I would much rather spend my evenings blogging and creating projects over doing laundry, putting away dishes and tidying up the house. Unfortunately, this results in unnecessary stress so I'm working hard on keeping our living and dining rooms organized and toy free with double duty decor. Purging is definetely necessarily and essential in limiting toys, especially when you live in a small house. We live by the rule of thumb that if the toy bins don't close then it's time to purge.

I found a long time ago that it was much easier for my kids to put away their toys when they knew exactly where they went. This way they know where their toys go when they are done playing and if their drawer/area gets full then they are responsible for purging unused toys.Buying and using storage solutions that are both stylish and functional is a win-win for everyone in our home.

Trunks, chest of drawers, dressers and baskets are some of my favorite items to use to hide and conceal toys while also keeping our living room stylish. There is also a taller basket with a hinged lid that sits to the left of the entry table that is used for storing pretend doctor supplies.

With baskets, you can simply pile more things on top creating a tower of toys and clutter.

In the other corner of our living room, I have a large crate that I purchased from HomeGoods a few years ago.

One of my favorite new purchases are 4 vintage locker baskets that I bought from Luckett's during a recent girls weekend. They sit inside our media console and are perfect for organizing DVD's and Xbox games.
