Daniel did very well this Christmas. And since we don't really have a "play room" the living room and his bedroom are where we store the toys. In an effort to have the living room look less like a disaster area and more like a real room, we went to Wal-Mart this morning in search of something to organize it all. I'll be updating this post tonight to show you what we did!

Ok, here are the shelves and baskets. I'll have you know this was not a put-together system. I found the baskets in the laundry section, and the shelves in furniture, did the math and realized they would work beautifully together! Plus, they go with the decor....green curtains and accent wall, beige walls and couches, chocolate lamp bases.
Here is the "before" of his toys. They're not normally all grouped together like that, I just shoved the front three baskets near each other for the picture. Normally (i.e. not Christmas time) a bunch of them hide under the other end table on the other side of the couch. There are about 4 or 5 small baskets/buckets under the end table in the picture that you can't really see. We do have a wicker toy box in the corner for larger toys, but it overfloweth.
The "after" pictures will come either later tonight, when I finish organizing, or tomorrow! Ok, on second thought, looking at the clock, and gauging my energy levels, you'll have to wait until tomorrow to see the "after."
