Anyone with a kid (or three) at home knows that the amount of stuff you can accumulate can be shocking—your once pristine, stylish abode becomes a veritable playground with every available surface littered with toys, tricks and tons of clutter.
Even if space isn’t at a premium, it can be hard to contain the chaos.
Now getting them to help clean up? That’s another story altogether…
Repeat after us:
Baskets, baskets, baskets.
The quickest way to go from kiddiepalooza to clean slate is to have a roomy (but chic) container to cast away the toys from grown-up spaces after bedtime.
