Project: Tidy it Thursday: How to Organize Kids Toys! Had a lot of fun with this one and we’re really happy how it turned out. Thanks to my wonderful best friend Jackie for this vision!

• Time: many days worth!
• Would I do it again? yes! I loved how this turned out and the girls even keep it together! With the labeled bins it’s easier at pick up time to make sure things get to their original homes.
