I have worked with so many Moms over the years, organizing their toys, books, and clothes. I love it when I come across a new idea to solve an old problem. Here are some out-of-the-box solutions to consider.
Stuffed animals can be a challenge. We have all seen the hanging, mesh holders and the hammock. But I really liked this DIY idea because the kids can grab just one animal without dumping the whole lot. They can see the animals and, most importantly, put them back! It reminds me of zoo!
This was made from a $15 bookcase, some bungee cords with the ends cut off and hooks removed, and a drill. Impressive!
Consider using a clear shoe holder to store Barbies. It keeps them within reach and off the floor. And it looks great!
Use food storage containers to corral craft supplies. These are clear so your little ones can see what is inside. And it will make putting away these supplies a snap!
A fruit basket can become a toy caddie in the bathroom. The toys will dry out and stay in one place. Inexpensive and useful!
Toys with small pieces can live in tool chest. One drawer for each type of toy. It gives your space a cool, industrial look!
Try one of these solutions and see how it works for you!
