Toy Organization...Finally!

For many, many years we have just done the 'Toy Box' thing. Until now!!

I, along with the the help of the little girls (as long as their attention spans lasted, off and on!) divided the toys into different types. I decided what we were keeping and what we were giving away (some may still have to go!) and some that are 'going the way of the world'!

Next, we took pictures of the different types and put them each into a container. Then labeled the box with the coordinating picture!!

So, I really hope that this system will work!

The plan is, that with looking at the pictures and matching the toys that go in that particular bin, the girls will enjoy the game of 'Clean Up, Clean Up...Everybody do your share!'!!

And, YES, we really do have that many play phones!! With this many girls, that all love their 'Airtime', we need A LOT of PHONES:)!!!

Wow I wish I was that organized! I would probably go crazy with a label maker (if I ever got around to it, that is the problem, huh?) Thanks for sharing! :)

Just popping over from Women who do it all...

I've always meant to do this and never got to it! Yours look great. And I'm grinning about the number of mobile phones they need ;)

Thanks for sharing...
