I normally do not make New Years Resolutions (such as 'work out every day') because they are not easily kept. However this year I decided to make an easy resolution that can be worked on a little here, a little there, and by the end of 2012, I SHOULD have kept this one.
Therefore I resolve in 2012 to be more organized and less cluttered in all areas of my home. Easy! And fun - I love a good organization project. who doesn't? Ok, a lot of people don't. But not me. I. LOVE. TO. ORGANIZE.
My project started over this weekend already - the 'great toy cleanup' began in our house - which as many of you Mom's know entails getting all of the toys and their respective parts back together again. We have toys, toy parts, and toy paraphernalia gracing almost every single room in our house. It kills me! But I try to remind myself, this is just a season of life and one day I'll miss the mess. Anyway, in the toy cleanup, I discovered I needed a few bins for Griffin's room. One for the MegaBloks, one for stuffed animals, and two to be tucked into a rolling book bin we got at the Land of Nod outlet (for just toy junk in general).
Here are some of the bins/containers I'm considering - but if anyone has any GREAT toy bin/storage solutions, will you please share? I don't want to be buying more toy bins next year because these didn't make the grade.
