Fall Toy Reorganizing

Toy Organization 
Since it is the fall and the holidays are almost upon us.  I decided to "Get My Crap Together" and reorganize my house.  I know we had a great summer getting organized, but let's face it.  It is a never ending job!!

My children have a LOT of toys.  And our house is not real big.  So it is a constant battle to keep their toys organized and away.

This was the previous site of our "toys".  They were also all over the bedroom.  Since my little ones currently share a room, we had to make some space and get a better system going.

We also have a ridiculous amount of children's books.  Don't get me wrong because I LOVE me some children's books.  But, they end up everywhere.  

So this fall I decided to "rotate" our toys and books.

I moved the toy cubbie into our family room and added some new bins to our space.  I went through ALL the toys.  Most have either Toy Bags or I Spy Bags already.  I boxed up most of the toys and put them in the closet.  This way we can take one out at a time and then play with it without everything getting lost.

I also moved the bookcase closer to the toys.  I put out about 15 books, many fall themed and put the rest away in the closet.  Around Thanksgiving, I plan to rotate the books and put the winter books out.  I have also found, if I put the holiday books in with our holiday decorations, they tend to stay "fresh" to the kids.  So when the Christmas decorations come out, so will the Christmas stories, etc.

I love this forward facing bookcase.  It is a DIY bookcase.  I posted a tutorial on it a few years ago.  Check it out HERE.
