We have a fairly small living area on our main floor, and we attempt to contain his toys to this shelf. As you can see it is stuffed to it's limit!
I started by removing all of the toys from the shelf and spreading them out on the floor... I couldn't believe how many toys were hiding in this small space!
I selected a single toy or small group of toys for each cubby/basket on the shelf and organized the remaining toys into small baskets in a large storage tote. For toys with small parts I used fabric drawstring bags. I think that these baskets and bags will make the rotation of toys a much easier process when it's time for a change.
We were left with a much more manageable number of toys in our play area. Andrew has been having fun playing with overlooked toys and I know he will be excited to see some of his favourites make another appearance in a week or two!
