Toddler Art Cart Organization….

I have shared our art corner in our living room years ago and since we have moved everything into our playroom (reveal coming soon) we have added lots and lots of things to it. I have rearranged it several times but I think it finally looks good the way it is (might change my opinion in a little bit but for now it is all right, also this always depends on what art and crafts materials we have at the moment).

Art Cart Organization

We have the Ikea Rashult cart and it has the perfect size for all of our stuff. It has three stories and we have hanging container on one side to so it holds a lot of stuff.

The hanging container are also from Ikea but you can buy them on amazon or Temu as well. 

Organizing has always been my thing but to be honest it is hard with two small children but definitely manageable. So let´s start with the top storey. I have a little wooden divider (it can be also used for mail or clutches) and I have put all of our sticker and drawing books in there. We have a bunch and this ways we can finally see what we got. 

On the middle storey I have another divider to hold different kinds of papers/sheets. We also have felt sheets and foam rubber sheets here as well as sticker and a little basket for loose sticker and our googly eyes.

You can find all the small things on the lower level like washi tapes, erasers is cute shapes, stencils and anything else that could find a place in an art cart. 

I have got the golden letters on the hanging bins from amazon and it definitely helps to clean up faster and easier when you know where stuff goes.

This post means two things – the most wonderful time of the year is over and I can organize the crap out of our Christmas decor and start the new year fresh. 

I am very sad that Christmas time is over cause I have loved it so much this year. The girl´s had so much fun and where so in awe of every light and little detail. It was the cutest thing. 

But like every season Christmas also comes to an end and we have to pack away all things magical. But how to do so. I am gonna say it as it is – organize it now and save time later. I myself have thrown everything into boxes years ago and just put it away and when the holly jolly time is back and you want to decorate and only find half of it somewhere joy is gone very quick.

So let´s organize….

Christmas Decor Organization and Storage Options

Wrapping Paper Storage

I have shared all about it in this short Instagram Reel. It makes a hell of a difference to have everything you´ll need for gift wrapping in one place than in three different. You can see what you have, what matches and what you could restock for the next holiday.

This is new to me and I have seen this last year and wanted to get one once this Christmas decor period is over and I am so glad I did. It fits my 3 garlands perfectly and I can see what´s inside and it is also protected from dust.

Ornament Storage

I have gotten two of these divided xxl bins for my ornaments and I am very happy about it. They are pretty sturdy on the outside and hold a lot of our Christmas ornaments. You can also recognize colors from the outside so it is even easier to find what you need.

Christmas Tree Storage

I have used this huge bag for two years now and it is still my favorite way to store our tree. Of course this only applies to you if you have a fake Christmas tree. My mom is storing hers whole. She just has a cover to throw over and zip up. Only possible if you have the space and height to store it like this but also a great solution.

Pillow / Fabric Storage

I have folded my pillow covers, stockings, table runner and put then into this bin. On the other side are the Christmas pillows. Works great. This way I can immediately see what I got when I open it up again the next year. A little tip if you have lots of silky or shiny organza fabric – I put them in a empty pillow cover so they don´t get mixed up or a tear from another zipper for example.

!!!!!!!!!!

One last tip at the end of this post. If you are storing your Christmas decor in your attic where temperatures change a lot between Summer and Winter make sure to remove your batteries from everything possible. First of all they will decharge and not work when you need your item again and second of all they are more easily to leak with the wild temperatures and damage everything around because of the agressive battery acid. 

And another thing. Don´t store wax figures in your attic if it will get hot in the Summer. A few of mine have melted into unrecognizable lumps.
