What to do with all those light sabers?

There is a stash of toys, next to the TV in our family room, that has been driving me crazy! It started off as a few light sabers on top of a box of videos. BUT, of course that pile grew as all the toys that didn’t fit into the toy cupboard got thrown onto the box.

And some days – like in this picture – even a mess of other toys gets strewn around it.


It definitely needed to be tackled!

But what to do with all those light sabers and other toys that don’t fit into the cupboard?

I decided to clear out the box and use it to store all the light sabers, etc. Yes, they still stick out since I didn’t have a tall enough box right now. But at least it is an improvement. Here is the after shot:
