Ballard Designs, Day 3

February 12, 2015

People ask me if my dog Charlie is 'organized.' 

Well, yes, but more importantly he's a happy guy.


Charlie knows most of his toys by name. He also knows he will lose them if he's naughty.  It's a 'toy time out.' 


We have a routine for toys (as I do for everything in my life). Every night mommy (aka me) gathers all the scattered toys and puts them into Charlie's special container. I don't want to wake up to a toy graveyard.  Charlie takes his favorite to the bedroom and in the morning I give him a few more to play with after we get home from our walk.  When it's evening the remaining toys are tossed onto the floor so he can pick and choose what will occupy his time before bed.


This is by no means THE way to handle toys with dogs but it's how Charlie and I do life.


Here is a lovely example of a toy container from Ballard. It's called a hemp dog toy storage container.

You don't have to sacrifice your design esthetic for any organizing tool!


Today I added two other fun items from Ballard onto my Zen Organized Life Board at Pinterest.  You'll find what they call in Feng Shui a 'bagua' mirror to enhance the flow of money into your home or office and an attractive file cabinet for those who shy away from utilitarian. One more day with the Ballard Catalogue and I'll move on to another favorite source for useful and beautiful things to help with your organizing journey.
