Recycled toy containers

If you follow my Facebook page HERE, you may have seen this photo:

I organized my son's toys into various bins, reusing washed out cat litter bins that I got from friends.  They are a great size and stack well!

I sorted the toys into different categories.
{If you have young boys I sorted by Pirate toys, Disney toys {Figurines from Toy Story, Cars & Planes}, Toy food and dishes, Imaginex & Angry Birds fit into one, Rescue Bots, Power Rangers, and vehicles.  I need more containers for Duplo, weapons and Lego.  For now they are kept in something else.  Plus I have a toy box for all the larger toys and a laundry basket for dress up.}

I made simple labels on the computer.

I used scrapbook paper to cover the kitty labels.

I covered the front in packing tape to prevent peeling.

Here's the finished product:

Eliminate Huge Mess Tip:  If you have a lot of small toys, keep them up high and make kids clean up all contents of one bin before they can get another down!

It really is encouraging to me!
