Who is looking for toy storage solutions?
You know what can drive me crazy?
Finding little pieces everywhere.
Now don’t get me wrong. If you stopped by our house on any given day, you may trip, slip, or step on something. I guarantee it.
But I have also found a promising storage solution when it is time to put away all the parts and pieces.
This way, when I am about to step on that lego, I say:
Please go put this with the Legos”.
Sure, #momlife means that I am actually saying this 102 times, buuuuut, the point is, they know exactly where we keep the legos. (SEE LEGO STORAGE HERE)

Storing toys in your home is simple! Here’s how.
Years ago, I started my storage using all beautiful baskets.
Beautiful baskets looked beautiful until they got crushed. – Real-life with kids, right?
I’ve come to better understand that a couple of baskets here and there add character, but the down to earth everyday storage needs to stay in a container with a lid.

Over time, I have come to love three storage bins from The Container Store.
Below is the shoe storage bin and is 13″ x 7-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ h.
Below here is accessory box and it is 7-3/8″ x 6-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ h.
Below here is sweater box and it is 15-5/8″ x 13-1/8″ x 6-3/4″ h.
Why I love these toy storage solutions:
a secure lid.
made in the USA.
endless amounts of storage options for your playspace. (or storage closet).
transparent for a quick and easy find.
will repurpose over time
Keep in mind, you do not have to run to The Container Store and buy 50 containers.
I started slow.
10 here, 5 another day. Every time I had $20 to spend on storage I got what I could to organize our supplies. You will see that over time, they accumulate fast, and make everything WAY more accessible.
Here is how we contain different toys in their own bin.
Notice how well these storage containers stack?
This is what makes it perfect to store small toys n the playroom, or in a storage closet.
Whichever fits your needs best, they will work.
2. The shoe box
This is a combination of the two storage box sizes stacked together.
Here is how the sweater box looks stored.
Now that you are organized, let’s talk baskets.
Begin to sprinkle storage baskets to add comfort to your playspace.
You know the BEST place to find great baskets? Goodwill. Every. Single. Time. Stop in and you will be amazed at what they have.
What to store in baskets:

“garbage art” as my four-year-old calls it
