Lego Instructions Organized

I was playing Lego’s with my son the other day, and I noticed a problem. We had a bunch of Lego instruction manuals that were just being shoved in with the blocks and some of them were even ripping. So I found a solution. Make a Lego instruction binder!

All I needed to do was insert the Lego instructions into some protective sheets and put them inside a binder. While I chose to place each individual step into the sheets in order, this could also be done by putting each whole manual inside a protective sleeve. This may be a better option if you have a ton of different Lego sets.

Ta da! No more ripped and lost instruction manuals!

My favorite organizing products for kids rooms.

There are tons of home organization products on the market these days, including many geared towards controlling kids clutter. While there are many great items, here are a few of my favorites for organizing kids rooms.

The Ikea Kallax Shelving Unit-

There’s a reason you will see these shelving units in playrooms across the country. It is a great way to house plenty of toys, books, and clothes. The shelves can be left as is, or baskets can be added to conceal anything from toys to pajamas. There are many cube shelves on the market, but I like the Kallax because the cubbies are larger than most other brands. Ikea also offers many different styles of storage boxes that fit snugly inside the cubes.

Wall Hooks:

I love using hooks to organize my home. Hooks are a nearly effortless way to organize things and get them up off the floor. Putting hooks at kids level makes it easy for them to get things down when they want them and put them away once they are done. There are lots of cute hooks out there but I think these gemstone hooks from Land of Nod are adorable!

BEKVÄM Spice Racks:

These spice racks are used for way more than just spices. They are perfect for holding and displaying children’s books. Put a few racks next to some pillows and create a book nook in your child’s room. They are also great for holding stuffed animals, small toys, school folders, picture frames, and many other items.

These sturdy little boxes are perfect for corralling smaller items such as small toy pieces, hair clips, and arts and craft supplies. At $3.99 and $2.99 for 3, it is easy to stock up.
