This post is really just more of a quick tip for you rather than what I think constitutes a “post”. But it’s a helpful one so I’m going with it! My little sis let me know that if you have an Ikea Expedit Bookcase Target’s Itso line will work perfectly with it! The bins are currently on sale for $7.99 and hold a world of sins inside.
She has two sweet girls and her playroom bins are organized by color as pictured below.
I have two semi-sweet boys that refuse to stay organized no matter what method I employ, so the rule is “put all your toys away so that I can’t see them”. So far, this is working well for all of us! I also love that the bins can be pulled out like little drawers. (I previously had smaller baskets here that the boys would just pull out and dump. We’ve had less dumping incidents since the implementation of the Itsos. Where do they come up with these names???)
Happy back to school organizing!
