Kids and their Stuff


My kids rooms always seemed to be cluttered with "Stuff". There never seems to be a place for everything and everything in it's place. They are pack rats but it's OK, they get that from me and I get it from my Grandmother. Periodically (every couple months or so) I go through my stuff and clean out what really isn't needed or I can't figure out why I even bothered to save it. It looks like it might be time to do that with the kids too. I'm thinking it might be easier if I do it when they aren't home lol.



Part of the problem is that the rooms are small and there really isn't much storage. I've been picking up some containers here and there to help out but we still need more. One of the big problems is the TV and video games. The TV ends up being right in the middle of a wall with video game components spilling out all around it. I think they need corner TV stand with doors to corral some of the electronics.

I've recently been given the opportunity to give one of my readers a chance to win a kitchen gadget of my choosing.  I need some help...what small kitchen accessory (under $40) is on your wish list?


I've always wanted a submersion blender...



or a fun carpet for in front of the sink...



this one resembles a quilt.   So help me out...please.

I'd love the blender, myself!
(the quilt-y kitchen rug is nice but the blender fits all kitchen designs).

I need to trash some of my clutter-y stash too ...but it's such a hard step to follow through on.
