Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) November 2, 2006
Picture this ... it's midnight. Awakened by thirst, you make your way to the kitchen. Not to disturb anyone, you forgo turning on the lights and decide to slowly feel your way towards the sink. Tiptoeing ever so carefully ... Ouch! Crash! Bang! Yup, you find yourself on your backside because you stepped on a stray Lego piece that stuck to the bottom of your foot, and as you were trying to remove it, you lost your balance and fell on top of a Lego castle that your children built the day before. Does any of this sound familiar? While AP9 HomeWorks Plus, a leading membership discount program offered by Adaptive Marketing LLC, can't help with the bruises, it can help members save on purchases for their home ... like toy storage.
AP9 HomeWorks Plus reports that with the holidays just around the corner it may be a good time to clear out some of the existing toy clutter in preparation of new items. Donate toys that are no longer "age appropriate" and organize the toys that are used most often. This is a win-win situation. Donating toys during the holidays (or anytime) will help the less fortunate while providing you with a clutter-free (and accident-free) home.
Members of AP9 HomeWorksPlus can access a wide variety of discounts and savings by logging on to DealPass.com. Members receive up to 20% off at nationally-known home improvement and retail stores on hundreds of items that are purchased for everyday use or even gifts for special occasions.
AP9 HomeWorksPlus provides a few easy, inexpensive, fun and creative toy storage tips:
--Recycled boxes. Don't throw out those big boxes that toys come in. Reuse them for storing toys. Worried about the appearance? Don't fret. Cover the boxes with scraps of lively wrapping paper or use plain poster paper -- the kids can have fun creating their own colorful masterpiece on the outside of the box.
--Trash cans. Garbage cans come in vibrant colors (perfect for children's rooms) with a large amount of space for storing anything from books to balls. As an added bonus they come with a lid to prevent "toy spillage."
--Clothes hampers. Clothes hampers provide an inexpensive and unique way to store toys. Hampers come in so many materials, patterns, sizes and designs that it would be difficult not to find one that fits your needs. From the pop-up hamper to the wicker hamper, an organized house can be easy and affordable.
--Shoe boxes. Shoe boxes are great for storing art-related items like crayons, markers, scissors and erasers. Kids can decorate the outside as part of a fun rainy or snowy day project. And they are stackable. If all the shoe boxes are in use, empty coffee containers also work wonders in the storage arena.
These money-saving toy storage tips were brought to you by AP9 HomeWorks Plus.
