Another installment of WFMW! Visit Shannon's list for other great ideas!
As a new mom, I was trying to figure out how to store toys - what would be useful, practical, and not look tacky or be extremely expensive. This old suitcase has proven to be perfect! If I want to, I can condense the toys and close the lid ~ but even better, it is something I already had that works great for storing Emily's toys. Because it is too full to close, we haven't really had any trouble with caught fingers. I rotate toys in/out of here about every two weeks to keep things interesting, and she loves to play in and around it!
