Today, our lovely friend Dong Maria from BabyDonkie is chatting with us about stylish storage crates for all your kids’ books and toys…
Dong Maria – Baby Donkie
As a parent of 4 young children, it can be so difficult trying to keep the house in order with the myriad of toys, books and stuff that kids seem to collect daily!
Let’s also be frank. Once I tidy up the kid’s rooms and house, the serenity of a clean house lasts about 10 minutes before the kids come and start causing havoc. All that hard work and time for a mere 10 minutes of cleanliness… it can feel like a never-ending chore!
Working full time and running my online store BabyDonkie, means I need to be really organised to ensure some semblance of order at home. As a result, I am always on the look out for gorgeous and handy ways to keep toys and books. As my kids start to grow, I also want easy storage solutions to help them keep their rooms tidy. I don’t want to always be the person who tidies up after them! I need to train them up now before it is too late…😉
Marie Kondo storage
I recently discovered Marie Kondo via her incredible Netflix show and I have really embraced her way of organising and decluttering things!
I have been on a mission ever since to declutter the home and all the kid’s rooms. It has been a breath of fresh air to be able to remove some of the mess and not feel so overwhelmed by all of the things, that as a family we seem to own.
In going through the KonMari process and finding joy in the things we were keeping, I have needed to find a way to store all the books and toys.
AY-KASA folding crate system
One of the most incredible storage systems I have found in the 7+ years of running my online shop is the AY-KASA folding crate system from Lillemor Lifestyle.
In sourcing storage solutions for kids’ rooms, I have tried different methods over the years. What I love about these storage crates, is that they are lightweight, flexible and, spacing saving. I LOVE that they are eco-friendly as they are made from 100% recyclable food-safe plastic.
They are available in different sizes and colours to suit your style and interiors. And they are so stylish they can be used not only for your kid’s rooms but in the car, garage, home office or pantry too!
We have used them in our house to store books, trinkets, toys and even shoes. Some of our beautiful customers have even used them as doll houses! They are so versatile, and I love that they fold flat when you aren’t using them.
