minimum number of new clothes you buy – say 10 tees?ReplyCancel

    Hi Leesa, No not really. If i see something i like thats pretty i buy it. I don’t really have a one in one out rule.ReplyCancel

This is a guest post by Lisa from Mummy’s Undeserved Blessings Are you one of those mums who are really good at rotating your kid’s toys? I admit I am terrible at rotating toys.  I think that is a great idea, but I NEVER get around to it. I think in my five years of […]

  • Eva Lewis

    Brilliant idea Lisa. I find that my son has so many toys and does get overwhelmed quite easily. I tried rotating them on a shelf, but it hasn’t really worked. I am going to do this, such a great idea and an easy way to keep everything tidy!ReplyCancel

  • Elyssa King

    Can I please ask where that white kids table & chairs are from??? 😉 ReplyCancel

  • Belinda Denning

    Elyssa King I was wondering exactly the same!! ReplyCancel

  • From Mum to Me

    Great idea – I started rotating toys a while back, and would put them away in the spare room. Then one day I realised I was always putting toys ‘away’ and never getting any others out. Oh well… back to the drawing board – maybe this would be a good time to do an inventory. ReplyCancel

  • H.

    This is a great idea. It’s like an in-house library, really isn’t it. A small photo beside each one is a good idea for non-readers.

    It also helps to identify toys that the kids have grown out of or no longer ask for that can be passed on to friends or a charity.ReplyCancel

  • Rachel Hockey ?

    Yes and the tent please!! Gorgeous space! ReplyCancel

    Does anyone have an idea, where to find these white table & chairs????? Would really love to know 😉 ReplyCancel

Kat I can only imagine how this reader feels, so lucky to have you help and make a difference. I love reading your blog.ReplyCancel

  • It is a great makeover Kat. We recently did something similar with our toy storage and it made such a difference to keeping things tidy! Love it!ReplyCancel

    • Katrina

      It does, and hopefully these little girls can grab the basket of items they want to play with and when finished pop it back into the basket and keep it tidy :)ReplyCancel

  • Jodie

    A great job well done! The presentation of the video was excellent. On your suggestion months ago (maybe even years) we bought from HSW, the containers that are divided up for shoe storage that go under your bed for Lego storage. Works a treat, we have 3 of them, so much easier for the boys to find that piece of Lego they are looking for when making things. Love your blog, keep up the excellent work!ReplyCancel

    • Katrina

      I love those boxes, our local HSW sold out of them for awhile and I know many people were upset by it. They say shoe boxes, but there are so many more uses for them!! I loved how the video turned out too, truly amazing!ReplyCancel

    What a brilliant idea! Although I don’t know if I’d have them in the hallway-as they aren’t very attractive- maybe in the garage? Extremely practical though-and a lovely story of how they came about though.ReplyCancel

    That looks fantastic – do you know if you can install a similar system without removing the top shelf? We are about to build a house and we’re having those top shelves installed. Thanks so much for your ideas!ReplyCancel

    • Trouble_Kat

      You certainly can, you just buy shorter uprights… also be aware that this post is sponsored – there are other similar options available out there!ReplyCancel

      • Yes you don’t have to remove the top shelf, it just means you have to work around the design with the current shelf in mind.ReplyCancel

    • Hi Claire, you can design the whole thing yourself and make it as high as you need. The team instore can help you with the design, I also got some ideas via the Elfa System Catalogue. There are also so many great add ons which would be suitable for your wardrobe, shoe racks, jewellery storage etc.ReplyCancel

  • Trouble_Kat

    The difference is amazing! I couldn’t afford to change master 4’s cupboard (or mine) yet, so I have put up with the shelving that was already there, and added an extra hanging rod that attaches to the high rod, now his out of season clothes go on the top rod and the in season clothes go on the bottom!

  • Karen O'Sullivan

    Looks great but did the poor girl really need you to share her undies on the internet.ReplyCancel

  • Justine Saidman

    Personally I’m not an Elfa fan. I did, however, buy some awesome drawer organisers from Ikea which have worked wonders in my incredibly untidy twin girls’ drawers! I used them for separating underwear into socks, undies and then a box for pjs and then the girls also have another one for leggings and other bits and pieces. My girls chose their own colours for these organisers which ensures that they know which is their drawer.

    You’re lucky that your daughter is tall! My girls are on the short side so they would never manage to reach a high rail in the cupboard, but I love the way that you have separated things out on different rungs. It makes perfect sense!ReplyCancel

    • Sorting makes it so much easier for them to find things and put them away again when clean, love the sound of your wardrobe, sounds very organised! Yes, my daughter certainly has her fathers gene when it comes to her height, Miss Tween and her twin brother are both the same height as me.ReplyCancel

  • Julia K

    I found SHOES to be a real problem with my girls. I ended up going with the acrylic shoe cubes from Howards. Both my girls have a little alcove in the end of their wardrobes and the shoe cubes fit in neatly. They stack so you can build the shoe cubby tower as tall as you need to accommodate however many shoes they have. They weren’t the cheapest of things to buy, but I considered it an investment in my sanity as I LOATHE seeing shoes lying about. It is SO much easier to keep things organised if everything has a home.ReplyCancel

  • 1ofthzoo

    Wow that is so funny, we just went to Bunnings to do the same thing with our ten year old’s room, so project is underway. a great tip to save on painting if you don’t want to repaint is to use the decals – ebay has some great finds to brighten up the walls. And Jacqui, its not very expensive, depending on how many draws/shelves you put in, you are only looking on average $150.00 to $200.00. Bunnings has some great tips, and even some graph paper to draw a sketch model up to fit your desired layout. Great fun!ReplyCancel

  • Amanda

    I love the way you have folded the shorts, that way she can see them all without destroying the pile! Going to use this tip for Master 7!!! Out of interest, did you remove the top wire shelf (as pictured in the top 2 pics of new design)? Just wondered what its purpose was? Or is it needed for the structural integrity of the system?ReplyCancel

    Hey Guys ?
    I know this post is sponsored by Howards (as much as I love them!) But if you go to Store & Order (formerly Store) they have their own ‘home brand’ which works with all the Elfa range. You can use that for all the basics, then if there are any specific drawers (e.g. pant rails) the Elfa slots right in ?ReplyCancel

    • Alex

      Sorry, just to follow up, that’s exactly what I’ve done, with an 1900mm wide space, after putting in all of the drawers (8) shelves (6) pant rails and hanging rails, it ended up costing about $1,500-$2,500 (I did it all in stages, and I splurged a little on the birch finish for the drawers as it’s an open space!)ReplyCancel
