getting organized.

like many of you, i've been on a organizing kick. cleaning, purging, finding a place for everything, & putting everything in it's place. this week i took on the boys' rooms. christmas provided quite the influx of new toys, & so i decided it was time to get serious on toy organization. luckily, it was easy as 1, 2, 3.

step 1: separate toys into "groups", i.e. cars, trains, transformers & power rangers
step 2: make shrinky dinks representing each group
step 3: fill basket with toys & attach shrinky dink "label"

ta da! toy organization complete. & the best part, my boys actually KNOW where each & everyone of their toys go, so it makes cleaning up a snap! (okay... my boys are 3 & 2, so cleaning up really isn't ever a "snap", but it's definitely made it much easier. & as always, click on picture to enlarge.)

good plan- I don't have a toy organization problem yet since Rowan's main source of entertainment are his hands and shoving them in his mouth, but I'll keep it in mind for some future date

I love this idea! I just recently found out that you can buy pages of blank shrinky dink paper at Michael's!

It's cute but good luck getting them to put them away. I become all anal and am like "no you can't put that car in the action figure box!"
