Squeeze that down to the 260 square feet of the average value resort and you can get downright claustrophobic. To save a bit of money, our family of 5 stays in one room. With one bathroom. And with three “boys” and two “girls” (my daughter and I), the bathroom storage situation is not ideal. And the clutter? Drives. Me. Crazy. Here are some tricks we’ve learned over the years to help you Continue reading Declare Your Disney Resort Room A Clutter Free Zone!
