Christmas was a lovely time and everyone was so generous with the boys. It was great and the boys loved getting all new toys, but I was left with an excess of toys and no idea how to handle the storage. We went thru all of the toys and set aside toys that were broken for the trash, gently used for donations and then baby toys that we wanted to save for perhaps a brother or sister for the boys, but that’s not happening yet.
We were so happy when we had bags full of toys that were on their way out, but then we looked around and realized we were still left with a good amount of toys without a home. In the beginning of the new year I trip to Target for milk and cereal ended up with a new storage system for the toys!
So we went from having our floor look like this:
So easy to install and super slim so it doesn’t take up a lot of space, but it still stores quite a bit of toys.
We were also left with a nice tabletop to use for storage so I utilized it for book storage.
My favorite part of this system is the bin labels. I like for everything to have a home and this way we know what goes in each bin every time we play. Plus it’s helping Hudson recognize his letters.
My favorite part of the day is now clean up time. Even the little one gets in on the action and he knows where everything goes!
Are you going batty with toy storage issues as well? My budget finds were all from Target. The 9 cube storage system is $79.99, the storage bins come in a million colors and are only $5.99, and the metal bin labels are $5.99 for a set of 3!
Money worth spent!
