1. towels

2. buggy/pram (if/when you had one)

1 airing cupboard

2 in the (v large) hallway/or boot of car - still v much in use

3 next to toilet

4 kitchen appliances? In a cupboard in the kitchen. Things like toasted s/wich maker

5 they lived in the sitting room while in use. Loft as soon as outgrown.

Good luck! I love a good tidy up

1. In a large cupboard on the landing
2. The small buggy still lives next to the front door in the hall even though we haven't used it in months (must suggest DH puts it in the attic). When we had a pram, it didn't fold easily so stayed up in the kitchen by the back door, as we have a big kitchen with enough space. Not sure what will happen in a few months when we have a pram again, as the cats' food is now where we kept the pram previously.
3. In the bathroom in the space between the toilet and sink
4. In a kitchen cupboard (or cluttering up the work surface)
5. In the front room, cluttering the place up. Again, this could be a problem in a few months. DD clutters up the front room with her stuff, we won't have a spare room, no idea where we will put everything.

1. In the storage drawer underneath my bed. Towels being used are hung on the back of the bathroom door.

2. Main pram goes in the boot of the car. I also have a Silver Cross Kensington which lives in my living room to store toys.

3. We have a bench/shelf thing in the bathroom and toilet rolls are stored underneath.

4. Kitchen cupboards! Blender etc. are stored in their boxes on top of the kitchen cupboards collecting dust. Unless it's stuff like laptop (under the settee), camera is stored in its bag down the side of the settee, hair dryer etc. stored underneath my dressing table in the bedroom. Sorry wasn't sure if you meant kitchen appliances or not.

5. DD has a bouncy thing like a jumperoo. It's just stored in the living room, which is the worlds smallest room. I just keep it to the side next to the Silver Cross.

We do have a few toilet rolls in the bathroom but the rest are in the cellar.

JuniperTisane Tue 02-Sep-14 10:48:43

1. Towels in towel cupboard (small walk in wardrobe off spare room)

4. Not sure what you mean by appliances. Kitchen ones are in the kitchen (cupboards) or utility room.

5. Out in sitting room (didn't have anywhere else to put then when mine were of an age to use those things)

bambinibop Tue 02-Sep-14 10:53:18

1. Airing cupboard and towel rail in bathroom
2. Boot of car sometimes porch but it's a bit cramped
3. Utility room off kitchen
4. Kitchen cupboards toaster kettle on the kitchen side
5. Bouncy chair is in living room along with play mat and high chair all the time! I move them into dd bedroom if lots of people coming over. Highchair can be put away in utility room but as i use it many times a day I don't see the point ! Although dd had nearly grown out of bouncy chair so will put up in loft then. Can't quite let go of it yet she does sometimes still sit in it!

We don't have an airing cupboard hmm

We do have a cupboard under the stairs but that houses the boiler and not much else.

No upstairs storage other than wardrobes.

Beginning to think my house is just crap angry

SenatusPopulusqueRomanorum Tue 02-Sep-14 13:35:08

1. Towels : shelves in the bathroom.

2. Buggy / pram : in the loft or folded by the front door (DC3 is 22mo so hopefully we will soon get rid of it).

3. Spare toilet rolls : shelves in the loo.

4. Small appliances : in a wall cupboard in my very badly designed kitchen.

5. We had very few baby things. They were usually in the sitting room.
