Tackle It Tuesday — A Toy Box for the Living Room

Tackle it Tuesday

My Living Room is a TOY Room!

Toys have taken over our living room and it’s time to fight back.

Ever since we got our puppy AJ, I have had to keep all of the kids’ toys out of the family room area because AJ likes to consume everything. We have a “great room” that has the TV area/family room attached to the kitchen and that is where we keep the dog.


So, the toys Olivia are playing with during the day end up all over the living room floor.

I have been meaning for years to find a nice box/chest for the toys. Finally, I bought this small chest from Walmart.



And it does the job! Yay for a tidier living room!

Wishing you Happy Tackling!

    Amazing how something simple can make a big difference! We recently got a new kitten and it is such a pain to pick up all the dangerous-to-the-kitten-toys at the end of every day!

    When we bought our new living room furniture 4 years ago, we got a storage ottoman. It is THE BEST! We’ve moved recently and have a separate playroom. A few weeks ago, I moved te toys into the playroom and store extra pillows and hte blanket in the ottoman.

    What a beautiful chest! And what a surprise that it’s from Walmart! I love that it blends in with “grown-up” decor instead of being bright and cartoon-covered.
