One thing I can’t stand is parts from toys and games tossed (and lost) throughout the house.  A while back I started organizing toys into containers.  They are stored high enough that the girls must ask to get them down.  They play with cooking stuff or playdoh or blocks, then we put it back in the container before getting something else out.  It has been a big help in reducing the clutter around the house.

I recently discovered the chalkboard vinyl and decided to pretty up our container labels.  I cut these cute shapes on our vinyl cutter and stuck them on.  I used a Chalk Marker to write on the labels (loved the marker vs regular chalk).

Plus, they are really easy to wipe off and re-label!
