Our New Toy Storage Solution

When we first started house hunting last year, one thing at the top of our must-have list was a playroom for DS. We were fortunate enough to find a house that has one, but (not surprisingly) the toys still migrate all over the place. Since DS’s toy collection has become large quantities of small action figures with tiny little pieces, I knew we needed a new system to get things organized.

I started with Sterilite Tall Weave Baskets that fit perfectly in our existing Ikea shelving unit. Then, I had to figure out how to label them. Sticking a label to the bin didn’t seem like a good plan because the bins are textured.

After browsing for ideas on Pinterest, I decided that I definitely needed hanging labels of some sort. So, I ordered these horizontal badge holders. (The colors are so fun!) I used free online clip art for the pictures, and Sharpies to add wording.

The labels are attached to the handle with simple zip ties.

I’m not a super crafty person, but I’m pretty happy with how this project turned out. The toys are all sorted by category, making it really easy for my 3.5 year old to find what he’s looking for. (We all know how preschoolers get when they can’t find the ONE toy that they want!)

I hope this post gave you some ideas for controlling the toy clutter in your own home! Happy Organizing!
