Toy Control

One of my friends suggested splitting toys into different boxes then trading the boxes periodically.  The idea is that when the toys get old you switch for a different box.  The kids get a fun new set of toys every time a new box comes out.  Plus, there are fewer toys to cleanup each day.  It's a great concept.  But I was struggling with where to put the boxes.

Solution!  We brought these two cheap Home Depot cabinets up from the basement.  Doug screwed them to the wall so that they won't fall over.  I put the vinyl decals on.  Isn't it cheerful?

The big reveal!  Look at those beautiful boxes!  You can see the space on the left for the toys that are out in the family room.

This has worked wonders for parental sanity.
