I loved my last house in Ohio. It was beautiful and had a lot of character. I also had this notion that I needed to decorate my house in such a way that it appeared I didn't have children. Does that make sense? Everything clean and organized. No toys on the main floor. Pretty crazy and the upkeep was a constant battle. When I moved to our current home, I decided that I would go for FUNCTION and it has made my life easier, for sure. We have the laundry on the main floor - what a blessing! - instead of in the basement. I have one of those nifty laundry organizers with three sections to divide your laundry. Well - it's isn't hidden away - mainly because there's nowhere to put it! - but it's actually in the hallway. So you see it when you come into the house. With 7 people - laundry is happening on a daily basis. Also, 7 people = LOTS of shoes! So we put together a shoe rack which is ALSO in the hallway. Not something you would see on HDTV, but it works for me!
