I only have one child, but I am constantly in awe of how much junk my family seems to accumulate. It’s almost like our stuff multiplies when I’m sleeping – just to drive me crazy!
And, whenever I try to get rid of things, my husband and my son come up with some reason why we “need” to have 3,000 toy cars and 183 headless action figures. So, pretty storage containers are the only way I get to keep some sort of sanity.
For us, open storage containers work better than containers that have lids. For some reason, the act of putting a lid on a container makes it too much effort for my son and my husband. They will toss things inside bins though, so I have several bookshelves with large decorative bins that we use to stash everything from extra toys for outside to the surplus items from my couponing stockpile.
My current bins are plastic with a floral pattern on them, but I’d love to pick up some of these decorative wooden bins from Target’s new Privet House collection. Their vintage design is much cuter!
Privet House is one of “The Shops” at Target that will have items available for a limited time only. So, if you can find the bins at your local Target, make sure you get enough for whatever you’re planning to organize. Several newspapers are reporting that these items are expected to sell out quickly.
Have you had a chance to check out any of the Privet House offerings from Target? If so, let us know what you think!
