As a busy mom, I have come to appreciate my home’s little spaces: the kitchen, the bathroom, the laundry room, and the space in between. Now, that space is my toy storage, my toy box. I love to bring in items from my childhood years and display them to show my friends that I’ve grown up and that I know how to organize.
I love organized spaces. I love the way my home looks when everything is neat and tidy. But I know that, too often, that space is not organized. When I’m in the process of organizing my space, I look for ways to make the most of the space in order to make it feel more like my own. I love keeping items out of my space that don’t belong.
At its best, the toy box is a great way to use up space. It is a time machine, which allows you to bring toys from the past and make them into something new. When I first started collecting toys in my early teens, I used to love to bring in my stuffed animals and place them in a toy box that was actually my closet.
That also means that you can reuse these boxes in a new location or create a more organized space for your toys. For instance, I keep my toy box in the main part of my laundry room because it is a great place to keep toys.
To use up space in your living room, you can place your toy box on your coffee table, or even better, on your kitchen counter. There is no right or wrong, just a set of rules you should follow when grouping your toys.
What are these rules? Well, it’s up to you to decide. One rule is that it’s not good for your toy box to be on the kitchen counter. Another rule is that it’s good for your toy box to be on the dining room table. A third rule is that your toy box should be on the bedroom nightstand.
Toys are generally grouped by age, location, and function. So toys that are primarily for play and play only, and toys that are primarily for storage and storage only, are placed in the living room.
It’s a matter of preference, but I’m a big fan of placing toys in the same spot. I like the idea of a toy box that is just for storage. I also like to have an easy place to grab my favorite toys when I need them. A toy box should also be organized for easy retrieval. If you are not familiar with the term “organization”, this is where your toys are grouped by function. Toys should be grouped by how well they play.
I was thinking in the past that toy organization was a matter of convenience, but I am more of a practical (to me) type of person. I don’t like to clutter my home with large number of toys. My toy box should be large enough so that my toys do not take up too much room and keep out of sight.
The most important part of toy organization is having a box and a way to access it when it is not in use. Toys should not be placed in the same place they were when they were first purchased. If your toy box is too big or the toys are not placed away from the box, they can easily fall into the wrong room or be misplaced.
