I bet your kids also got a ton of toys for Christmas and that is okay. They need to play, to be imaginative and creative but as soon as January hits and the Christmas time is officially over I always get an itch cause there is just clutter everywhere.
We tip-toe through a land of Duplo, Playmobil, Barbie and Little People and in the end step on a Tonie Box figure which hurts so much you could easily have an open flesh wound. This is when I start to collect everything from every room start to organize and categorize and in the end order the right container/boxes whatever and tidy everything up.
I hope one day my children are going to appreciate the order of their things and put every piece back in its place but I also understand that they are to little now.
This post has been quite the process in the making cause I for myself had to work through tons of toys. Not only what my children got for Christmas but also the things we had already. At some point the mess just becomes so overwhelming that I have to do something. In this case organize the hell out of it.
I have made a long overdue trip to Woolworth and got tons of container. They have lot´s of different ones at great price points. I especially love the small ones for teeny tiny things and you won´t get them everywhere. Other than that I can recommend Ikea for bigger boxes.
