This is what the toy chests looked like before Christmas... Then the Christmas toy train took a dump and we were left with even more...
Mind you we only got our kiddos three gifties each. Eli - guitar, shoes and a card game. Cora - book, DVD and shoes (ahem... Nana and Nonno!).
It was time to purge and find a new way to organize!
We found this little beauty on Craig's List for $20 from the nicest family ever!!
(BTW Craig's List is the best site ever for buying and selling locally, check it out!)
I got some bins and Wa-La! All the little stuff goes in here and the big stuff can be stowed away in the toy chests above.I still need to do some organizing and a bit more purging but at least Eli isn't overwhelmed with the toy mountain and my mental clutter is gone.
