Is it just me, or does it seem like your children’s toys start taking over your house? I can spend all morning cleaning up my house, turn around, and the toys have appeared again. It is almost like the toys have a life of their own like they do on Toy Story.
Remember my Confessions of an Organizing Junkie post?!?!
One area that I discussed in that post was my living room. Trying to dodge Legos and Little People can be a chore. My kids love to play in the living room instead of their bedroom, which I like, but I do not enjoy the mess afterwards.
So, I am trying something new…
I went to Wal-Mart over the weekend and purchased two black plastic rope handled totes for $5.97 each.
I wanted my kiddos to know which bucket was theirs, so I got out my handy Cricut and some white vinyl, create each child’s name, and placed each name on a bucket (with a little help from my daughter).
And, the final result (insert drum roll)…
I must say, my two kiddos were pretty excited about this $12.00 fix. Let’s hope it helps with the toy mess in the living room.
