If you need additional storage, line up a couple of these bookcases. The jute bins fit perfectly in them.
Create labels for child's room, toys, clothes. Add picture of what's inside for very young children to help with reading. Like this, but better!
oh how i wish brian could make this for me. we'd sit and discuss measurements and he'd try to get me to stain it instead of paint.
Store all the toys in one room, rather than in each child's bedroom. Have small toys higher up and in snapping containers to keep the little kids out of them. Use an art table with a roll of paper over top for the coffee table in the playroom/area. Store washable art supplies in bins or drawers below the table.
