10 Smart Storage Solutions for Kid’s Toys

I think Beck has about five toys total yet they always seem to be sitting out in the open. Before we collect anymore, I want to figure out a storage solution for them so I’m not left drowning in toys that end up stuffed in the closet. I guess you could call it preventative measures. Here are some solutions I’ve come across that are smart and attractive.

    I like the mix of storage options here – the attractive ones on display, wire baskets for similar type toys, and white boxes for odds and ends.

    This play table also functions as a coffee table. It’s smart to store toys in an area that the family gathers the most often.
