Easy Storage Solution for Kids’ Toys

Looking for an easy storage solution for all those little toys your children have? Tired of stepping on cars, building blocks or crayons – here’s a solution!

For storage for small children, use ice cream buckets and put them under the bed.

To teach your child what things should go into each bucket take a photo of whatever goes into the bucket and glue it on the container lid.

This is one of the hundreds of tips you’ll find in the just published e-book “Thrifty Tips for Families”.

Oh Baby it’s Cold

Often people who are moving into smaller accommodations have older furniture or appliances in great shape that they can sell to you (garage sales, private sale, etc.) Keep your ears open!  When my parents moved from a big house that they had raised us six children in, they sold their old 22 cubic foot deep freezer to a friend of mine for $20. This mom of four was thrilled to have a freezer to store summer produce and baking in, and buying meat on sale in larger quantities was now a possibility!

Do you have a large freezer that’s only partially used?

Trade some space in your freezer with a friend for some homemade bread twice a week, or some pears off her tree in the summer, or something else you value and she has lots of!  Get really creative and make an offer! You never know what you’ll be able to trade or barter for.
