I have many home organizing challenges but I’ll mention one. I have a living room/dining area combo. My kids constantly (I am guilty too!) leaving their belongings on the table (where we eat). My oldest has a tiny room and lacks storage. My youngest has her bedroom upstairs and has a hard time putting things away. Not having a defined place to store kid’s stuff is a challenge.

Girl, you got that right! He is chaos on legs, and our cats are major spreaders of schmutz (schmutzophores).
