I couldn’t help myself after my post. I packed up the kids and headed to IKEA. We got the paper roll (see last post) and a chore jar (write chores on a piece of paper, put in jar and let kids draw for their chore ea. day) and so far this is all fun. Hopefully the novelty won’t wear off.
And look what else I found. . . This is really a shoe cabinet but I thought it would be great for each kid to have small bin for anything that has to be taken to school or sports or whatever for the day. A kiddie out box, if you will. I have a very narrow space in my entry way/mudroom so this looked like it might be a great idea and only $99. Change out the knobs and hang a cool vintagey mirror for a little juxtaposition and viola (has anyone used a mirror for a dry erase? Wondering how well this works?)! I bought this mirror (hung horizontally) until I come across a cool old one. BTW, the new IKEA catalog is out with some cool new things and even better prices. And now…
