creative toy storageThe holidays are hectic enough without constantly cleaning up toys. Give yourself (or your significant other) a present this year and plan to store toys, creatively. Whether purchasing a storage solution or taking on a DIY project such as hanging floating shelves – you’re on the right track to calming the chaos of the holidays by corralling the influx of toys!

Here are a few cool storage solutions available from Amazon:

Storage bean bags

Linen folding toy box chest

Toy storage net

You can also purchase shelving units from Ikea and most national retailers. These units are relatively inexpensive, easy to assemble and are great at holding bins and baskets. For shelving units, bureaus and bookshelves – always use the safety anchors and secure them to walls because they can topple onto children who use furniture to pull up and stand.

If you have a toy box or hope chest and children in the home, use your power drill to add breathing holes into these containers in case a child gets trapped inside.

Shelves are great for stacking books, figurines or baskets to collect stuffed animals, cars, blocks, games and more.
