I was inspired to organize my kids’ toys and put a “purpose” to everything they own because of my friend Jennifer. She is a sweet American lady who was a Kindergarten teacher in New York City. Every time we would visit her, she had a ton of toys organized so that they were all purposeful and educational. Music toys were in one bin, Old food cartons and plastic fruits were on a shelf for her daughter to play grocery; she even had a toy cashier register and play money in a wallet!
I was very blessed and inspired that she got me to organize my own playroom. Something that was really a project of mine waiting to be done. I got a set of shelves that I love from a store called Color and Life in Mega Mall and some plastic container boxes and got to my task. This is what my playroom looks like now.
