The Toy Closet
While it isn’t the picture perfect shelving system I dream about, complete with matching labels and fabric bins…it has changed my life. I choose to invest my money in nice clothes, vacations and lessons for the children, such as dance class. So, when I need to penny pinch…it usually shows in projects like this. I didn’t want to buy all new bins, so I stuck with these from a big box store (each bin with a lid was just .97) that I purchased years ago. Then I simply removed the plastic drawers from a 3-drawer organizer I already had and placed them on the shelves. While I love all of the printables available online right now, I wanted to save every penny…so I just downloaded images from the internet and typed in a boring font (Times New Roman) to label each bin. The pictures help both our young children and babysitters find items in no time…and now there is no excuse for the children not knowing where things belong.
