Although little, kids certainly add to the amount of stuff around the house. There are ride-on toys and bikes, baby gear saved for the next one, baby pools, sand toys, and winter sleds. Instead of trying to store everything in a closet, look up for extra storage space.
We found this DIY sliding storage system that is mounted on the ceiling. No floor space required! It's a great way to store bulky and out of season items in an organized way. This project cost about $100 to complete and the result looks nice and neat. For excellent step-by-step directions, check out The Family Handyman website.
