Thanks to ClosetMaid, I was given a 9 Cube Organizer plus 3 Cubeicals Fabric Drawers to review here on Frugal and Fun Mom.
The ClosetMaid 9 Cube Organizer is a shelving system that can hold crafts, toys, CDs, DVDs, office supplies, and so much more. It comes in 5 different colors including white, black, espresso, alder, and dark cherry. In addition, it can be customized by adding colored fabric drawers called Cubeicals.
The Cubeicals provide a way to store loose items in an organized and clean way.
Here is my room before.
I was needing a way to neatly display my kids DVD’s, coloring books, crayons, and other crafting supplies. In the before picture our stuff was intermingled together in totes, boxes, and baskets. The kids had a hard time getting to their items, and would often times forget they even had them. When I walked in the front door of my home, I would see a garbled mess.
Now that their items are in the 9 Cube Organizer, the kids are rediscovering the DVDs they forgot about, and are using the coloring books and play-dough that are now stored in Cubeicals. I was also able to get rid of a few storage items and put them to better use in other areas of my home. Everything is easily accessible, and instead of seeing a big mess, I see a nice organized area.
Here is my room after.
Getting my kids stuff organized was such a motivator for spring cleaning. As I moved the totes around, I dusted and vacuumed under and behind them. I also ended up flipping the room around, creating a space for our home office, a space for my crafting, plus I set up an area strictly for the kids. Having our own areas in the room makes using this part of the house much more pleasurable.
How do you organize your kids toys? Have you tried any of the ClosetMaid products? If so, which one?
