Good afternoon! I have been spending my morning attempting to reorganize my living room, as it was being swallowed by toys. Since Simon’s birthday, I have been looking to incorporate the new with the old, and to sift out all of the infant toys that are not played with anymore. Of course, doing this is a three steps forward, two steps back kind of deal, as Simon follows me around, undoing all of my progress.
I think a shopping trip to find a new set of shelves or bins is going to be in order. As well as some items going to Goodwill or to be packed away in storage. I am thankful that others have been so generous to my little guy, but I also believe that having too many toys makes it harder to play and fully tap into the imagination.
So, now it is nap time and I better get back to it before I lose my chance to get some work done without the toddler underfoot. But here are some links for you that relate to what is on my mind: toy organization.
~I would love to score a beautiful vintage piece for storage like Amanda did.
~I really related to Erin’s philosophy on toys and organization, and feel like it is the ideal I wish to strive for. Her post and photos are very inspiring.
~I think I need to re-read The 7-Day Toy Cure over at Apartment Therapy for some inspiration and motivation.
~Finally, I can completely relate to this hilarious post about the futility of cleaning with the child underfoot.
Do you have any good links or ideas about organizing and sorting toys? I would love if you would comment and share. I need all the help I can get!
