I live for organization

Remember how yesterday I told you that Target had provided me with an idea for organizing the mountain of toys in our living room? Well, Mike went and bought me the shelf I had been looking at and we had the MOST fun organizing the living room. And by we I mean me. I think I'm the only one who thought it was fun. Anyhow here are some before and after pictures. Just look what a difference it made!

See the stack of puzzles and books on the floor by the piano? And the overloaded plastic toy container in the corner? My eye is twitching just thinking about it.

So, we found a shelf with cubes and baskets on sale at Target to help with the problem. First, it had to be assembled. That is a boys job.

And afterwards, voila! Clutter and chaos gone! Organization and sanity have arrived. Also, we can use the baskets as a new time out spot.

Does he seem a little confused to you? Oh, and you know that corner where the toy box used to be? It's empty now. You know what I think would look really good over there? A Christmas tree.


  1. Hey, we have the same thing but in the wood version instead of black. I do love it

  2. I have one too! When they go on sale they are worth it! And it's just plain fun to move the baskets around and make different designs. Target is the best!

  3. Great idea...and a perfect game board too.....tic, tac, toe anyone?
