As the holidays approach, I can’t help but think about all the toys that will be coming into our house. My kids are very blessed with the gifts they are given and I am not exactly a toy minimalist, but there does need to be a little order to all the toys otherwise I might just go insane.
Minimizing the amount of toys is a great idea to get some control over the toy chaos. I like this post by Loving Marshall she shares a checklist that she used while she was purging her sons toys. I like the idea of setting up some rules ahead of time. I am very good at convincing myself why I should keep something.
Where to store the toys once the collection has been slimed down? I personally like toy storage that is both stylish and functional. I also have found that I like storage with different sizes of containers to accomodate the different toy sizes. I get several request throughout my day to find the smallest toy you can imagine. They are much easier to find when they are in small containers.
These totes I found on Etsy here.
These cute storage baskets I found on The Land of Nod
I love the choices of colors these wire basket come in. Also found at The Land of Nod
When I know that I am going to purchase something that will get used and abused I don’t want to spend a lot on it. I Love this idea to repurpose some crates from the Cozy Cottage Cute. You could also use old drawers on casters.
I thought this idea to use embroidery hoops from Always A Project was cute. I could see them in a larger scale holding toys!
If you are like me, even after you purge some toys there are still more toys then what fits in a few totes. I really like the storage systems that have a lot of cubbies to put totes or baskets in.
Love this storage idea featured on Young House Love. Stylish totes to hold the toys and shelving for all the books. Perfect!
This toy room on BHG is a dream room of organization and it is stunning too.
Let me know if you have any great toy storage ideas or helpful hints to stay on top of the toy chaos. I would love to hear them! Have a great weekend, Moxies!
