Those of you that know me, know very well that I am OBSESSED with Pottery Barn. However, there are just one too many $ on the tags there. I love every page in their catalogs and drool over every new item. I love you, PB!! Anyway, I love the linen lined baskets. Yeah, I'm one of those people. In our living room, I have one on the bottom shelf of each end table. One is for his "library" and the other for Thomas & Friends accessories.
Currently, Andrew has one of those 9-hole cubbies for his toys with canvas boxes. But, once Alex gets here, that's moving out and the toys will be stored in one of these fantastic baskets:
One for each little guy. And, I'm getting one of those nifty chalkboard markers (the kinds that don't erase without water. These baskets are huge and a perfect size to go at the foot of each crib/bed.
I know, you are trying to figure out how I keep down the toy insanity, right? I don't let him have all of his toys. Each month (or whenever I notice he's getting bored or needs something new going on), I switch out the toys. That way, he doesn't get overloaded with all the new toys and he won't get tired of the same things. It's always new to him. Plus, I have less to deal with (i.e step on, clean up, look at, listen to...) Bonus!
Anyhoo! That's my toy organization story. I hope you all are doing great with these challenges! Head over here for more info:
