This has been a long time coming for me! Before I bought this system, ALL of these toys were just sitting on the floor. And by sitting on the floor, I mean strewn all over the floor which gave me an eye twitch. I don’t know if this is normal, but I dreaded going in there to play with the kids. It was so unorganized and stressed me out. Aesthetics are super important to me also. When something looks nice, it makes me feel nice. (Scroll down for source links)
I took a page out of The Home Edit‘s book, and decided to organize the crap out of everything, label each basket nicely, and ROYGBIV the toys that are visible. Again… look pretty, feel pretty. Most everything magically fit in here after taking out toys the boys no longer play with! The bigger toys are in matching toy bins. Balls live in a round matching basket. I emptied out toys from their boxes and let them live in these baskets.
I’ve been eyeing Leslee Mitchell prints for a while and finally got my hands on one! They’re actually super inexpensive- you probably need at least one. I might go for a whole wall of the miniatures on another wall!
These rainbow blocks are not only beautful, but they’re so fun to play with! My boys are 7, 4, and 1, and all three are obsessed. I’m obsessed with putting them away in these clear bins by color! They’re definitely an investment toy… like I will save them for my grandchildren lol… but you get what you pay for! Gorgeous and functional.
Hope this helps you look pretty and feel pretty too!
