If any of you have kiddos out there, you know that you inevitably have quite a bit of toys underfoot. It’s not that you are out there at the store constantly purchasing toys or anything; it’s just that they somehow have made their way into your home and any parent can tell you, they have no idea how all these toys got there!
Well I am here to say, that no matter the origination of the toys, you don’t have to spend a lot of money on containers to house them all. If you just think outside of the box (or container), you can probably find some things around the home that can house the Legos!
Speaking of Legos…
My daughter loves her Legos and there are sooooo many small pieces. I had to find something sturdy to house them all when they weren’t in use. And then I saw on the counter, the container holding the animal crackers we had picked up from Costco.
Yup, I think this will work…
Boom! Perfect! And I didn’t have to spend any additional money actually purchasing some sort of container! It pays to shop your house
And then I thought hey, this container would be perfect to house all her little figures she plays with. So in went My Little Pony, the Bubble Guppies, etc…
Man, these containers work great ♥
Now my daughter loves to color. She has quite a few coloring books. Hmmmm, what to do, what to do… And then I realized I had this box that I used to use to house tax stuff/receipts/etc… But that was not a very organized solution and it was messy and hard to ever find anything, so the box was now sitting empty. Perfect!
Yup, that’ll work!
And a case that I was using for odds and ends, I cleaned out and is now her pencil-case!
What to do with an empty Folgers coffee can?
Use it for blocks of course!
Hey I’m not trying to re-invent the wheel here, but anything where I can save a bit of money, I am all for it!
Do you guys have any creative uses for stuff? It doesn’t have to be for toys
