Kelly Edwards Interview | Tips For De-cluttering Toy Rooms | [CLOSED GIVEAWAY]

Screen shot 2012-06-09 at 2.14.54 AM

Recently I put a shout out on OurKidsMom’s Facebook wall for questions they would like to ask HGTV’s Design on a Dime host Kelly Edwards in regards to organization and kids rooms. I had a couple of people chime in… one in particular mentioned they would like to hear her speak about : Anything about storage and organization! I am looking to open a daycare in a few months and I know one child can make a toy room look like a bomb has went I’m trying to imagine 7… 

Kelly mentions the concept of getting the toys off the floor. One great way for boys to have their race tracks but still not have constant clutter is by using Hot Wheels Wall Tracks. I, for one, agree that this is a fabulous concept. My Ethan (age 3) adores Hot Wheels and all that comes with it, but to have to clean everything up every day is overwhelming to him. Unfortunately this Momma can only handle so much clutter and after about a day or two I ask him to pick up his mess.

Without further ado… here is Kelly Edwards answering OurKidsMom’s readers questions.


ONE OurKidsMom reader is going to win a set of Hot Wheels Wall Tracks!
