It never fails. You have a garage sale to tame the toy tiger, then you buy more to replace the space left from someone else’s sale and the months pass with more clutter collected. Where we’re at right now, new house basement finished yesterday with all the stuff in bins back out or yet to be moved from Mark’s basement. So far we have two of those toy organizers with four rows of plastic bins side-by-side with a matching bookshelf butted up to another 8-cubby organizer with fabric bins and a media storage unit that has slots for games and puzzles. You’d think with all that plus a toy chest in each of their main floor bedrooms and two more 9-cubby organizers for books and three baskets apiece, we’d be good. But we’re not. Charlotte still has a bin of princess dresses and plastic high heels along with a wide variety of purses, lip glosses and fake cell phones. I need to know what’s cheap and workable to set out in our now very large toy room with a little area on the end for a couch and TV. And don’t be like Dave and tell me to get rid of a lot of it. I keep telling him the whole point of moving was to give them more space to be creative playing–with all their stuff!
