We moved into our house 4 months ago and I am still trying to figure out how to keep it organized. I must have re arranged and arranged things 56 times. It is a 3 bedroom home with plenty of space. Well until the toddler years showed up. We turned the 3rd bedroom into a workspace/guest room. I believe a bedroom should be just that, a bedroom. Peaceful, quiet, & relaxing! So where to put all the toys?
You can see that putting 2 of these 4 cube organizers together doesn’t look great. Don’t mind the crayon on the floor and on her frozen ride. Notice the amount of toy junk just thrown in crates. Guilty. It’s much easier when you’re in a hurry to just throw whatever into an open spot. But NO MORE, I can’t take the clutter!!!
I’ve always said I refuse to let my home turn into a crayola crayon. Stuffed animals, dolls, push toys, ride on toys, blocks, books, and the list goes on. Before you know it they have invaded every room of the house! As she grows and moves on to new stages we have to purge old toys. Only to make room for more of the toys & learning tools. I’ve come to the conclusion; after living like a border line hoarder, less is more. Toys in general. Luckily we have ample space in our attic to store toys for the possible round 2.
As soon as I put up the chalkboard calendar it hit me, this will be the home for her toys! (click here for my chalkboard blog ) I found this 8 cube organizer at Walmart. The birch color was perfect for this space. When we got home my little babe was so excited to help me put this together! The first 10 minutes anyway…
Here’s our simple solution of making the most out of the space we have!
Everything has a place. I must have gotten rid of a laundry cart full of toys! Things that didn’t even make sense for her age. Yes, it was cleansing. Playtime will be much more enjoyable 🙂
