Well, in my house, a drawer simply will not do. We just have too much of that little stuff. So, here is our solution. It really works quite well.
A clear shoe bag is attached to the wall inside our kitchen pantry. You could also use the back of the pantry door if needed. Use strong nails/wall mounts for hanging, because it will become heavy as more stuff is added.
The top of the shoe bag is filled with items that are not especially kid friendly, like wire cutters, screwdrivers, nails, tacks, etc...
The bottom pockets of the shoe bag are filled with kid friendly items. Crayons, stickers and tatoos, glue sticks, chalk, kid scissors, calculators, bouncy balls and spider rings....just to name a few.
It is really amazing to see that with this easy to get to, easy to see, plenty of room for storage organizer, all of us can put things where they go...and they are there the next time we need them.
As my kids have grown, I have noticed that some adult friendly things are now within their reach. For my older ones, I am okay with that. Just like junk drawers, the shoe bag needs a good reorganizing every now and then.
Here's to Spring Cleaning!
