Stacey's taking us from indoor storage to outdoor storage: I've been reading your blog for a while now, and i'm hoping you can help! Our son is now 2 1/2, so this will be his first big summer outdoors, and with it, comes... STUFF, lots of it. Bikes and balls, sidewalk chalk, bubbles, bats, golf clubs... it's everywhere. I'm hoping you can offer a creative AND cost effective way of storing all his toys. My hopes would be that it would be something that he could use, so nothing too complicated. i'm totally creative with storage IN the house, but move to the garage and i'm at a total loss. Thanks in advance! Well, living in the city, garages aren't something we're familiar with, but we'd think about something like the above storage bin for toys and other summer gear that he can easily throw in. This Toy Barrel would also work.
These Elfa Stacks with drawers are also a good solution for overall storage and possibly easier for a 2-1/2 year old to get at. Readers with space for outdoor stuff- share your storage solutions!
