Re: Anyone else have a bigger family but a small house?
I tell people "we collect kids- not stuff, not pets, ... children". haha. We have 10 (7 all the time and 3, 50% of the time) and we do this in a 4 bedroom house. 1 boy room, 1 girl room and a baby room. bedrooms hold beds and clothes (and we are minimalist on that because I hate being over run by laundry) and each kid has a special tote that they keep their personal things in so that we dont get over run by stuff. We have craft things, books... play mobile. boys have legos girls have dolls. dress up box and a small ikea bin that fits on our ikea book shelf of a few misc. living in a smaller space with lots of people helps keep you grounded I think. Take away all the extra stuff and there is plenty of room =)
