Cleaning Tip: Use Baskets to Store Toys

Oh the toys … and the toys … and the toys. They can be and get everywhere. Have you ever accidentally stepped on a toy? If not, I can tell you from first-hand experience that it’s not an enjoyable or fun experience. It’s truly amazing how the toys can so quickly become scattered throughout the home. Under couches, between couch cushions, in the kitchen, near the dog food bowls, in the dining room … our house can become a toy war zone if we don’t stay on top of putting them away.

What’s my favorite way to manage the toy situation in our house? Baskets. I’m obsessed with baskets.

During one of my trips to HomeGoods a few months ago, I came across a super cute storage basket that, even though it’s on the large side, it does a great job of containing my son’s toys all while matching the decor of my home. I’m such a matchy-matchy person. So, as you can imagine, with all of the colorful toys in our home, the neat freak side of me was starting to tremble and get a bit anxious. Baskets to the rescue.
I love that baskets come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Stop by your local home decor discount store and you’re bound to come across a few options that you will love. Place baskets throughout your home and even in your car to help contain the clutter that toys are bound to create.
Once you have the baskets, be sure to put them to use. Whenever we’re done playing with our son, we immediately start tossing the toys on the floor into the various baskets in the room. That’s the other great thing about baskets. They don’t have to be neat and orderly since they conceal the contents. Simply toss in the items and forget about them until the next time you play with your kids.
