For the past few weeks, home organization has been the word of the day around our house. We have a lot to do, but my office is the first order of business. Work has been busy, and as my mom always said, “Organized desk, organized mind.” She told me that when I was in 2nd grade, but it still holds true now.
But using my office for work leaves me with one problem: the kids. I’m home all day with them, and there are times when the need to work clashes with the need to pay them some attention. The plan? A reading area, in my office, where my son can spend some quiet reading time while his baby sister naps. It’s the perfect plan!
Right? Please tell me it’s the perfect plan…
Anyway, I have a secret weapon up my sleeve to keep that part of my office organized, too.
Our Book Box from Tidy Books is helping us keep tons of childrens books neatly contained and accessible while leaving the covers visible! It’s designed a lot like our Tidy Books Bookcase, which has worked like a charm for promoting reading. Each time he walks by, the covers catch his eye and, all of a sudden, he’s grabbing a book.
I’m not sure if it’s his age, development level, or an effect of the Bookcase, but we’ll take it!
The Book Box is like the Bookcase in other ways, too. The quality is beyond compare. This was a dream to assemble, even with the kids “helping.” Just like our bookcase, the quality of the wood is top notch and the finish is flawless. I don’t assemble many things these days and think about my grandkids playing with them, but I did with the Book Box!
And how cute is the clock? This might be the only place my son sees a traditional clock with hands, and he’s surprisingly interested in learning how to tell time on it. Right now, he’s a big fan of eightynineteen o’clock.
