Tidying Up Toys

Just Tidy, Now!

My children are messy. Like ‘there’s been a burglary’ messy. We used to have one of those tall multi-container toy storage shelf, but it was making my house messier not to mention ruining my decor so it was banished to the out building. Obviously I could not banish the toys, but I didn’t want them taking over my house.

So I got a green basket for each room. Enough toys to play with, but not too many that would be overwhelming. I kept some toys in a closet, and I would rotate the toys around. This was mostly working well. But recently Dubz has become an avid reader. As he’s only 2 1/2, I do all the reading. Though he will happily sit down with a book and tell me the story. Anyway, his books have taken over the storage basket and Dubz cannot actually see his toys. So we got this adorable book caddy from GLTC to keep the books tidy.

Now isn’t that better? A box for random toys, and a caddy for books. Children’s storage is available from Great Little Trading Company.

We were sent this book caddy from GLTC for the purpose of this review. All opinions are entirely my own.

  1. Such a great idea to rotate the toys. Less toys = less mess and I always find when there’s to many toys available their attention isn’t held as long. Plus when you rotate the toys its like getting new ones all over again 🙂 #ToddlerApprovedTuesday

  2. Such a good idea. We have a fairly small house and Lambs toys are EVERYWHERE! I think I may have to limit what he has in each room like you have. Great tip xx #toddlerapprovedtuesday

  3. I love the book caddy! keeping toys tidy is the bane of my life too. I wish ours looked as tidy as yours do now.

    Thanks so much for linking #toddlerapprovedtuesday xx

  5. What a difference they make! I love the little book box, it’s brilliant. It really adds character to the room rather than clutter. I need these for my house. It’s amazing how much mess they make isn’t it? x #toddlerapprovedtuesday
