Organization solutions that balance pretty and practical
I'm in a bit of a storage kick these days, trying to get all of the toys and games and stuffed animals and books that are out
in our apartment, into
something. Anything. Aaaaanything at all.
Okay, maybe something pretty. Is that too much to ask for?
I think the storage boxes
from Fiona Kate are so fabulous, I covet everything on the site and only wish the shipping to the US wasn't somewhat prohibitive. They're sturdy and handsome; just the right
balance between practical storage and decor you can live with happily. I love
choices like the monster box
which is so big, it can double as a table right in the playroom or a
kid's room. The colors are bright and cheery, plus all the organizers come with stick-on letters that are a step up
from your average Sharpie-scribbled label.
I also adore the art folders
, which can get you ready for all that school work about to come home each afternoon. Definitely cuter for the bookshelves than manila folders from office supply stores.
Our Down Under readers can consider yourselves in luck; these ship from Australia. The rest of us can at least find some
great inspiration on the site. And dream of a day that all the LEGOS
really do end up in the single box labeled LEGOS. -Liz
