This week we are asking a question from:

Yami Platero @ The Latino Next Door

“How Do You Keep a Stylish and Organized Home with Small Children?”

“My number one tip to keep an organized yet stylish home with small children is to purchase furniture wisely. By this I mean, always get furniture with storage. For example, I have a coffee table that has 2 built-in drawers so that I can store toys that the kids use regularly when we hang out in the family room. When they are done with the toys, they go back in the drawers and I don’t have to make the trip upstairs to their rooms to put them away, plus they are accessible right away when they need them the next day. Consider side tables with a lower shelf to add baskets and don’t be afaid to use decorative pieces for practical use. I have a blue entryway cabinet in my foyer that holds my baby’s diapers and toiletries, but you would never know! Ha! I just shared the cabinet on Instagram too if you want to see what it looks like!” 

This is such great advice Yami, I know my readers will love it!!! I am sure you all are dying to know my answers, since I do not have children, so you will just have to hop over to her blog and check out Blogger #11.  (Click here to link to Yami’s blog and the get answers from our 16 expert bloggers)
