Sometimes you just have to delegate...

Day #3 of the 21 day challenge and I'm already going against the grain.  Unfortunately, I had to stay home sick today with an enchanting mixture of head and tummy woes.  So, reorganizing the Tupperware/Pots/Pans Cupboard (my "white whale," by the way) was OUT of the question.  But, despite my pasty, naplike state, I managed to delegate a task to my girls.  Insprired by Toni's playroom system, I'm eschewing the non-specific baskets for some shoe boxes with LABELS.  Tonight, in order to be able to play a rousing game of Zingo with Mom, the girls had to round up allllllllll of their Littlest PetShop pets and accessories and place them in the assigned box.  They did great!  I promise I'll take the cupboard project off the backburner soon.

Aren't those boxes from Target the cutest ever? I pick up some new canvas ones that I love. I heart Target. And I didn't do day 3 either--my cupboard was already organized. :)

Hi Jenny! I meant the playroom "system" that Toni has on the sidebar of the Bowl of Lemons blog. She used a lot of the plastic shoe boxes to house smaller toys and labeled them. :)

Feel better soon!
I love the title of your blog - I'm sure your twins are precious and add a lot of life to your world. I've been asked that question a lot too... but we don't have twins. Our boys are actually 19 months apart - but I guess they look a lot alike or something because we used to get asked that EVERYWHERE. LOL.
Thanks so much for popping by my blog and becoming a follower. I am truly honoured! Looking forward to getting to know you better.
